    S. P. O. C. K. Assignment: Earth

    According to Wikipedia, S.P.O.C.K. is a Swedish synth-pop band formed around 1988. This CD will pair up perfectly with my Leonard Nimoy CD, Mr. Spock, Music From Outer Space.




    No, I'm not a Trekkie, but with their space-based lyrics, S. P. O. C. K. will appeal to the pointy-eared closet space cadet in your home. Sample lyrics:

    I see them in my dreams, I see them in my head
    in the night, intensive light
    they are standing around my bed

    I beg them "please" but there is no sound
    instead I'm floating above the ground

    then they're doing things to me
    with some weird machinery

    they're not human
    they are not like you and me




    At their roots, S.P.O.C.K are a party band, fuelled by ABV and MIDI in equal quantities. That said, the appeal of their songs goes beyond the energetic beats of Star Pilots on Channel K or dancefloor-friendly melody of Never Trust a Klingon. The reference to popular science fiction provides a recognisable aesthetic, but it is also a vehicle to explore themes of alienation and longing. Songs like Take Me to the Stars (“I want to leave this place, fly across the universe, never see this race.”) or Where Rockets Fly (“You’re not alone.”) are on a frequency also used to great effect by Depeche Mode. The emotive force of their songs is precisely what lifts S.P.O.C.K out of any novelty act pigeon-hole.
    Man, add a little Shatner and you've got yourself an out-of-this-world CD. You're welcome.

    It should pair well with my Nichelle Nichols blow up doll....
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"
