The Megatoids were an improvisational space punk band out of Bushwick, Brooklyn, with Tom Swirly on the electronic wind instrument and processed vocals as the front man.

Short-lived and furious, the band vanished in 2010, leaving only a few concert videos and one propulsive studio album, Too Big To Fail.
