Short-lived UK band, named after the Star Trek villain. Its sole release was Space Shanty (1972), a suite of prog-rock songs embroidering a loose futuristic spacefaring concept, especially in the tracks "Space Shanty", "Stargazers" and "Hollow Stone (incl. Escape of the Space Pilots)". The music is characteristic prog: grandiose and ornate, alternating meditative moments with harder rock-orchestral thumpings. [AR]
