Landing in an open field near Cleveland, Pod automatically cloaked and began collecting data. Sphere remained in deep space. Our Earth identities would surely keep us inconspicuous as we separated and blended into the population.
After a time, we re-established contact and set about creating our very own blend of music using terrestrial instruments. Electric and acoustic guitar, bass and synthesizer formed our core sound. A little percussion was added here and there and of course some really cool singing. Since it's customary to name things on this planet, we named our band Buzz Forward and Space Boy and call our music "Space Music". We then used our imagination and added some really spacey sounds recorded during our travels to impart a cosmic flavor.
As humble intergalactic music icons, we always dedicate ourselves to being different and creating new forms of musical entertainment wherever we visit. So after traveling more than 470 light years just to visit Earth, here we are - and there you are - so stand back - brace yourself - take a deep breath - because...
All The Way From Outer Space...its...Buzz Forward and Space Boy.
