Love this band. They are obviously Hawkwind influenced.

Wikipedia:

"Monster Magnet's style is heavily influenced by 1970s space rock bands such as Hawkwind and Captain Beyond.[citation needed] In addition to recording covers such as Hawkwind's "Brainstorm" (Doremi Fasol Latido, 1972), Wyndorf sometimes incorporated elements of space rock staples into his own songs. For instance, the Dopes to Infinity title track borrows some of its lyrics from "Lord of Light" (ibid.), and Superjudge's "Twin Earth" is a reinterpretation of Captain Beyond's "Mesmerization Eclipse" (Captain Beyond, 1972). Wyndorf also is a fan on 1960s comic books, particularly Jack Kirby. He mentions Kirby in the song "Melt" from God Says No. He also mentions MODOK (on "Baby Götterdämerung" from Powertrip) and Ego the Living Planet (on "Ego, The Living Planet" from Dopes to Infinity), both of which are Marvel Comics creations. "All Shook Out" from God Says No has a reference to "Children of the Atom" which is a reference to X-Men, also from Marvel Comics.

Monster Magnet's live shows occasionally feature Stacia-esque nude dancers, which has landed them in trouble with the law in some American cities."

Have to say that I think they would be even better with a good synth programmer/player to add to the spaciness.

I'm available at the right price Smile

I'll post one of my favourite Spacerock groups.....Secret Saucer....much more like Hawkwind and well rooted in 70's style and psychedelia.

I saw them live at Ozzfest a while back. It was quite a lineup that day.

I got to see a lot of bands I love: Monster Magent, Stabbing Westward, Clutch, and Kittie all played
(if I remember right).

I will be posting some from those bands too....

Hey GinN!
Yep, Space Lord is probably their best known hit. It's on PowerTrip which is chock full of
great tunes.

I like "Crop Circle" a lot which is on there too....

You were in High School? Dang, you're young! Very Happy
