I use to enjoy this band when I was a young un...
but yeah lookin back I have no idea at all.
i knew a guy who was obsessed with them.
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=N-wIvsZBFhQ - dunno what drew him to them. perhaps their fleeces?
They were making music for the time. They wouldnt get signed now, but it was pretty obvious people would lap it up at the time.
that no one have at the moment...
Are you saying that Space come up with better pop melodies than anyone currently putting out records?
Aah! In the mainstream. Phew. I was gonna say, that's some chronic disaffection there.
and so do The Feeling.
were fucking brilliant.
You & Me Versus The World and Avenging Angels in particular were excellent singles, and Tin Planet is a stupid pop masterpiece.
You people are idiots.
Although I was 13/14 at the time, but I loved them.
It is pretty harsh/tricky to judge pop(ish) albums out of their historical context.
I dusted off my copy of Spiders the other day - it's a fun album, although admittedly the repulsion of the Liverpudlian accent kicks in after track 3 or so
and so on. Lyrical gems. In a way.
Spiders has aged badly, but I still think Tin Planet is ace. Disco Dolly :)
and now THIS?
will people stop using the acronym LOL? it's so tacky at this stage. i feel like a prick for just typing it there.
space were great.
hanging knickers on the line......" etc etc..
I used to love this band back in the day. The love soon subsided tho.
in my class snapped my copy of Spiders in half "by accident" - I hated the bitch.
but Female of the Species is still a fantastic song
so signing them was less absurd than those bands that got signed then failed to have hit singles.
I've not heard any Space since about 1998/1999. Part of me thinks it'd be interesting to listen back and see what I think now. Part of me is terrified to do so...
and they did
is a GREAT song.
Neighbourhood and you and me vs the world are good too. And avenging angels.
So, all in all, not a massive output of quality, but seems a bit pointless to slag them off.
I have a flip-bin lid singed by all of Space. Still.
they're better than kings of leon
The Pigeon detectives
Scouting for Girls
The fucking Hoosiers.
Space were alright until they disappeard up their own firmament after the Tom Jones thing.
'you and me vs the world' was a tune and a half
They were quite fun wern't they?
Like a firm shit.
How did the Fartellis get signed? Or why? People are cruel.
or a very funny putdown?
Space are one of the most important bands of all time, Tin Planet is a masterpiece, Avenging Angels is 2'59" of pure perfection. I own Suburban Rock 'N' Roll which is a really strong record. Also how many bands can say they have had more best of albums than albums. Space are a prime example of a Label fucking a band that made them.
Fuck the haters!
are all cool sarcastic fueled DiS boarders. Yhey had some decent, catchy singles which sound a bit dated now.
They were super. Money, Begin Again and One O'Clock are some less famous favourites of mine.
