Andy Human & the Reptoids: Andy Human & the Reptoids (Vinyl LP)
Vinyl LP pressing. In an era when artists do little more than tweak their influences, Andy Human and the Reptoids take the past, hint at the future, and turn it all into the now. With punk energy, a new wave sense of economy, and the tap of power pop, these guys fold in Roxy Music, Devo, early Eno and Pere Ubu, while making sounds that are very much their own. Andy Human and the Reptoids' debut contains 11 songs, each one a sonic worm that will burrow into your brain and turn you into a Reptoid-humming zombie. Play side one forever, that's OK; when it is worn out, you have side two to obsess over. Or keep flipping the thing over until you get carpel tunnel syndrome. Whatever you do, you will listen to this. This isn't a record that gets lost in the stacks. It is one you wear out. Andy Human is Andy Jordan. You know him from The Cuts, Time Flys, Buzzer, and Lenz (also Razz, Brain Glaze and Factrix). He is one of the best Bay Area rock 'n' roll songwriters around and an ace on guitar and keyboards. The Reptoids are Cripe Jergensen, Beast Man and Ra Diehl. They've been doing time in Drunk Horse, Sir Lord Von Raven, Girls and Land.
