Once Steve HILLAGE was a member of URIEL/ARZACHEL, KHAN and the seminal space fusion band GONG. In ’75 he made his first solo album "Fish Rising", soon after he left GONG and released a serie of studio LP’s between ’76 ("L") and ’83 ("And Or Not") and two live-albums entitled "Live Herald" (’78) and "BBC Radio 1" (’92). Steve HILLAGE, ‘the hippie from outer space’, will be remembered as one of the main inventors of the space rock, his unique guitarplay inspired later progrock bands like OZRIC TENTACLES and PORCUPINE TREE.
The first solo-album "Fish rising" is the HILLAGE’s most acclaimed record but my favorite is "Live Herald". This is a great and stunning live-recording with different line-ups, including drummer Clive Bunker (ex-JETHRO TULL) and bass player Colin Bass (later joining CAMEL). The music shows HILLAGE’s spectacular, often distorted and spacey effects and spectacular flights with the synthesizers (often the Minimoog). The climates shifts from dreamy of mellow to up-tempo and bombastic but it remains melodic and harmonic, not as complex and adventurous as GONG. (ProgArchive)
