Alien Crew has been officially
described as “found object art.”
They first recorded in 1985 and continue to perform and record to this day. They
have offered their music online in one form or another since 1990.
The “band” formed in the general vicinity of San Francisco, CA, and continue to
have representation in the area, though active members are spread across the
globe. They have had many lineups over the years, with only one permanent
member, but have always kept all of their members secret - rumored to protect
them from their record company contracts.
As a policy, their music has always been free to record, copy, play, download,
distribute, re-record, shit-on, or just listen to. They have repeatedly
reaffirmed their vow to create and perform “for free” into perpetuity, and as a
unit remain profit and earning free to this day. This is to protect the
members from lawyers and copyright owners, but more importantly, it is to ensure
the freedom of the creative process.
"Art and money is like oil and
water." - Alien Crew
