Newest output from the Sputnik2 camp (this time identified as Sci-Fi Superstars) is the Space Age Junkie album. Sci-Fi Superstars is the name of ex-Sigue Sigue Sputnik singer Martin Degville's new band.

The album consists of 8 tracks and was originally planned as a cd-r release, but due to technical problems it ended up as a digital download including cover images. The songs were originally intended for the Propeth of Freak album but I guess they never made it all the way.

The songs are in the same vibe as found on the 2008 albums Sputnik 2....The Future and G.O.D (guns oil drugs). This means that some of them are pretty cool and some of them are more so-so. It is absolutely interesting for the Sputnik fan to listen to the album, while it may not be quite consistent enough for the casual listener. It is like listening to a work in progress when you combine the 3 albums and hopefully the Propeth of Freak will see the light of day soon! I think there is reason to believe that the album will be really good judging from the best of the material on the (so far) 3 demos and outtakes albums.

Best track you say? Hmmm... Sputnik2 Express is cool with it's Jayne Mansfield like guitar riff. I love it! :) Actually most of the songs are enjoyable for various reasons. Only Supa Computa is a bit annoying due to the repetitive Kraftwerk voice fx. The song Thank You Baby - For Lovin' Me is also found on the Sputnik 2....The Future album.

You can buy the album at Sputnik2.com
