Review for "The Laundronauts Come Clean" (Spincycle Records) by Douglas Mackenzie:
"Imagine, if you will, standing on a black background, three men in spotless white suits, eyes round and black in white-rimmed sunglasses, faces forbiddingly expressionless like those of soldiers or gangsters. These are the Laundronauts. The music is garage-rock, full of fuzzy guitars, ‘50s style backup vocals and dirty bass. It is raucous but focused, especially on those instrumental surf-rock tracks that showcases the band’s musical presence, making sure you know they can rock out even without their chosen lyrical theme, which is laundry.
Yup, laundry. Their songs are about the lonely spin cycle of love, the charms of lovely Launder-Annette and trying to keep clean in such a dirty world. With some bands of this ilk, things get gimmicky, but listening to the album, it’s easy to just enjoy the rock ‘n’ roll and have the occasional chuckle at the lyrics. Really, they’re like a giant washing machine of kickassery whomping and rattling around the stage, and one wouldn’t hesitate to witness their fury live!"
Favorite Music/Influences (list some bands, musicians, genres, etc.):
THE LAUNDRONAUTS is a 100% DIY independent rock'n'roll band!!! As such, we appreciate honest music! That is, music that comes from the gut - it could be angry, funny, sad, or maybe it just makes you want to dance, but it has to be HONEST!
THE LAUNDRONAUTS are calling "bullshit!!" on pretentious assholes in the music world! And not only the typical assholes in the commercial music industry that we all hate, but also these humorless niche/elitist 'hipper-than-thou' types who bitch and moan yet contribute nothing; instead of complaining, pick up a guitar and make the music you want to hear!
HERE IS A LIST OF A FEW OF OUR HEROES: Sonics, Wailers, Link Wray, Bunker Hill, Seeds, Crimson Shadows, Tree Stumps, Cuby and the Blizzards, King Khan, Painted Ship, Nomeansno, Tranzmitors, Evaporators, Mighty Caesars, Nips, Woolly Bandits, Stooges, Clash, Black Flag, Fats Waller, Kinks, Undertones, Richard Berry, Gruesomes, Fiends, Miracle Workers, Love Me Nots, Deja Voodoo, Mummies.
