It all started when...
“If it doesn’t sound kind of fucked up then someone missed something.”- Eddy Strickler, Prairie Sun Recording
At fifteen years old in sunny Southern California, Allee Fütterer, Niko Giaimo and Eddie Campbell could be found anywhere from moshing at shows, learning to spit licks in drop C (and sometimes B), all the way to local jazz festivals while learning to crush be-bop scales. Their mutual love for Rock and fucking Roll fused their vastly different personal and musical upbringings into the California sound that is The Astronots. Though they exist in the age of the laptop producer, this rock band aims to make music the old fashioned way: going to the studio and making cool ass sounds - not looking for perfection, but instead honest and unapologetic rock and roll.
The Astronots recorded their latest self titled album in April 2018 at the legendary Prairie Sun Recording studio in Cotati, CA with engineers Phil Joly-formerly of Electric Lady Studios in New York, NY. The group left the farms of Cotati after a week of recording believing to have found what they were looking for: a California sound.
