The SAUCERIANS' "AND THE THREE MEN" is far-out. Saucerians are an instrumental trio: guitarist John Voskamp (Peglegasus), drummer Rhett Hubertus (Rhett and Dean, Crisis Hotlines), and organist Nathan Brown (Adam Green, Grand Mal). The organ functions both as the band's low end as a melodic tool, providing wandering patterns over percolating bass, often trading off melody lines with the guitar, while the one backs the other up. The guitar crunches and twangs while laying out the clear themes to many of the album's songs. The drumming tastefully holds it all together, and the songs glide freely through an assortment of beats and bombastic fills.
In the tradition of composers such as Lalo Shiffron and Dick Hyman, the band's sound is evocative of late 1950's TV shows about crime and espionage . They also generate fuzzed out driving rock and roll that brings to mind motorik pioneers Can and Neu. The songs are angular and lean, and often drift into expansive psychedelia. SAUCERIANS play road music for the freeways of Mars.
