Space In-depth Biography

Stealing from the campy styles of Echo & the Bunnymen} and the infectious sounds of the Boo Radleys}, Liverpool's Space} wasn't going to become just another U.K. band to burst on to the "alternative}" scene in the early '90s. Tommy Scott} (vocals/bass), Jamie Murphy} (guitar), and Andy Kowalski} (drums) formed in 1993 and aimed for a Who}-influenced sound. A deal with Gut Records} saw the release on the unnoticed Me and You Versus the World} in 1996, but it was the kitschy single "Female of the Spiders"} (1997) that made Space} indie rock} darlings. By now, keyboardist Franny Griffith} and vocalist Dave "Yorkie" Palmer} had joined the group, and Space} was enjoying favorable success with their Universal} debut, Spiders}. Already a massive hit in the U.K., "Female of the Species"} also gained moderate airplay on college radio and MTV} in America as well. A tour of the U.S. followed in mid-1997; however, it wasn't as bright as the band and critics had hoped. Murphy} disappeared for awhile, and the death of Palmer}'s mother, Gladys Palmer} (a legendary singer from Liverpool), devastated the band. By the time Space} had to record a follow-up, Kowalski} left the band. Leon Caffrey} (drums) took his place for the Tin Planet} sessions and the album was issued in spring 1998, hitting number three on the U.K. charts. Space} released a third studio effort, entitled Love You More Than Football} (2001), and featured Edwyn Collins} in the co-production seat. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
