Captain Dick Strange here with some Atom ‘Strange happenings’!
It’s been a few months since you all last heard from the Strange camp, but just when you thought they may have disappeared into the unknown, the Arecibo Radio Telescope in Puerto Rico received this startling transmission from deep space!
“People of Earth!!!”
In November of 2010, there were rumblings that Hi-Fi Sci-Fi rock band ATOM STRANGE may have played their final show at the sold out Ace Of Clubs for their annual Halloween extravaganza. Forsooth! This was not to be! Actually, Atom Strange was recording new material at Threshold Studios just getting used to the gravity on earth again and recorded the basic tracks for 5 new songs and an acoustic version of an old favorite, with engineer extraordinaire Joe Hogan at the mixing desk. Matt Volpe was the bass player for the sessions and now remains with the band full time! So far these tracks are sounding great and will eventually be released as part of “The Lost Cosmonaut” CD, but not until they write and record a few more tunes to fill out the release.
In February ATOM STRANGE found their new skinsman in Vinnie Larocca! Vinnie hails from a planet called New Jersey just like Matt Volpe and just south of the Saturn Delta! The band has been hard at work tightening up their material and working on new songs too. I am pleased to report that things are going very smoothly and the band will be returning to the stage this coming May in NYC (earth)!
