Hawkwind - In Search of Space
Hawkwind was an English space rock band, once touting a pre-Motorhead Lemmy Kilmeister on bass and vocals (in fact, the name Motorhead was taken from the Hawkwind song, Motorhead, the last song Lemmy wrote with Hawkwind). The music is spacey, pre-punk, rock jams with lots of theremin, synthesizers, and sound effects throughout. Lyrics about space travel, quantum physics and (my favorite) getting doped. If you're a fan of Lemmy, get this record. If you're a fan of synthesizers, get this record. If you're a fan of rock 'n roll joyride jam sessions, get this record.
