On a personal level, his connection to the farce

It features a 1992 Chrysler Spirit smashed by a 9-ton boulder of red basalt from the Mexican volcano Xitle.
Durham gave the stone a cartoon-like face afterwards. As of 2021, it was located at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

The Moody Blues are known for their song “
Nights in White Satin” (1967), which is not one of my favorite recordings from that year.
John Goodsall was an American-British rock guitarist known for his work with Atomic Rooster and Brand X.
(1976) Unorthodox Behaviour

Evette Benton (1953 – 2021) was an American singer known for her background work as one of the vocalists of the The Sweethearts of Sigma. She can also be heard on such records as “Space Bass” (1979).
You could say that “Space Bass” is specimen of the space disco genre. In that genre, if it exists, should also be “Dancing in Outer Space”, “The Chase”, “Cocomotion”, “Powerline”, “Space Funk”, “Carry On”, “Turn Me On”, “Atmosphere Strut”, “Solar Flight (Opus 1)”, “Nobody’s Got Time”, “War Dance”.
