The Phenomenauts – “I Am Not Robot” (play)
Hailing from a planet near Oakland, CA whose name you can’t pronounce, The Phenomenauts have been practicing their space-o-billy stage wizardry for over a decade in earth years. For them it is but an eye blink, and here we find the ‘nauts in a do-wopppish state of robot reverie, dreaming of electric sheep. This is a band that set up uninvited outside the Warped Tour one summer, played with a generator next to their van, which itself looks like a comic space ship, won fans over and were eventually added to the tour lineup. That’s badass. Robots or not, these guys have tons of heart. And this song is gr8.
