Space with support from The Mono LP's and Edgar Jones
Friday 26 October 2012, O2 Academy Liverpool £17.50
Liverpool band Space reformed last December to play a sell out Christmas show at the 02 Academy. They head back to the venue on Friday 26 October as part of a national tour. The track Frightened Hoarse's is available now on download. Their forthcoming album Attack of the Mutant 50ft Kebab will be out next year.
The line-up features original band members Tommy Scott (vocals/guitar) and Franny Griffiths (keyboards). Along with Phil Hartley (double bass/bass), Ryan Clarke (vintage keys)
and drummer Allan Jones who will replace Andy Parle who sadly died in 2009 and Jamie Murphy (vocals/guitar) left the band due to musical differences.
The platinum selling band came to prominence in the mid 1990's with hit single such as Female of the Species, Neighbourhood, Avenging Angels, Me and you Verses the World and The Ballad of Tom Jones. They worked with Tom Jones in 1999 and Cerys Matthews a year earlier. The band formed in 1993 and released four studio albums, plus a number of charting singles, before disbanding in 2005.
Championed by BBC Introducing's Dave Monks, recording a one off sell out live gig at the Cavern Club for the BBC's Live Lounge Liverpool sessions, The Mono LP's are considered one of Liverpool's bright young things attracting a lot of attention and selling out venues all over the UK.
Headlining shows for Alan McGee's (Oasis, Creation Records) Death Disco night in the Notting Hill Art Club London and Liverpool, the band also played this year's Kendal Calling Festival. The band goes from strength to strength as they intend to release their first single, since signing a deal with Cavern Records, and embark on their first major tour. Vicky, from the band, has worked with The View and The Blood Red Shoes on their last two albums.
Edgar Jones, the former Stairs singer/Paul Weller bassist/Jones's frontman also joins the bill.
