|Astrosurf was the brainchild of Frank Haney, a Bloomington musician who had previously recorded under the name Frank Haney and the Farmers. This record has a distinct surf flavor a la Beach Boys and Jan & Dean, and the band makes fun of its non-beach location with the album title, but should not be confused with the surf guitar instrumental guitar sound. The album was recorded and released by Ribbon Rail, a prominent Bloomington studio and label in the 1980’s which has several releases to its credit. Bassist Neil Sharrow also played in the Qax Pistols, and is the son of noted classical musician and Indiana University professor Leonard Sharrow. Lisa Germano adds backing vocals to the album.
