Welcome to my Astro-Man archive

This site is meant to be a visual archive of every variation of every Man... or Astro-Man? 7" single ever released. Most of what you'll see here comes from my personal collection. As information pours in I will post it, so please comment if you think you have something to add. I have no intention of posting MP3s here. I'm sure you can find the music elsewhere. This is just an attempt to collect information about the band's prolific creation of singles into one spot. If you can get past the fact that I rarely clean my scanner, I think you'll enjoy what you find here.

Use the Table of Contents on the sidebar if you are looking for details on a specific 7".

The Various Boss Sounds from beyond the Far Reaches... and Then Some!

The Various Boss Sounds from beyond the Far Reaches... and Then Some! was a split 7" EP between Huevos Rancheros and Man or Astro-man?. Each band contributed two songs. It was released in 1994 on Get Hip Records (GH-167). The picture sleeve was printed on thick cardstock that was folded in the middle. The inside sleeve featured an advertisement for other releases put out by the same record label. Here is the inside of the picture sleeve:

It was released on two colors of vinyl: opaque black and clear. The clear vinyl version was not purely clear and can sometimes appear to be bluish or greenish in color. That being said, it's really just clear.

Here are both variations of the vinyl:

With the clear version, there was a pink sticker on the outer plastic sleeve indicating that the record was on color vinyl. It looked like this:

  2. Brilliant effort matey, keep it up!
    I shall have a rummage through my collection and if there's any variations I find I will be sure to shout.
    In the mean time, well played, this is interesting reading.

  3. The black vinyl copy I have is surly translucent black not opaque!
