Overview

When Terry Brown (producer of RUSH, Max Webster, Ian Thomas) let three young musicians loose in his studio during off hours it was the starting point of one of music history's most unique and interesting adventures.

Calling themselves, Klaatu — after the peace emissary in the 1951 movie The Day the Earth Stood Still — they wrote, recorded, and inventively engineered an album that was so creative it was compared to bands such as Pink Floyd, ELO, and The Beatles.

But when worldwide-hysteria set in that they were The Beatles reunited under a secret identity — the young, publicity-shy musicians found their once sunny future overshadowed by lingering storm clouds.

Klaatu's music is continually being discovered and rediscovered by today's audiences — including fans of 50 Cent's G-Unit through their sampling of Dr. Marvello in their song, Lay You Down, and The Carpenter's cover version of Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft.
