Biography

Space Raiders are a big beat/electronic glam band from Middlesbrough in the North-East of England. They formed in 1997, making their debut at the Middlesbrough Arena on Halloween 1997. Their performance consisted of little more than the members of the band kitted out in fancy dress dancing to a prerecorded Digital Audio Tape.

Despite this humble start, the band were signed to Fatboy Slim’s Skint Records in Brighton and released their debut single Glam Raid in early 1998. The band went on to release their debut album, called Don’t be Daft and a second album named Hot Cakes.

The band are probably best know for the single; (I need the) Disko Doktor.

It is claimed that the inspiration for the name Space raiders came from an empty Space Raiders crisp packet that blew through Gary Bradford’s front door in Middlesbrough.

2009 they released their first new track in 6 years,’Greenlights’,and announced a change in the line up;
Original member Gary Bradford (aka Spacedad) is now joined by Tegan Crawford (aka Hardface).
