Spacehog is a quartet from Leeds that moved to New York and emerged with a
hybrid of glam-rock and grunge on Resident Alien (Sire, 1995).
Bowie's Ziggy period is the main influence on In The Meantime and
Never Coming Down, but, while they rely on catchy refrains and pathetic
bridges, they also rock loud and stern.
A bizarre space boogie (Spacehog) and
an epileptic and outrageous punk-pop (Space Is The Place) lift the band
from the sewers of Brit-glam that singer Royston Langdon favors.
The Chinese Album (Sire, 1998) indulges in their Bowie imitations
one too many times (Mungo City, Captain Freeman) and rarely
matches the vigor of the debut. Carry On, Skylark and
One Of These Days exhibit only the flaws of their derivative pop sound.
