The Lie Detectors - They Came From Outer Space
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 ( https://theliedetectors.bandcamp.com/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..... http://theliedetectors.bandcamp.com/album/monster-munch
They aren't around anymore though Mikel Clelland and Tam Burger are still together with surf punkers The Lemonaids : https://thelemonaids.bandcamp.com/album/back-to-the-beach
With the intention of destroying the human race, They Came From Outer Space......
