Space Hog ~ Resident Alien
Top Customer Reviews
Everyone will recognise the intro to "In The Meantime", as it was borrowed for the One 2 One telephone adverts (sounds like a telephone ringing). The tracks are all very listenable, but the ones written by the lead singer/bassist are musically the strongest. Only "Spacehog" and "Space Is The Place" were written by the singer's brother, who plays rhythm guitar in the band, and they are slightly more raucous and less refined. Watch out for the 8 minute hidden track on the end of the CD (...what can only be described as a kind of satanic moo-ing!)!
Worth getting, even if it is slightly weaker than "The Chinese Album", and what I have heard of the forthcoming "The Hogyssey" at the time of writing. I bought the CD on the strength of "In The Meantime" alone, and it comes highly recommended.
A very good band who deserve more sales and airplay than they get.
Yes this album was released 12 years ago. I was still in High school and I remember spending some of my unearned grant money on this album. Why? In the Meantime. That's it. A song so strong, so differnet and so not like a bunch of prats in parkers bellowing into a microphone singing about random nonsense. I bought the album with the feeling that this album would outshine In the Meantime and I was right. There are some gems in this and I was hooked. Starside is so camp it could have been a Scissor Sister's song (circa 1995) but it delivered with a swagger which would have suited any glitter rock artist back in the day.
The mixture of punk rifts and synth is sometimes an over streched concept in this album. It does work on Only a Few and In the Meantime to great and emotional effect but it falls on it;s face on Shipwrecked. There are ruts in the litter. The Last Dictator is lost on me and so is Shipwrecked but wo out of 13 aint bad. The album bombs along with great pace and delivery butit's not suprising the Spacehog was not successful.
They were, to me anyway, too individual to be replicated like so many bands these days. They weren't Oasis or Cast or the Spice Girls. They were different and unique. They made punk acceptable beore Green Day but not in a so obvious way. Buy it if you want. If not you are missing out on a gem that has passed under the radar.
Definitely a band that gets nowhere nearly enough recognition in the UK as they should. Both musically and lyrically of a high standard, there are few albums around that contain such a large proportion of quality tracks. Not just 'In the Meantime' but Shipwrecked, 'The Last Dictator', Zeroes, 'Cruel to be Kind', 'Space is the Place' and 'Never Coming Down (Part II)' are all songs which many more people should be familiar with, as far as I am concerned.
