4 stars Space rock? Now, I honestly don't know. Shuttah has more in common with other brassy progg outfits of the 70's than say Hawkwind. But let's not argue. The point is this, Shuttah made an album back in the dawn of 1970's and vanished without a trace. Shame, really, since the music is both talented, varied and enjoyable and it is a thematic album aswell, covering both world wars. In some respects it is a more rocking affair than The Kinks "Arthur".

There is, if you are into that stuff like me, a beautiful britishness about the whole thing with spoken interludes and imagery of a world, albeit british, now gone. In some ways it is quite a nostalgic affair, though musically progressive and modern by the time it appeared. It really is a mystery, how this accomplished band with such a well produced album disappeared like a ghost ship in the night but there you go. Life isn't always fair.

Shuttah's only album hails from the morning of prog and should be able to please anyone with an interest in that kind of music. Colourful, likeable and enjoyable. Get a copy and you'll understand what I mean.
