I don’t feature many instrumentals but this one reminds me of the great Telstar. Laika and The Cosmonauts formed in 1987 and was a working band until 2008. The band was named after Laika, a Soviet space dog that died on board Sputnik 2 in 1957. This song came out in 1994 on the Instruments of Terror album…without a hint of the 90s….80s, or 70s for that matter.
They are a Finnish band that take surf rock, ‘60s spy movie music and other twangy influences and give them a spacey feeling.
The song on the album is listed as Psyko (Themes From “Psycho” And “Vertigo”) and they give you an early 60s feel. It seems they take Telstar as a base and go from there.
Musicians who like this band? Del Rey, Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench from the Heartbreakers, and Dick Dale just to name a few.
They released 6 studio albums, 2 compilation albums, and a live album. If you have some time look them up on youtube.
No Lyrics…just sit back and dig the groovy music
