Man or Astro-man?

Christian Montero

History

Main Members: Birdstuff (Brian Teasley), Coco The Electronic Monkey Wizard (Robert DelBueno), and Star Crunch (Brian Causey).

The group was formed in Auburn, Alabama in the early 1990's. They are a very instrumental group and blend the style of Dick Dale and The Spotnicks with the new wave and punk rock sound of the 1970's and 1980's. Their earlier albums were known for their traditional surf rock instrumentation and sci-fi sound bite song introductions, but their later albums were known for their use of synthesizer, printers (like the Apple ImageWriter II), and their more abstract, experimental sound. Their recordings were often peppered with sound bites from obscure science fiction films and TV shows.

Brian Causey composed and performed the theme song for the popular Nickelodeon TV series, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron.
