So Man or Astro-man? (not any of the clones, but the original lineup) got back together and recently played a limited number of dates on the East Coast...coming no closer than 3 hours to Columbia. So with surf on the brain, the pick of the week is another surf outfit, Atlantaâ€™s Mermaids. BUT, itâ€™s not really a surf rock outfit like Man or Astro-man? or Los Straightjackets.
Instead, Mermaids are more surf pop like the Beach Boys. So expect a whole lot of Beach Boys style vocal harmonies, and well, more pop than rock (with punk and indie influences mixed in). Oh and reverb...lots of reverb. Donâ€™t miss it!
