Bad Astronaut


(Joey Cape, Lagwagon, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, Ataris, Nerf Herder, Swingin' Utters)

Honest Don's 31

Released on February 6, 2001



Origin: From a spaceport known as Santa Barbara, Bad Astronaut formed early in the 21st century around the year 2000. The threesome trace back their interstellar friendship to the third grade, probably where they first began plotting out their course in the musical universe. All of this will be become clear with the arrival of Bad Astronaut's debut Crewmembers: At the vocal helm we have the dashing Joey Cape. Joey has spent time on other vessels: piloting Fat Wreck Chords flagship Lagwagon, and serving as a deck officer with Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Marko 72 plays the galactic thunderbroom, or as Earthlings know it, the bass. Much like the mercenary smuggler Han Solo, Marko has offered his services to many throughout the indie-rock galaxy, spending time aboard Nerfherder and the Swingin' Utters. Derrick Plourde, who until recently was lost in a parallel universe, operated the drums for Lagwagon on their first three missions: Duh, Trashed, and Hoss.

Bad Astronaut is a really great band. For those unfamiliar with them it's a side project fronted by Lagwagon's Joey Cape. This is their first album. It's kinda short, but really good. the best songs on it are Greg's Estate, Logan's Run, Grey Suits, and Unlucky Stuntman. I would recommend buying this immediately. It's a shame they're no longer a band.

I wish I could give this a six. Not as good as Houston, but still pretty awesome!! Joey Cape is a genius. Best tracks are Greg's Estate, Quiet, 500 Miles, and Only Good for a ..., even though all the tracks are good. If you like Lagwagon, this is a must buy (If you already own Houston we have a drinking problem).

Bad Astronaut is an amazing band. I heard anecdote and 500 miles and decided to get it, overall the cd is damn good, but it gets a little boring toward the end. All good songs tho i'd say if you like lagwagon's cd Blaze for most of the softer songs then definately pick this up!

this is a really good album. i finally picked it up after having houston for over a year, which quickly became one of my favorite records of all time. this album is more punk sounding that houston is, which is much more experimental. the songs here remind me of some of the stuff on blaze. i think houston is a better album overall, but this is definitely awesome as well.

This is a solid album with music ranging from slow intelligent rock (i.e. Jets to Brazil, Coldplay) to straight rock and roll(i.e. Foo Fighters), all tossed in with Joey Cape's melodic vocals. There is everything from piano to synth (more piano than synth). Dont expect Lagwagon cause youre not gonna fuckin get, ok. So this album is good, but I personally think Joey's vocals sound better with raging power punk guitars behind it. But it sounds damn good backed by a piano as well. Any fan of Joey' vocals will enjoy this album. The song "only good for a..." is excellent. 3 outta 5.

Hard to describe this album. Don't go thiking this is some blistering fast punk rock super band. This is definetly Joey Cape's attempt at some more sophisticated music. Sounds like early radiohead and some foo fighters and some jawbreaker with a dash of lagwagon mostly cause of the vocals. Good side project. Other good side projects people should listen to are Pinhead Gunpowder, Frustrators,samhain,transplants, Lars Frederiksen and the bastards, me first and the gimme gimmes (joey cape is in that one too), box car racer, there's a lot more those are just the one's i could think of right now. Good album not great. Get Houston we have a drinking problem instead.

This cd is about as interesting as it's good. It sorta sounds like a mix between Lagwagon, Foo Fighters and Radiohead. Really original stuff....some people could have troubles with getting used to all the strange riffs and punctured rythms, but to me it all sounds great. It rocks all the way from track 1 to might wanna download a few songs before you buy it tho.

lagwagon....definitely not. however, this cd is f***in great. joey cape definately brought out some of his best efforts on this 10 song disc. great cover of an old civil war song u might recognize too. this is definately NOT a punk rock album, but i have to say this cd is very inventive and worth buying. check it out.

Acrophobe is an incredible album, but be wary. Don't expect overly driving guitar riffs, a fast screaming voice, or even that speed of a drum beat. This is a dark, emotional album, that if listened to seriously, could easily become anyones favorite. They blended metal guitar riffs with Lag Wagon's classic sound and added a keyboard. They slowed down a bit as to allow them more room to experiment with new forms of expressing punk. They found a great original sound here and this is definitely not an album to pass up.

This is the worst cd i have ever bought. I totally regret getting it. If you like the almann brothers or dave mathews band i think you would like it though, i personally think it sucks. It sounds nothing like lagwagon, the only good song on it is gray suits.
