Living Wreck, Lost in Space, HDL503 Cyberhome: Hi-Note Music Lost in Space's psychedelic cover art and name alone make it unsurprising that the band has been influenced by spacerock legends Hawkwind, but the music the album contains shows an undeniable influence, with the emphasis on the group's more hard-rock moments. Like Hawkwind, the group's sound has little variation and quickly gets tiresome, but is pleasant enough in small doses. Going through individual songs is rather pointless - they all feature the constantly aggressive rhythm section of drummer 'Dumpy' Williams (?) and bassist Wagon Wheel (??), as well as some heavy Dave Brockian two-chord riffs from guitarists Nobby Bell and Vic Hollis (bassist Pod Holstein and guitarist Acid Saunders also guest on many tracks) and Wagon Wheel's half-shouted, amelodic vocals. Almost all of the compositions are structured like traditional verse-chorus-verse-solo-chorus songs, which mostly worked against the band since the band's static sound make it nearly impossible to provide any build or contrast necessary to differentiate verse or chorus sections ("Live This Lie" sorta pulls it off). Things are slightly more dynamic instrumentally, but as I mentioned - if you can't stand Hawkwind don't bother with this. Still, if this kinda sound is your thing, you should check Lost in Space. ~Jon Dharma Murphree~
