Here Are They Now : Roads To Space Travel

So I'm back early. Roads To Space Travel, from Baltimore, were as good a band as any I can remember in the mid-to-late nineties...they played Baltimore-y music (not to be confused with Baltimora music like "Tarzan Boy"). Baltimore-y music, it seemed to me at the time, was like DCish music-- angular, carefully calculated, stoic and cerebral-- only somehow weirder.

Beg for a reissue!

Most indie rockers worth their salt would probably have done a better job keeping up with RTST's distinguished alums-- I, however, am not worth my salt, which is depressing, considering how little my salt is actually worth.

Turns out vocalist/bassist Roman Kubler is in the Oranges Band, and did some time in the popular rock outfit known as Spoon.

Buy it!

Tim Baier and Greg Preston play in the very excellent Slow Jets.

Buy it!

And Adam Cooke plays in the Translucents, about whom I can find very little, except to say that they seem to be playing shows. So I gots nothing to offer you in the way of listening there. Instead, a little Spoonage, albeit a track not featuring Kubler. Just cuz.
Spoon - Sister Jack
Buy it!
