Need some track suggestions for the sub-genre Space Rock..
If you suggest artists, please kindly suggest few tracks so I get the idea how they sound.
I think I suggested you the band Ozric Tentacles a while ago on your psychedelic rock/music thread.
Did you ever give them a listen? On the site www.allmusic.com, they describe them as this:
* Jam Bands
* Space Rock
* Alternative/ Indie Rock
So Space Rock is included. They have over 16 albums, but I know only 4 of them, as I am discovering this band right now. So maybe I don't know yet the albums that fits the most in the "space rock" category; so I will try to suggest you some songs that I think may fit in this genre
Here they are:
From the album The Hidden Step: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTgGdqUHZf0
From the album Waterfall Cities: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJJd32AwZUo
From the album Swirly Termination: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HJBBlohdII
From the album Curious Corn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5jJzKzfAoQ
So I hope you'll enjoy as much as me!
I have heard Hidden Step.
I guess will check them out again.. Are there no vocals/lyrics to their music.

Space Rock to me means Hawkwind. Won't be to everyone's taste, though...
Songs to check:
- Master of The Universe
- Quark Strangeness & Charm
- Silver Machine
- Spirit of The Age
and the live album Space Ritual is a treat IMV...
Of course, if you are searching for space rock with vocals and/or lyrics, forget completely Ozric Tentacles. They are 99% instrumental. I heard they once did only one song with vocals. But on my side, it's exactly what I love from them; good instrumental bands are so rare. I love instrumental music more, I don't know exactly why. I think it's because the main focus is on music so it have to be self describing; I mean the music have to speak for herself, no need to put vocals to explain what the music means or what happens, you can just use your imagination to interpret it how you feel it.

Tiggi, I have heard bit of Hawkwind, maybe 2 or 3 tracks.. from Space Ritual, I have heard Sonic Attack, will try your suggestions as well thanks.
Drealm, I liked Ozric Tentacles a lot.. But since they have 28 albums or so and the one I have had no vocals.. I thought I'd ask you if they do no vocals at all..
Anyway I'm hooked on Holohdron.
Heard some tracks of Flaming Youth's (Phil Collins' 1st band) - Ark 2 (Their only album).

Mike Oldfield's 'The Songs of Distant Earth' Also a band called Ramases - only made 2 albums I think. Space Hymns & Glass Top Coffin are the two I have heard.
