Product Description

After much tweaking and perfecting, Liverpool band Space return with their latest album "Attack Of The Mutant 50ft Kebab"- their first new album in a decade. The band will release their first single from the album in March, a track called "Fortune Teller". "I'm keeping up with the mystic vibe!" says frontman Tommy Scott. 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. Platinum selling band Space came to prominence in the mid 1990's, with hit singles such as "Female of the Species", "Neighbourhood", "Avenging Angels", "Me and you Verses the World" and "The Ballad of Tom Jones". They also worked with Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews. 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."

OK, Cards on the table, I was a huge admirer of Space in the nineties. Their unique brand of skewed, wacky indie pop produced two classic albums, "Spiders" and "Tin Planet", both of which were brilliantly imperfect and had songs ranging from total genius to utterly terrible. Despite their obvious flaws, I found them impossible to dislike and "Tin Planet" was one of my very favourite and certainly most well-played albums of 1998. I'm sure that hardcore Space fans will be eager to disagree with me, but I was very disappointed with their "Suburban Rock 'n' Roll" comeback album of 2004 and their disappearance from the music scene afterwards was no real shock to me. After re-forming in 2011, their reappearance as a touring outfit last year with a slightly tweaked line-up was extremely welcome and I was able to catch a brilliant live show at London's Borderline venue, re-igniting my love of the band and whetting my appetite for the promised new album, the almost wince-inducingly titled "Attack Of The Mutant 50ft Kebab". I approached the album with more than a little trepidation; is this album, featuring an almost comically-grotesque Tommy Scott-drawn album cover, going to be as good as their irresistibly eclectic nineties best? The answer is yes, sort of.

"Tear Drops From The Moon", a tale of urban fear, provides a musically explosive and rather promising start to the album. Lead single, the slightly wonky-sounding "Fortune Teller", resplendent with Theremin, movie sound effects and references to Doctor Who and Harry Potter, was a little harder to love at first, but repeat plays help this almost annoyingly catchy track worm its way under the skin.

I purchased this album and had 3 replacement copies and the actual album it'self is fantastic. It is up there with the other Space albums.

However the quality of the vinyl was terrible with scratches and marks all over the 4 copies in total. Real shame I had to return them for a refund.

Having seen the reformed band several times I was aware the new album would contain some gems (Fortune Teller, Crying on the Webcam, She's in love with the boy in a bodybag and the title track Attack of the Mutant 50ft kebab) and the rest come together to form an album as clever and, in places, as dark as previous releases. An excellent effort

In my copy the song order also bears no resemblance to the cover listing which was something I've never known before - but this is the only criticism I can make

A diehard Space fan since they hit the scene back in the mid nineties. The agonizing wait for this release was difficult but well worth it. After the derailment of Love You More Than Football which to the day should still be released officially to fans, it was a wonder if Attack Of The Mutant 50ft Kebab would have made it to the shelves. So very happy that it did. After the first listen, I was a little bit like a deer in headlights, a mish mash of short quirky songs. But after my fifth listen, I'm just beyond blown away by the creative and artistic energy on this disc. I like that the songs are short and sweet and to the point, the melodies and creepy and brilliant. It's definitely a nice mix feel of their first two releases, but unique on its own stil. Huge recommendation is to get the B-side 'The Perfect Sin' and tack it on to the end of your playlist, fits super well with the disc and is a really good song as well. I wasn't *as* fond of Suburban Rock n Roll, this is a huge huge step forward. Space are back! Cheers to this great band!

Space are back with there best album since Tin Planet. I was hesitant due to the shuffle in band members but they are back with a great B-movie horror feel and its fantastic! if your a long time fan of space, or like the band based on a couple of songs this is a must buy and if you don't know them that well, if you like indie rock you owe it to yourself to give this a try!
