Spirit

Tagged: Music

US psychedelic rock band with an interest in science-fictional tropes. Spirit's eclectically inventive melange of style and subject is little listened-to now, although their fourth album Twelve Dreams of Doctor Sardonicus (1970) captures the late hippy blend of Mother Nature and the extraterrestrial cosmos in an interesting way, and Future Games (1977) bends the California experience around the lines of force of television science fiction, including Star Trek ("Bionic Unit", "Star Trek Dreaming", "Gorn Attack" and "The Romulan Experience").
