Spacehog

Spacehog

In 1994 Spacehog, with original band members the Langdon brothers–Royston and Antony, Jonny Cragg, and Richard Steel, became quickly infamous for their legendary East Village gigs. Their sound was so very different from the neo-grunge movement of the early '90s that within a short time they signed a cocktail-napkin deal with the famed record executive Seymour Stein and his Sire Records label.

On October 24, 1995, Spacehog released their debut album Resident Alien, produced by Bryce Goggin. Resident Alien was well received, reaching #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart and selling more than 1 million copies. The album spawned the #1 mainstream rock hit single and video "In the Meantime." Spacehog created their own genre of sound, challenging the moniker of glam-rock and creating a new identity, carrying forth the profound influences of T. Rex, Iggy Pop, Queen, and David Bowie and The Spiders from Mars, by colliding these legendary sounds with a wall of distorted guitars and the stupendous daring of Royston Langdon's lead vocals.

The band's second disc, The Chinese Album, was released in March 1998. Spacehog signed with Danny Goldberg's musically discriminating independent label, Artemis Records, and released its third album, The Hogyssey, in February 2001. It was produced by Paul Ebersol in Memphis, Tennessee.

Spacehog then set off on their own personal journeys of growth. The inevitable musical voyage has reignited for the band, which now brings their individual experiences and sounds to the reinvigorated Spacehog.

Timo Ellis recently joined the band on guitar as Antony Langdon continues his cinematic pursuits. In 2013 Spacehog created a new collection of tunes, once again produced by Bryce Goggin. As It Is on Earth is available now.
