One of England's longest enduring heavy rock bands, this space age outfit first formed in the late 1960s when experimental music was rising to prominence. In the early days, they demonstrated a bold and edgy sound but it wasn't until they started peppering the lyrics of their second album with space age themes that they began to attract attention. They combined thrashing guitars with hypnotic synthesizers, founding their boundary-pushing sound around science fiction staples such as particle theory and imagined Martians.
This bizarre band are celebrated as one of the pioneering groups of their era and are famous for connecting hippie culture with punk rock, with legendary bands like the Sex Pistols and Black Flag have citing them as an inspiration. They boast an extensive discography including their most recent 2013 album Spacehawk and while they might not achieve sensational record sales, serious music fans often consider them to be an amplified version of Pink Floyd.
