Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet

#6 in my “Bands/Artists from the 90s Whom I Miss Most”

Known widely for their theme (“Having an Average Weekend”) and incidental music for the Kids in the Hall show, SMOASP made three of the best – maybe the best ever — albums of surf-rock. And I’m counting the Ventures, Dick Dale, and the Mermen in that statement.

I think one member’s death undid any chances of a reunion following their mid-nineties breakup.

Thanks, Canada. We should have traded Niel Young back to you for these guys in 1990.
