Klaatu is one of my favorite 'obscure' bands... Their main claim to musical fame is that they wrote the song "Calling Occupants Of Interstellar Craft" which The Captain and Tenneil (sp) made famous...

another 'secret pleasure of mine' is "Horslips" (The first Celtic Rock band.)..  Here's my two favorites...



Oh My GOD!
You DO listen to the right music.
Book of Invasions and The Tain are two of my all time favourite albums.
Totally fecking breathtaking.

Good heavens! A fellow "Horsehead"!

I have worn those two out completely several times over... Also "Belfast Gigs" and "Drive the Cold Winter Away"...  (too bad about "The Unfortunate Cup of Tea" though - not everyone hits it out of the park every time)

I must have listened to those two albums thousands of times.
I've just tried to decide on what track to include and I just can't!
LOL, 'The unfortunate cup of tea'!!

I do love 'Time to Kill'


And

To be a little gently fried and listen to on headphones:
Sword of light

Love "Sword of Light"

From "Aliens" - I've told my brother and sisters that I want this song played at my funeral (assuming I can't figure out a way to live forever...)

Gotta include these guys.
I have kids in their 20's...and these guys are old enough to be my father.

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

I'm ashamed to say I'd forgotten Aliens.
Thanks for that great reminder of another great album. :)

Hey LD,

As you can see, we are casting our net pretty wide here, so whatever you like is going to be good with us I think ;)

Wow, you forget how huge RUSH were. I had a friend who played 2112 until my ears bled!
If I had a penny for every copy of that album sold........
