They’re Not Human

S.P.O.C.K. is a synthpop-band, as well as slightly legendary in at least Sweden. I wouldn’t call myself a fan but I’ve been enjoying their scifi-tinged and very lighthearted synthpop since the mid-1990’s. I first discovered them through a really crappy soundfile of “Never Trust A Klingon” downloaded when I first got access to the internet back around 1995-ish.

Formed in 1988 they were originally called Mr Spock but when Paramount (Owners of the Star Trek-franchise) began harrumphing loudly they changed their name to Star Pilot On Channel K, which incidentally acronyms as S.P.O.C.K.

Almost twenty years after I first heard them it was fun finally seeing them live, and to shoot the event as well!

      De finns! Eller ja, de har inte släppt en skiva sen 2001 tror jag, men de verkar turnera i nån form och det är ju roligt 🙂
