Biography

1) Anarcho-punk band inspired in CRASS Records. https://www.facebook.com/TheAstronautsBand

2) Surf band from Colorado in the early 1960’s. Their appeal was primarily regional, but their 1963 single “Baja” drew national attention and reached #94 on the Billboard pop charts.

3) A nostalgic surf rock band from Bielefeld, Germany. Their style is instrumental space-surf rock n’ roll. The liner notes from their 10” EP “Lost in Space”, released in 1993 by Pin Up Records, shed some light on their retro aesthetic: “Do you play your Pin Up Monaural long-play recordings on a Mono phonograph? Please do.

4) Hudson Valley, NY rock band “Astronauts” consisted of 4 great friends and a desire to create music from the heart. 2 CDs and a demo were recorded (‘Wizards’, ‘Avanti’, and ‘Deep Vermont’) under the original line up consisting of Chris Bigley, Corey Burleigh, Simon Hegarty, and Steven Markota. Under the stress of juggling school and touring, Corey and Chris parted ways with Astronauts. Needing a guitar player and a singer, Steven and Simon found Mike Tash and Jacob Kolbinski to play. A 2 song demo was recorded, entitled “Boneshaker”. The new line up of Astronauts played many shows but the original fire was not there. Astronauts soon fizzled out and new bands were started.


1) Anarcho-punk band. Inspired by the UK punk explosion. Mark Astronaut formed the band with a few friends in 1977 and began playing local gigs in their hometown of Welwyn Garden City.By 1979 The Astronauts were regularly appearing at free festivals and gigs in London organised by a hippy collective known as Fuck Off Records and from these began a close friendship with London punk bands Zounds and the Mob.
