    Actually, my favourite Moorcockian inspired music is "Opaloka" on the Album by "Warriors on the edge of time" by Hawkwind.

      I know this song well and know the Moorcock references on the rest of the album but don't see them in this; can you explain?. It's a great track though, ahead of its time, anticipating trance.

        I don't know if there are any Moorcockian references in this. Like you say. It's a fantastic proto-trance piece of music that I love zoning out to.
        A bit of googling shows there's a city Opa-locka in Florida. Perhaps it refers to some party or event there?

        On a sort of related note. Here's an album by a German musician from wayback that I similarly zone out to:
        Wunderbar , by Wolfgang Reichmann

          I like that. It reminds me of Tangerine Dream of course but also of The Future Sond of London and Throbing Gristle. Did you ever hear this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwcL...PlEoqpWKca6Yqt

            No not heard that one before.
            Kind of reminds me of Gong and The residents . The sort of music I like when I'm in the mood for something quirky.

            I'll check out those other bands too thanx :)

              I think I discovered it back in the seventies because people knew I liked Gong. It is a little earlier than Gong,being from 1968 and the work of Delia Derbyshire who did theoriginal Dr Who theme and some colleagues. I had no idea it was her until very recently. Throbing Gristle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHPe-IzR2D0 are another seventies electronic band but Future Sound of London are fromthe nineties https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdFKoZHzMQ0.

                Very cool I'll have to check it out too! I enjoy Gong a lot and listen to them often...thanks!

                  Oh nice. You mentioned Delia Derbyshire.
                  I love the original Dr Who theme tune.

                  It motivated me to do a journey down the rabbit hole of Delia's work. Very fascinating and a great insight into early Electronic music.

                  Not heard of throbbing Gristle. I remember Future sound of London though from the 90s. I was living in the UK around then. So picked up on a lot of UK music scene stuff around then.

                    What about this ditty from NWOBHM pioneers Diamond Head:

                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaifHGyoZt0

                    I always thought their metal anthem 'Am I Evil' was about Corum also, but it it would seem I was wrong:

                    Not sure where or how I came to that conclusion, is was a long time ago...
