Space: Skank it up In Manchester

Glasswerk are proud to present the weird and wonderful Space. Space will be touring to promote their first box set of albums ever released due for release in late December, you can catch Space live on the 22 November at FAC 251, Manchester

And so to 2015 and after the release of their latest album ‘Attack Of The Mutant 50ft Kebab’- their first new album for nine years. Tommy’s influence for the new songs stemmed from his infamous fascination with science and horror films, and he likens the album to a ‘Fifties B-Movie’ for the ears. The band continue to tour the UK through 2015 performing at Festivals through the summer before embarking on the full uk tour October, November and December to promote the first ever Boxset of Albums. due for release Xmas 2015.

Proud to note how Space have always stood out from the ‘normal,’ Tommy concedes that their latest album has the usual signature Space quirkiness, with some extra ingredients added to the mix – he describes the songs as a mish-mash of SKA, Punk and the classic Space sound. “When we tour, we love playing the old stuff, but I always knew I wanted to record some new material. We know the fans like to hear the old classics from our multi-million selling albums ‘Spiders’ and ‘Tin Planet’, but we wanted to give them something extra.

The title track on the album is my favourite song, and is the story of how a fifty foot kebab from a side street takeaway shop wreaks its revenge on the ailing high street. It’s a message about survival in a tongue-in-cheek way. We’ll be releasing our first single from this album in January 2014, a track called ‘Fortune Teller’ – keeping up with the mystic vibe!

The band have already previewed some of the new songs on their last tour, and although they went down a storm with fans, Tommy admits the recording of the album took longer than expected “because I’m such a perfectionist.

Space have sold over 2 million albums world wide with titles including “Spiders, “Tin Planet” “Suburban Rock and Roll” and “Attack of the Mutant 50ft Kebab” and also released 10 top 40 singles and host of other single releases to-date with titles including “Neighbourhood” “Female of the Species”, “Me and You Vs The World” “Avenging Angels” “Dark Clouds”,and “Begin Again” The band continue to write gritty edgy pop songs that captive the imagination of the listener, The band release the Album Box Set in October 2015 to include the 4 albums released todate plus the un-released Album “Love you More Than Football” along with a new studio album to be written and recorded in September….
