UFO paved the way for British heavy metal and astounded fans back in 1970. The group was flash and showy on stage, but as their first album ‘UFO 1’ reveals, they had bags of energy and ideas in the studio too. Here is the early Psych-Space Rock sound of a group with a big future that would come to dominate the Seventies.
This early version of UFO shows Phil Mogg (vocals) Pete Way (bass), Mick Bolton (guitar) and Andy Parker (drums) developing their unique space rock style with blues roots. ‘Unidentified Flying Object’ is a typical song of the period, showcasing Bolton’s Hendrix influenced guitar and Mogg’s intense vocals.
