The Lie Detectors - They Came From Outer Space

  Are we alone? Given the vastness of space, hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe and each of those containing billions of stars, it's not too much of a stretch to say it's quite possible that there's life out there somewhere. And if whoever might be out there ever decides to turn up in our neighbourhood one day and invade the Earth, hopefully that invasion will be against the backdrop of a pop punk soundtrack.

  Some of my favourite punk songs of all time have a sci fi theme. The Rezillos, Spizz Energi, The Dickies, The Misfits, The Lillingtons, The Riverdales and many more have successfully combined the two genres and today I bring you a band that certainly didn't shy away from writing about aliens. They even named their debut album UFO (

  The Lie Detectors were a Glasgow band who also released a second album called Monster Munch, which today's song comes from and which is also available name your price.....

  They aren't around anymore though Mikel Clelland and Tam Burger are still together with surf punkers The Lemonaids :

  With the intention of destroying the human race, They Came From Outer Space......
