Radar Men From The Moon biography
Named after an old sci-fi movie RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON is an instrumental rock band from the Netherlands. The three members are all hailing from the former stoner rock project 'Boners Inc.' Based on a grooving rhythm section and cosmic guitars they are now exploring the unknown boundaries of space rock alongside of their fellow countrymen 35007 and Mother-Unit. 'Intergalactic Dada & Space Trombones' (2011) represents the debut album, consisting of five songs best described as hypnotic space/post/stoner rock music.

Review by Utnapishtim

4 stars Are you coming back at home after a distressing day at work? Your girlfriend has closed the phone right now remembering you that today is her best friend birthday and they are waiting for you under your home? Have you really decided to go out for a walk in the interstellar space, but you have lent your own spacecraft to your best friend? No matters. Put in your Dutch mixer many years of listening of Pink Floyd, a lot of Hawkwind, a little bit of Hypnose 69, My Sleeping Karma, mix all with the stoner rock and a 52's Sci-fi film (the film of which they taken the name) and here you are your ticket to the universe: INTERGALACTIC DADA AND SPACES TROMBONES.

Personally I can't listen to stoner rock. After few minutes my ears stop capturing sounds, and then I must turn off the music. But here there is something of magnetic, incredibly attractive. Starting with the unbelievable cover (that I'd like to paint on the wall of my study), created by the guitarist Glenn Peeters, you can lose yourself in a sky inhabited by Fish, fixing some cow while your're thinking to Pink Floyd. The Dutch trio offers about 45 minutes (more or less) of a real megalithic trip, dressing up Heavy / Psych / Stoner clothes, and do it with an hypnotic aptitude that glues your ears on your headphones (if you like to listen to the music in this way). But the real show may you have listening to it very loud! Music is based on guitar riffs with many distorted solos very psychedelic and bass lines persistent and precise. There are an infinity of sound that seems really come from space.You can clearly feel in it Pink Floyd ideas (like the way to open and to close the album, its cover, the five piece choice?) in modern execution key, on which melts Hawkwind plots, on a space background with some vocal part of the original film. The tracks are no boring or expected, but they are a mix of a lot of excellent ideas very good assembled.

From the opening track "Space Colonist" it alternates strong guitar riff to good bass lines (Jan-Titus Verkuijlen), these pleasantly in evidence. All is followed well by drummer Tony Lathouwers, which also deals with synths. You can appreciate many Krautrock touches in song like "The Wire", but in general into the entire album. One of my favorite songs is "Intergalactic Dada And Spaces Trombones" with an opening psychedelic guitar intro and some intelligent ideas marked by their musical style. The other that I prefer Is "The People Who Stay On The Earth Will Explode" I love its beautiful bass line and the entire song naturally. With "Moonjuice" ends the album, offering its last spacey skills and a closure that seems to recall some old spot with radio disturbance searching for a new station.

This album appears as a bolt from blue when an indie band decided to auto-produce their album and give us this good work. A trip to somewhere in vicinity of Jupiter or beyond the asteroid belt, or maybe closer to us, maybe behind the moon.

4 Stars - Better to leave occasionally

Review by Utnapishtim

3 stars A narrator of '50s introduces the first song of this second album's Radar Men From The Moon. (like their debut album). After the first experience with INTERGALACTIC DADA & SPACES TROMBONES, I expected another spectacular album more original than first. Maybe this is the ambition of every listeners who expects the best to feed ours ear, and even the mind.

These three intelligent Dutch musicians, have used original ideas to propose their music. The combination of psychedelic atmospheres and "old voice" makes Floydian impressions that remain in mind. Although I don't like stoner approach I must say they've done a good combination in their music with many Space Rock moments in HAWKWIND's style. Sometimes it remind me RUSSIAN CIRCLES, in rare post Rock passages.

Although the instrumental band proposed original and good debut album, this one is not fantastic than first. The ideas are repeated and music is created with "same old poison" used in the first album, although I think if this was first album, it could be considerate almost good. The problem is that they have already offered the same "dish" in 2011, and probably to update the mený is the better thing.

This album is not the best thing I ever heard, but anyhow is decent.

3 Stars
