Tracker's 2009 EP „man made noise“ was the thing nobody counted on. 3 Guys trapped in their
DIY Studio by the Tyrolean mountains, created a bastard consisting of elements from desert rock,
Kraut, psychedelia and noise that was seldom heard in Austria.
The respective Mad Heads where charmed and the EP, although never officially released, was
voted best national record by fm4's (austria's leading alternative radio station) “house of pain” crew.
For a proper release of the record Sulatron's Dave Schmidt was contacted, whom the band met
on the Duna Jam Festival in Sardenia. Now his Psychedelia-Spacerock Label is the new home for
'How I became an Alien' contains some Songs from last years EP which have been reworked and
some new tracks like 'tight fit', 'blower' and 'impregnated eye'.
Tracker create soundscapes in the classic rock trio format with guitar/bass/drums/vocals, these are
only cornerstones for a much more multilayered sound. Nasty sounds from self built fuzzboxes
meet psychedelic space parts, kaossilators compete with bizarre iPhone-synths, fat desert riffs
dance with grumpy lo-fi beats and the dusty elegance of desert rock is hijacked by monotone krautbeats.
The Album was recorded in approved manner in the own studio, for the Mastering pro Martin
Scheer was commissioned.
'How I became an Alien' is released as Vinyl with 6 songs containing the CD version with 9 songs
