Sticks nix hicks. . . .ummmm. . . Jez Nelson on Space Is the Place by Sun Ra
Space Is the Place combines many of the elements that make Ra’s music unique. It swings like classic jazz, features supremely accomplished but off-kilter musicianship, and has a catchy melody wrapped in a futuristic and crazy soundscape. The whole thing is finished off with imagery and messages drawn from Egyptology and Saturn - the planet Ra claimed was his home.

Nothing really to do with archaeology, but I liked the headline.
