Ponytail-Do Whatever You Want All the Time (2011)

01 Easy Peasy by deef deeferson

Ancient Aliens, for those who haven't watched the history channel series, is a theory put forth by a select few in the scientific community that states that we(the planet) have been visited before by an ancient race or races not of this planet. It is said that these "aliens" came down and introduced the human population to mathematics, various forms of art, various forms of architecture and many other means of cultural and intellect expanding areas. Basically it's said we didnt learn any of this alone, hell we might have not even contributed up to that point.

So in short, aliens came down, shot our brains full of abstract and scientific thought. Byproducts of this would have been advancements in all sorts of areas including most likely religion. We interpreted what we learned from these beings and translated it through our still developing cultures to come to what we know as common society.

Now taking root in this theory i firmly believe that some of these thoguht provoking aliens are still here, and we have seen em. or at least i believe i have seen em or at least for the purpose of this review HEARD THEM!

a list of possible musical aliens:
Frank Zappa
Tim Buckley
Joe Meek
Bruce Haack
All 4 members of Kraftwerk
Richard D. James
EyE from the Boredoms
This Heat
Kool Keith
Lil B
Ariel Pink
(feel free to disagree with me or add some to the list i may have left off)

Which brings me to my final point and my review:
Even though they reside in Baltimore i truly believe the members of Ponytail are direct decendents or long living ancient aliens from either the Incan or Mayan "education" and have firmly grabbed the controls of their spaceship and crash landed on the East Coast and well folks they formed a band because their spaceship crashed and the parts are too damn expensive to make the trip back home, so they are bored, and they decided to make a few records, including this one, possibly their finest yet.

Four aliens collective Boredoms equals another simple earthling's pleasure
and the first band made up entirely of Ancient Aliens.
