Spacehog used to be a Madchester band called Hollow Men. After leaning heavily on the wah-wah pedal and big flares, they tightened up their act, dove headfirst into a vat of yesterday's glitter and became Spacehog. Mining roots from the Glam-ily tree, Spacehog fused the Bowie-esque inflections of singer Royston Langdon with his brother Ant's Mick Ronson/Marc Bolan style of guitarrorism. Drummer Johnny Cragg uses his bionic arms to pound out otherworldly rhythms last heard from Keith Moon. Although Cragg has yet to adopt the double bass set up, his rhythmic ingenuity and skilled dedication to hitting things with sticks is a sheer joy to hear or watch live, especially when the guitar player rocks the blue-glitter motorcycle helmet on stage.
