The Other Planets are from New Orleans. The band is a sextet and employs the use of bass saxophone, electric bass, drumset, guiar, piano, samplers, all manner of percussion instruments, and singing through megaphones and what not. We play original music, and this is our first CD release. It has been praised by critics in New Orleans as being one of the best albums to be released in the city in recent years. The band plays all over the state. Our influences would have to be Zappa, Beefheart, Sun Ra, Anthony Braxton, Squarepusher, Ween, others.
