Man or Astro-Man?

Where band name Man or Astro-man comes from - The Human Vapor film posterThink of a band that is a crossing of The Shadows and The Sex Pistols: then you come close to Man or Astro-Man? (that question mark goes with the name).

The surf rockers from Auburn, Alabama, who play mainly instrumental songs, saw a poster for the Japanese science-fiction film The Human Vapor from 1960 (original title: Gasu Ningen Dai Ichigo). In the lower-left corner the rhetorical question is aksed 'Is He Man or Astro-Man?' And now we know where that led to.
