One of those weird eccentric figures of the late 60's, Kimberly Barrington Frost* from Sheffield claimed to have been visited by the most famous Pharoah and renamed his wife Selket (an Egyptian divinity) and started dressing up strange , recorded two very rare (and unsuccesful) singles before re-surfacing with a full band that released two albums on the famous Vertigo label and a stunning fold-out artwork sleeve from in-house designer Roger Dean.
Among the members of the new group he had formed, the nucleus of the future 10CC group (Godley Creme Gouldman & Stewart) played central roles and many superb harmonies and inventive, catchy hooks of this "Space Hymns" album will remind you of the pop-extraordinaire group that later graced the hit charts of the mid and late 70's. An absolutely delightful cult status album every proghead should own, that was a followed e few years later by a much less famous second album "Glass Top Coffin" (but without the 10CC members) which still has moments of brilliance. To my knowledge this second album has yet to have a CD re-issue.
