Sorry to be a pedant but did you realise that the title was:

X in Search of Space
....?

Check out the cover

I do, but didn’t know that at the time. However, In Search Of Space is how I’ve always thought of it, so that’s how it is.

This is your Captain speaking...

I saw them live on John Peel's Show a week before it was released

MM, or was it NME, described this new band as 'Pink Floyd on acid'

I'd never heard of them and wasn't aware of who Nik Turner was despite talking to him in the queue outside the venue for about 15 minutes!

It wasn't until they came on stage that I realised I was previously talking to a band member

Nice memories. And yes, they definitely borrowed from Pink Floyd at first, but soon found their own sound.

i was looking at the album cover earlier and the back part of the helmet goes right through the X.

I don't have the vinyl anymore, unfortunately, but the CD spine just says In Search Of Space.

But, you know, what an album!

And sometimes only Hawkwind will do. Tonight, it’s the turn of Levitation. Their last truly great album?

Any idea what the X was supposed to represent? A person? I’ve never considered it before.

Thanks for that, C. I stupidly sold the vinyl Of In Search Of Space with the ships log years ago. Always regretted that. I do however still have the fold out Space Ritual tour program that was given to you as you entered the theatre. In very good condition too.

Harvest - Underground Community

Spanish symphonic prog band, with vocals by Dutch female, sung in English.

Very nice debut album. Keys to the foreground but some nice guitar.

Tool - Fear Inoculum

Well, after all the hype it’s not bad on 1st play but there are some boring filler bits and to be honest my early impression is that the likes of Pain of Salvation do this stuff better.

Still, it certainly merits more eartime.

Never tire of this, did they ever better it - I don't think so, not even with young on board.
