Harvey Pekar  - The Astral We mp3 album

Complete your Harvey Pekar collection.

The album opens with the sludge-y Huff Joules, a song that features parched vocals and meaty guitar riffs. Kratsas' sneering vocals and an onslaught of hard-rock riffs distinguish aggressive songs like "If-Then/Else and Truisms of Infinite Regress. Body, Our Contronym features rousing gang style vocals. The album’s other songs have a similar intensity to them. Though Frank and Kratsas never met the late comic-book writer Harvey Pekar, they decided upon the band name because it references their childhood experiences hanging out at comic book shops. Elliott and I spent most of our adolescent at a comic book store while we were discovering music, Kratsas says. When I thought of naming the band ‘Harvey Pekar,’ I was thinking of his honesty and observant nature and that aspect of his writing and, of course, the fact that he was from Cleveland. When I write lyrics, I think about how that fits into it.

“It strikes us as odd, perhaps even as totalitarian mysticism, to speak of the temporary and loosely structured whole as knowing something the individual people do not, as thinking something unthought by these individuals.”
