Highly anticipated debut from incredible instrumental band combining the shred of Dick Dale and the guitar noise of My Bloody Valentine, with the tone of Hank Marvin of The Shadows. Throw in influences like the Ventures and Australia's the Atlantics, and you'll get their interstellarsurf-instro sound. 15 tracks, including 'Third Star To The Left', 'Red Sunrise' and 'Solaris Stomp'. 1998 Musick Recordings.

"'Interstellar Stomp' is the debut record by a band that has to be considered as one of the best surf/instrumental bands ever. This CD kicked my behind from start to finish- wonderful songwriting, super production and out-of-this-world guitar playing. Fast, melodic and brutal, that's how the guitarist from the Space Cossacks plays, and together with 3 other great musicians, take surf music to a new dimension- it just ROCKS! Favorite songs include, "Third Star to the Left", "Space Victory Theme", "Mir Rescue" and the unbelievable "Transatlantic Orbit". Get this NOW!!"
The Space Cossacks RULE!

"This instro/surf disc is the wave of the future! Now that "Swing" has become "popular" (again) who is to reason why the "next big thing" won't be instro/surf music! Along with Jon and the Nightriders (LA), Los Straightjackets (Nashville), Satan's Pilgrims (Seattle), the Mermen (SF) and numerous other bands, from all over the world, the future of rock and roll is in fine hands!"
From Croatia & Beyond the Stars!

"I love sci-fi; and these days, I love SURFING music! So THE SPACE COSSACKS were clearly a band made for me! Led by Ivan Pongracic, one of the most talented & friendly guitarists I've run across, they blaze a trail of instrumental POWER & EXCITEMENT that's balanced only by their equal love for mood & melody. Of the many, MANY instro bands I've heard in the last 5 years, I rank these guys behind ONLY Los Straitjackets-- and it's a close call! My faves here include "Third Star To The Left", "Red Sunrise", "Neutron Sabre", "The Cossack", "Transatlantic Orbit" (yeah, mostly the FAST ones) and "Moroccan Adventures" (one of the SLOWER ones). This album didn't take long to grow on me, and if I had any disappointment at all, it was only because I was hoping for more tunes from their limited-edition (400) cassette, ORBITAL PLANETARY STRATEGIC COMMAND, to show up here. (Only "Third Star", re-recorded, did; different versions of "Red Sunrise" & "Neutron Sabre" had also turned up earlier on 2 separate vinyl EPs.) For more from these guys, I highly recommend the 7" EPs THE PENETRATORS MEET THE SPACE COSSACKS ("Shark Attack"), THE SPACE COSSACKS / THE FATHOMS ("Space Probe"), FROM THE SHADOWS OF THE EVIL EMPIRE ("Metsakukkia") and the comp CDs AN EVENING IN NIVRAM: THE MUSIC OF THE SHADOWS ("The Savage" & "The Lute Player"), HOT RODS TO HELL, VOLUME II (the BEST recording of "Squad Car" I've ever heard!), SURFIN' SENORITA ("Bittersweet Samba"), and SWINGIN' CREEPERS! A TRIBUTE TO THE VENTURES ("Journey To the Stars" & "Moon Child"). And of course, their 2nd full-length CD, TSAR WARS, which was even better than their 1st!"
