Man Or Astro-Man? - Disintegrate

There's a name a few readers wouldn't have thought they'd hear again. MOAM? did prolific business in the mid to late 90s with their sci-fi themed surf-rock (primarily) instrumentals, extraterrestrial backstory and onstage tesla coils. Star Crunch, Birdstuff and Coco reformed in 2010 and the single from their first album in twelve years Defcon 5...4...3...2...1, out May 21st in America, finds them not quite in Dick Dale-goes-Def Con 1 mode but instead exploring the range around spaced out, pulsatingly fuzzy almost new wave pushing on in a way that'd shame many younger, hungrier bands.
