ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Planet Sandwich launched into orbit from Flagstaff, AZ in 2002 with cosmonauts Paul Perreault (vocals, guitar/bass), Eric Gilman (guitar/bass,vocals) and Troy Marino (drums). For a few years the trio played parties, festivals, local bars and The Orpheum Theater before recording and producing their debut CD "Planet Sandwich".
Many ask where the band got its unusual name. It's from the lyrics of the first song "Styrofoam" on the debut album. It was written years before the band assembled.

The trio expanded and learned songs by Paul's brother Peter and began recording another album focusing on these songs. Peter (guitar/vocals) produced the album known as "Peace's" featuring Planet Sandwich.
After recording Gilman left the band for Boston (the city, not the band) and the line-up changed like the weather. At one point, when Troy took a hiatus, Planet Sandwich was stripped down to a duo with the Perreault Brothers switching on guitar and drums.

Founding drummer Marino soon picked up electronic drums and things got strange.
Players gathered along the way included Frank Mulligan (bass) and Matt Miller (baritone guitar/vocals).
Eventually the bizarre yellow brick road ended.The flying monkeys went home.
Paul recruited guitarist Geoffrey Whittaker (Male Pattern Baldwin) and Planet Sandwich was once again a trio. Paul on 5-string bass, Troy on the electric "kit" and Geoffrey on guitar offered a new, unexpected sound. Driven by slapping bass and strange drum samples, the vibe didn't quite fit the 90's-style rock songs Paul had been writing. This sandwich needed more meat.
The trio grew a mustache and abducted bassist Richard May. Paul was free to play rhythm guitar and focus on singing with Whittaker stepping up with ferocious guitar leads and sweet harmonies. The sound was bigger.
Then one fateful day at a gig the electric kit failed and Marino jumped on another band's drum kit. The band broke through the stratosphere. Troy soon bought a new drum kit and Planet Sandwich never sounded more complete.

The four lads began the next LP "Yo Pluto" with producer Andrew Baker (aka DJ Soe) and added tracks recorded and edited by Paul. Another "home-grown" album made up of new and old songs with some fresh lyrics by William Blake and Mother Teresa was born. The band found a young rock scene had developed in Flagstaff and shows became more exciting with high-spirited crowds.

The band was now ready to record its third album. This time they were hands-off the production and let seasoned engineer David James at Mudshark Studios work his magic capturing full, unbridled energy. With minimal over-dubs and lots of live solos the latest album "Quiche" feels raw, yet nicely polished. Cover tunes from The Unicornicopians and former member Peter Perreault spice up the album nicely. "The Tardigrade" and "Zombies" are instant classics the band is honored to perform.

Planet Sandwich hopes to do an inter-stellar tour someday (moons of Jupiter?) but for now are happy rocking new songs, growing as a musical unit and spreading inter-dimensional love. Dig?
