In 1977 mankind launched Voyager spacecrafts. Each one carried a golden record with sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth.
However, a scientist of that project who didn’t agree very much with that music selection, decided to make a new golden record including what he thought it was the best music on planet Earth: Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Queen, Rush, AC/DC, Aerosmith, UFO, Rainbow, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Alice Cooper… And he sent it in one of the spacecrafts.
A while after that, a group of aliens from Incógnita planet found this record and decided to come directly to planet Earth to find out more about the thing human beings call “music”. As soon as they arrived, music stunned them so much that they decided to stay and create their own rock band. Now they live with a young graphic artist who’s helping them to get used to their new planet. In exchange, he will use the alien’s crazy behavior as inspiration for his comics.
PS: In order to better adapt themselves to Earth, ALIEN ROCKIN’ EXPLOSION did take human bodies, except Cat, who’s trapped on a feline body, and Flantur, the aliens’ spacecraft changed into a huge, 4-eyed elephant… It’s a long story.
VAN HALIEN (Guitar & Backing vocals)
He is spontaneous, carefree, passionate, naive, forgetful and above all cheerful.
His full new body shudders with the music he loves. He has received the full impact of Heavy Metal.
His arrival on the Earth is the most exciting experience of his whole existence. Everything surprises him. Everything is exciting. He is willing to try, to taste, to feel, to experiment, to make mistakes and, especially, to play his guitar very, very loud.
He left Incognita fleeing from a dull life, intrigued by what humans call music. And he is determined to live the experience with as much intensity as possible… Even if it hurts, like when he tattooed his skin.
He loves coffee and those little crunchy things called almonds. He despises spiders and staring at anything in pink color provokes him headache.
