Springman Records - Artists: THE PHENOMENAUTS (687 words)
Conceived in the amazing year 2000, The Phenomenauts gained early recognition as the east bay's "craftiest and bravest band" (East Bay Express) for their now infamous commando-style performances in which they set up in front of large music venues and perform rollicking sets for unsuspecting crowds.
The Phenomenauts also gained recognition from their peers with shout-outs on stage from NoFx's lead singer Fat Mike as "one of the best bands on tour." Local Oakland heroes Green Day are long time fans and have been spotted helping to sell the band's merchandise after shows.
Since 2005, The Phenomenauts have taken to life on the road in their brand new P.S.S. Titan Space-Ship (tour-bus) completing national tours with The Aquabats, River City Rebels, Big D And The Kids Table, and The Eyeliners.

You danced to the new songs and all the Phenoma-gadgets worked, and since you brought all of your friends, you were the toast of the planet.
I think the Phenomenauts have turned to the dark side of the force because there is nothing left to learn from being good.
