Tales From Planet 9 - Cobra Fantastic's first EP !

Who would have guessed that the baddest, hippest, funkiest players in all of Paris were actually members of an alien race bent on world domination? After years of honing their skills, writing sick tunes, and blending (almost) perfectly with the human population, the intrepid band of funkateers known as Cobra Fantastic are reunited at last, and Planet Earth will never be the same again.

But this Zappa-meets-P-Funk-meets-Sun-Ra monster robot groove machine needs your help! Stranded far from their home planet 9, these fearless funkateers need real Earth currency to complete their secret weapon : their new EP, "Tales From Planet 9"!

Contribute to their cause and help funkabopulate planet Earth! Exchange your dollars or euros or yen for intergalactic grooves! Special gifts! T-shirts! Hats! And more!!!

Act now! Before it's too late! Your planet's intergalactic funkitude hangs in the balance...

Meet the musicians : 

Big Daddy Fantastic (aka David Garlitz; guitar & vocals) - originally implanted into the human population on the East Coast of the United States, Big Daddy made his way to the City of Lights via stints in Philadelphia, PA, and Havana, Cuba, learning all he could along the way about the multiplicities of human rhythmic tendencies.

AliSunshine Fantastic (aka Alison Young; vocals) - AliSunshine began her earthly adventures in the city of New Orleans, where she shared the stages of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and legendary venues like the Maple Leaf Bar and Tipitina’s with many an unsuspecting human musician. In addition to her duties with Cobra Fantastic, she continues her interplanetary collaborations at the helm of Alison Young & son orchestre sublime.

Saralicious Fantastic (aka Sarah-Lane Roberts; vocals) - landing close to the epicentre of the funkabopulation, in the Parisian suburb of Villiers-sur-Marne, Saralicious lost no time infiltrating the local human population. A founding member of Ma Caille and a member of the original cast of Un Ete 44, she continues her life among the human population as half of the alt-folk duo Ben & Slane.

The Fantastic Merrywoodweatherson (aka Josiah Woodson; trumpet) - after acquiring what Earthlings call “music degrees” from Oberlin and New England Conservatories, The Fantastic MWW collaborated with countless human musicians, including Beyoncé Knowles, David Sanchez, and Danilo Perez, before heeding the call from the High Command of Planet 9.

Prezident Fantastic (aka David Prez; tenor sax) - having liquefied the minds of the humans around Lyon, France, Prezident Fantastic went on to share the stage with the likes of David Liebman, Keziah Jones, and Pierre de Bethman, among others. A regular performer at many festivals around the Earth continent known as “Europe,” “David Prez” (as he is known among humans) has released three albums for Fresh Sounds New Talent and A.P.O. Records.

Matyas Fantasticus (aka Matyas Szandai; bass) - as he made his way from Budapest, where he first entered Earth’s atmosphere, to rejoin his comrades from the Planet 9, Matyas Fantasticus mastered the art of what humans would call “badass bass lines.” Having collaborated along the way with the likes of Chris Potter and Kurt Rosenwinkel, Fantasticus also maintains intergalactic relations with other extra-terrestrial musicians such as Archie Shepp.

Karlos El Fantástico (aka Karl Jannuska; drums) - the backbone of the Cobra Fantastic rhythm section was assimilated into the human population in the province of Manitoba, Canada. Arriving in Paris by way of Montreal, New Orleans, and Brooklyn, Karlos’ serpentine grooves continue to entice human musicians - he remains active in over a dozen groups and collaborations around the galaxy, including some with Lionel Loueke, Brad Mehldau, and his own groups Midseason and The Watershed.


Waar dient de collecte voor

Seriously, folks...

Making a record costs money, no matter what galaxy you're from or what superhuman powers of funkabopulation you posess. 

Your contributions will help cover the costs of the recording studio, the mixing and mastering process, the musicians (yeah, they get paid too!), and some of the costs of promoting the EP once it's released.
