Alien of Fortune grew out of The Aliens early collaborative efforts in 1983.

At first called Cursed Net the collaboration was stalled until !arado" for#ed a few years later then rena#ed Assylu# $see the #ys%ace %ages in %rocess&. The Alien who obviously had no ability to %lay anything wrote and recorded a few songs with no vocals. This recording is now lost since The Alien recorded over it to record the first Alien of Fortune albu# e%yno#ously titled. This albu# was recorded in one day in early su##er '83 and contained eight songs. The first song on the albu# (The )li#e *ave + was the first song with lyrics The Alien ever wrote. ,t was intended to be (a dis on all the fuc-ing %un-s and new wavers + The Alien had recently witnessed growing in %o%ularity in .unior high school $he was about to begin his first year in high school at the ti#e of recording&. ,n an ironic twist The Alien actually beca#e a %un- and arguably a new waver during his senior year.
