Believe me, there are many MUCH stranger albums (i.e., the first eight or so albums by The Residents). ;)

Then again, Captain Lockheed and The Starfighters is great fun. Bob Calvert was a real character.....and a bit
difficult to deal with at times (see the Hawkwind biographies by Ian Abrahams and Carol Clerk).

Members of Hawkwind and Vivian Stanshall......what's not to like? ;D

When you edit a post that contains a link to a video, that link is automatically erased on saving.

This is a well-known bug from this forum's interface that has never been properly addressed it seems... :(

No, it was there before I edited. The video initially showed up after I posted. Weird.

I have this CD somewhere here (As Shivering knows). :)

Also, I saw Monster Magnet a few months ago. They opened with N.O.D. Space. That made me happy.
