Jimmys Band Of the Week – Space

What a band, what a name, Space are here and are playing Jimmys Liverpool soon.

Tommy Scott (then bass player), Jamie Murphy, and Andy Parle formed Space in 1993 and aimed for a Who-influenced sound, releasing a 12-inch single entitled “Is It Real”. After Franny Griffiths, an old friend and former member of Scott’s earlier group Hello Sunset was brought in to join them on keyboards and electronics a year later, establishing their trademark style. The band secured a recording contract with Gut Records who released their first single, “Money” in 1995. The single “Neighbourhood”‘ followed in 1996 but it was not until the release of their next single, “Female of the Species”, that they achieved popular acclaim. This song was also the theme song to the UK television series Cold Feet.

In 2019, a boxset entitled The Anthology was announced for release in November. It contains the band’s first five studio albums, including the previously unreleased Love You More than Football, plus B-sides and rarities.
