Man Or Astro-Man? – “Disintegrate”

By Tom Breihan / April 18, 2013

The great Alabama sci-fi surf-rock revivalists Man Or Astro-Man? were among the most prolific bands on the American underground touring circuit in the ’90s, which is saying something, since bands back then used to crank out new records like nobody’s business. But Man Or Astro-Man?, though they’ve been intermittently active on the road over the past decade, haven’t released a new album in 12 years. That changes next month, when the band’s new one Defcon 5…4…3…2…1 comes out. “Disintegrate,” the first song we’ve heard from the album, is a bit of a departure for this mostly instrumental band. It sounds like a particularly toothy take on vintage Sonic Youth fuzz-rock, and it’s really good. Listen to it below.
