RockBoar.com Picture    Space rock is a subgenre of rock music; the term originally referred to a group of early, mostly British, 1970s  progressive  and psychedelic rock bands such as HawkwindGong, and Pink Floyd, characterised by slow, lengthy instrumental passages dominated by electronic organs, synthesizers, experimental guitar work and science fiction or outer space-related lyrical themes, though it was later repurposed to refer to a series of late 1980s British alternative rock bands that drew from earlier influences to create a more ambient but still melodic form of pop music.

    A major album in the history of space rock was Hawkwind's "Space Ritual" (1973), a two-disc live album advertised as "88 minutes of brain-damage" documenting Hawkwind's successful 1972 tour that included a liquid light show and lasers, nude dancers (notably the earth-mother figure Stacia), wild costumes and psychedelic imagery.

    Apart from HawkwindMarc Bolan and his band T Rex probably had the most success with space rock, mainly appearing on album tracks such as "Ballrooms of Mars", "Venus Loon" and "Spaceball Ricochet", although he characterised his music as "cosmic rock" (at the end of his first No 1 hit in the UK - "Hot Love". Like Hawkwind's Dave Brock, Bolan used pentatonic guitar progressions to design riffs.

    Other examples include Flaming Youth's only album "Ark 2",  Arzachel's "Arzachel", Mournblade's "Times Running Out", and the collaborative concept album The Zodiac "Cosmic Sounds".
