Synopsis

Amazon.com
Ex-Limbomaniac, M.I.R.V. (that's his name, folks) does the Snoop Doggy Dogg thing by interspersing tunes with low-life vignettes and narrative. The wacked-out, well-executed songs range from the Morricone-meets-Dick Dale on, "On the Prowl" and "Surfin' Soviet" to such low-grade Zappa-esque routines as, "Jumpin' Bones" and "Jerky Beef." Fans of Ween will also be amused. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Easily one of the most creative bands on the planet!
01/11/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Cosmodrome establishes MIRV's place as a one of a kind band beyond true description. Creative storytelling, great tunes and vignettes and the best darn cover version of "Cantina" from Star Wars you will ever hear. This site should carry their second CD "Feeding Time On Monkey Island" which is a little more rock driven. Cosmodrome is a concept album with a sense of humor about itself. It actually succeeds in telling a powerful story on the importance of individuality while not taking itself too seriously like other "concept" albums. By the way, they rock live!"
These guys are great

"The album doesn't quite do justice to how cool they are live, but it's worth the price. They're like Primus with some funky tricks."
