Fury - Lost in Space (2016)

Space - Magic Fly (Full Album)

In a town where the shadow of The Beatles still hangs over every aspiring Liverpudlian musician, finding the personnel to translate the sound in Scott's head had proved a frustrating and fruitless task. A precocious musical talent and hive of hyperactivity, he'd always seemed too young to be involved.

In a town where the shadow of The Beatles still hangs over every aspiring Liverpudlian musician, finding the personnel to translate the sound in Scott's head had proved a frustrating and fruitless task. A precocious musical talent and hive of hyperactivity, he'd always seemed too young to be involved.

With a saying in mind "If you're big enough, you're old enough" , the first time Scott saw him out in a local nightclub, he decided to give it a go. Murphy turned up to his first rehearsal in school uniform.

Kraftwerk fanatic Franny Griffiths was in a nightclub one night in his native Liverpool, minding his own business when someone delivered an empty pack of cigarettes to him. He immediately dismissed it as soon as he read who had signed it: Franny, Jamie, Andy and Tommy "I know Tommy and Andy from way back when," Griffiths said in an interview, "and they didn't like each other when we were kids.

So, I get this note that said, 'Please come and join, help us do a demo. Lo and behold, the group's strange little songs showed promise and Scott and Parle were working together side by side. The original line-up was complete. Space had been born It was from this that Gut Records first discovered the band. Gut started a sub label called Hug Records and asked Mark's permission to release a record using the same label name.

They cut their live teeth around this time too, but it was the release of their first proper single Neighbourhood that really kicked things off for the band.

It told the tale of Tommys childhood street in Liverpool, but with serial killers and transvestites in starring role. This was pop music with a dark and sharp edge, a taste of things to come. The second single Female of the Species was a bolt from the blue. Scott wrote this song for his late father, who had always hated his music.

He wanted it to sound like a Burt Bacharach tune sung by Frank Sinatra. The results were wonderful. Female of the Species was an instant classic, staying in the UK top 40 for an amazing 3 months. It was this song that catapulted Space to a whole new audience. The debut album Spiders was a resounding critical success. Three sold out tours, three further Top 20 singles Dark Clouds , a re-released Neighbourhood and the Top 10 hit Me and You Versus The World and some triumphant festival appearances followed.

Old acquaintance Dave Palmer, better known as Yorkie, joined the band in late After helping out with the album, Yorkie was asked to become the bands' full time bassist, allowing Tommy to concentrate on vocals. Internationally, things began to happen for the band, already a massive hit in the UK Female of the Species also gained moderate airplay on college radio and MTV in America as well. With success comes touring, with touring comes stress A tour of the US followed in mid Jamie, the youngest member of the band at only 21, found it all too much.

He took a break, missing some live shows and TV appearances. The death of Palmer's mother, legendary Liverpool singer Gladys Palmer, also devastated the band. This was a darker, more song-led album than their debut. Scott's voice was at the fore, as the band mixed the classicism of his songs with Griffiths' keyboard backdrops, Murphy's energy and Parles' solid rhythms.

Tommy describes Tin Planet as, "More darkness, but the songs are pure love songs. Our first songs used to be trying to be like Speedy Gonzales or Peter Lorre. Now its more Marlene Dietrich. It's still Space, the strangeness and the stories; it's just darker, and well, better. This LP what I wanted much more, Im looking forward to people hearing it, we're raring to go now.

He was immediately replaced by Leon Caffrey. The first single from Tin Planet was Avenging Angels which was released in December and went straight into the charts at No. The album itself was released in March and entered the album charts at Number 3! The next single Begin Again was released in June The Tin Planet Live video was also released on the same date. Love You More Than Football During Space took a well earned break from the rigours of touring and concentrated on writing material for their third album.

However after the first single Diary of a Wimp didnt meet expected sales levels, the release of the album was delayed indefinitely by Gut records. A further UK tour was announced in September but later cancelled due to legal problems with the record company. These difficulties forced the band to wait for a termination agreement before recording any new material. Getting Intimate Between record companies Space took time rewriting material for their new album and at the end of announced a free intimate gig for the fans, scheduled for the 26th January at the Unity Theatre in Liverpool.

However with just a week to go before the performance fans were thrown into confusion when the news spread that Jamie Murphy had left the band again.

But the show went ahead regardless and was performed in front of fans, a demonstration of the new material written and also a selection of the old favourites. A free CD containing two tracks later to become part of the Music For Aliens series was given to all who attended. The show went well despite the last-minute loss of Jamie and was enjoyed by all, with the new songs sounding great and Space giving a superb performance.

They then went into the studio to record their new album Suburban Rock 'n' Roll. Described as "11 brilliant trips into the crazed mind of Tommy Scott", this was the new Space sound at its best. Sadly it only reached 47 in the UK singles chart. Suburban Rock 'n' Roll More record label trouble followed and the release of the next single and the album suffered a series of further setbacks. Fast-forward through with a near-signing to another label and a series of Music For Aliens releases to keep the loyal fans happy and we arrive in November , when Space signed to randm records.

The first release under randm came in February , with the title track from the new album, Suburban Rock 'n' Roll. It reached 16 in the UK Indie charts. This was closely followed by Suburban Rock 'n' Roll the album in March, the first Space album to hit the shops in 5 long years. The last release under randm, and the last to date, was the single 20 Million Miles from Earth, released in May It reached 35 in the UK Indie chart.

By now the band was fatigued from years of delayed releases, problems with record labels and a lukewarm response to their latest releases. Following months of speculation about their status by fans, Space were finally declared to have parted ways in an email from Yorkie to a fan. An unfortunately low-key and quiet ending for a band that was still beloved by many. Following their split the group went separate ways musically.

Tommy formed a new band called The Drellas, to be later joined by Leon. Franny produced under the name Subway Showdown, then reunited with Jamie as band members in Dust.

Yorkie continued to produce music and work on his solo project Moongoose. In August , Space's former drummer Andy Parle sadly passed away. The remaining original members met at his funeral and this broke the ice between them. This encounter sowed the seeds for what was to follow.

Space Reunited In November the big news hit that Space were back. The new line-up reunited original members Tommy, Jamie and Franny back together for the first time in 10 years. Space's return was cemented with a reunion gig at the O2 Academy Liverpool in December The show was a quick sell-out, and gave fans an early taste of the band's new material and sound.

By September it had become apparent that Jamie was no longer part of the group, though no official reason was given for the latest split.

The rest of the band continues to work towards a release for the new album and a UK tour.
