The Astronauts: Up Front And Sideways (Tape) Heroes of mine, I think it was "All Done By Mirrors", LP that first hit me in the head like a freight train, never been the same since, they came out and about and really got noticed at the real punk time, when The Mob, Crass, The Subhumans,the anarchist set were doing their thing for the good of all. Well their here on the freebie tape so make up your own minds. There was so much stuff that Mark Astronaut said I could use, and to pick a track was crazy, just so much good stuff. Anyway on Up Front you get their last 7" "Constitution", and the B-side "Please Don’t Come Around", which are incredible , if you like punk with thought provoking lyrics and music with something to say, check them out, they've always had a great folk edge, but the lyrics sold me long, long ago, sheep poetry in places. "Is The Revolution Coming", well what a song! I could go on forever about this band, all I hope is that they do, check out the latest album and open your mind , gigs, chats, the lot, contact, Mark, 29 Westfield, Welwyn Garden City, Herts, AL7 1QZ. or the tapes out on Dizzy Positivity Recordings, P.O.
