The quintessential SciFi band has to be Hawkwind
Formed in 1969 and still going strong, they invented 'space rock' as a sub-genre of 'rock'. Their first single (they are an albums band having produced on a very few singles) 'Silver Machine' made it to number 2 in the UK (in 1972) and stayed there for several weeks. With tracks like Sonic Attack, Brainstorm, Master of the Universe et al they truly are the SciFi band that defines Geek Music (in a rock genre). A heavy association with Michael Morecock, who has provided both inspiration and lyrics (See The Black Sword album) means that, certainly in the UK, any association of music and SciFi will automatically include Hawkwind.
