Since the release of 'Penguin Dust' in '97, Atomic Opera have been busy touring and preparing to record 'Gospel Cola' for Metal Blade; due out the end of this year. During the interim, Frank Hart has decided to release a collection of original sessions spanning from '89 to '93. Produced by Sam Taylor (Third Day, Galactic Cowboys). 'Alpha & Oranges' features original drummer Mark Poindexter accompanied by Jonathan Marshall (guitar), with bass being split between Len Sonnier (brother of original Galactic Cowboys' guitarist Dane) and Jonas Velasco, resulting in a fine aggregation of musicians who create honest and compelling music. In spite of the fact that these tracks are over five years old, they serve as a fine example of the band's development since their inception. Thanks to Metal Blade records, Atomic Opera's art finally looks set to be made available to a wider audience.
