S.P.O.C.K around the clock

A slice of classic mid-nineties Swedish synth-pop today, courtesy of the Star Trek-loving S.P.O.C.K. - I'm guessing they must be quite keen on that show, anyway, bearing in mind a) their name b) the fact that they like to don Starship Enterprise uniforms on stage & c) because one of their most famous songs is called Never Trust A Klingon. Oh, and d) their band members include one "Android" and a "Captain Eddie B Kirk".

So yes, they're possibly a *bit* wacky. Maintaining the space theme (I'm not a massive authority on S.P.O.C.K but it would seem that pretty much everything they ever recorded was sci-fi related in some way), today's song, Astrogirl, is chuffing brilliant if, like me, you're a fan of the whole cheesy electro Europop thing. Knocks Star Trekkin' by The Firm into a cocked hat too (not difficult, admittedly).
