ASTROGLIDES, THE: Channel Surfing with the Astroglides: CD

Jul 09, 2007

Joe Meek-styled instrumental music inspired in large part by Israeli television, which i can only assume entitles this record to its own genre name and section at record stores. What do you think they should change their name to, though: “Glides... or Astroglides?” or “Mensch... or Astromensch?” BEST SONG: “The Man with the Golden Reverb” BEST SONG TITLE: “Crusin’ Down Menahem Begin Blvd” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: The cover art features three television sets, three images of Saturn, and a topless cheerleader—which, quite frankly, should be prerequisite ingredients for all album cover art from this day forward.
