Spacehog

  • Spacehog is an English rock band from the 1990s and 2000s, heavily influenced by David Bowie, Queen, and T. Rex.
  • Though all the band members hail originally from Leeds, England, the band formed in New York City in 1994 when Antony Langdon met Cragg by chance, in a café where Cragg had a job killing rats. Soon after, Langdon's brother Royston joined the band, and Spacehog was born.
  • On October 24, 1995, Spacehog released their debut album, Resident Alien. It went gold on the Billboard charts, selling over 500,000 copies and spawned the hit single and video "In the Meantime" as well as the single "Cruel to be Kind".
  • "In the Meantime" received heavy video and radio play, and featured as background music to BBC's Match of the Day football programme.
  • Royston, Antony and Christian Langdon then pooled their resources to form Arckid. By June 2006, they had recorded eight songs with Bryce Goggin at Trout Studios in Brooklyn. Johnny Cragg, now sporting a moustache, joined The Twenty-Twos as their drummer post-Spacehog, but has since rejoined the Langdon brothers in Arckid.
