Alien Space Kitchen (Albuquerque)
Alien Space Kitchen (“A.S.K”) is a garage space rock band currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The band started as a duo when songwriter and guitaristDru Vaughter recruited Noelle to play drums and assist with vocals on a new recording project. The result was their award-winning debut album “Just ASK.” Although the two of them were happy with their progress, what they truly desired was a power-trio configuration. They believed that with the addition of bass, the songs could bask in their full garage-rock glory. In 2013 good fortune shone upon A.S.K. when L.A. legend Mess Messal came out of retirement to join the band. Mess has toured the world with critically acclaimed bands Flies on Fire, VOMF, and Vitamade. When asked why he decided to get back in the game, most of the time he says it is because of the songs. Sometimes he says it was something in the water. The rest of the band doesn’t care why, they’re just glad he did.
The band member’s influences include X, The 13th Floor Elevators, The Music Machine, WITCH, The Replacements, Kid Congo, Ohio Players, and The Kinks, to name a very few. The band is also influenced by outer space. Here’s what’s known about the individual members and alien abductions: Dru may have been abducted but has no recollections; Noelle has never been abducted and knows why; Mess claims that he has been an abductee and knows exactly why, and also claims that he has abducted a few himself. The triangulation of these differing experiences translates in musical terms like a time-bomb of the future. Check it out or check yourself in.
