Short intro

The Astronauts were another group from the melodic 'Folk'-tinged end of the anarcho-punk spectrum. As, in my opinion, Punk Rock is Folk music, this is something quite natural. Long naturally curly haired Mark Astronaut, had the standard anarcho-office clerk kind of voice that was so popular with most of these awful groups but the Astronauts stood apart. The songs on side 1 went on to become side 1 of 2nd album proper,It's All Done By Mirrors. Track listing: A1 New Dixieland Blues 4:58.

For those people fortunate enough to be acquainted with the music of The Astronauts,this cassette is a rare treat indeed. Side 1 has the added bonus of having two tracks featuring the superb soprano saxophone playing of Lol Coxhill. This side consists of 6 songs recorded in a 16-track studio by various combinations of The Astronauts. They are all professional quality recordings intended for future release on vinyl. Side 2 is a bonus for those of us who have followed Mark's work over the years. Lol Coxhill the album was not what fans had expected but appealed to a different contradiction of heavy chaotic punk performances and structured melodic alternative popfolkambient songs continues to this day. Throughout 1982-1985 there were hundreds of gigs with the many anarcho punk bands of the era. All Done By Mirrors' 1983 found the Astronauts at the top of their game. the astronauts-problemsonly fools and optimists. Only Fools and Optimists. Release group by The Astronauts.
