    The first LP is by far the best and a masterpiece. In Search of Space is good except for You Shouldn't Do That. After these first two, it was a bumpy downhill all the way.

    They were a little before my time, however, I know that the British Sci-Fi author, Michael Moorecock (Elric series) was really into them. Do you know about his affiliation with the band?

    That's my point. He came in much later. The first LP is by far the best, without science fiction writers.

    I'm not sure the Elric books count as "Science" Fiction. They're medieval fantasy.

    I'll have to listen to it since my not very favourable impressions are based on later Hawkwind.

    Didn't Motorhead come from Hawkwind? Another Moorcock connection -- Lemmy appears in his book 'The Entropy Tango'.

    Moorcock also wrote songs for the Blue Oyster Cult -- but have you heard his band The Deep Fix? I'm not quite sure about it, but I've only listened to it twice.

    Elric is pure swords-and-sorcery, but it does link in with Moorcock's 'science fiction' in ways that are too complicated to go into here.
