The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets
Spaceship Zero: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Only this band of merry weirdos would record a soundtrack to the late ’70s cult television show, Spaceship Zero, 25 years after the fact, complete with hilarious CD art depicting the band as characters in the show. For those in the dark about the Thickets, and surely there are many, this group began in Maple Ridge, BC in the mid-’90s and have since stupified listeners with their strange brand of H.P. Lovecraft-inspired sci-fi rock. Metal, punk and riff rock all poke their ugly little heads out in the Thickets’ sound, creating songs that definitely go over most music fans’ heads. A band for the intelligent but disturbed, this latest album is their slickest and sickest production yet.
