Live At The Johnson Space Center
After so many live performances in all sorts of dark and dingy launch pads rights across europe, the instro-surf combo from Hamburg, The Splashdowns, are finally releasing their first live album. The EP with 6 tracks recreates the sticky atmosphere of a packed cellar bar, rather than the clean antiseptic environment of a Cape Canaveral laboratory. In addition to a selection of hits from the current LP "Back To The Moon In 2022", the EP includes 2 unreleased numbers "El espia con el Rolleiflex" (The Spy with the Rolleiflex) and "Pulsar", both songs already a fixture in the bands live set. Recorded live in an old hangar the tone is raw and untamed. The EP kicks off with an unnecessarily complex introduction from Dr Habakuk Braunsteiner from ASA (Astronautic Surf Administration) explaining the core theme of the performance. limited to 300 copies.
