Biography

1. A French synthpop group active in the 1970's and the 1980's
Space is a French group playing and music, founded by Didier Marouani (known also under nickname Ecama). Song "Magic Fly" from their first album was a hit in the 70's. Space released three studio albums (Magic Fly, Deliverance, Just Blue), which became very influential in their subgenre. Creative differences led Marouani to leave the band around 1980, however the rest of Space released "Deeper Zone" LP in 1981. After it disbanded in 80's, Didier Marouani continued his career as solo artist before he got the brand name "Space" in the court around 1990, re-releasing classic albums and giving a concert tour. The latest Space album was released in 2002.

2. A British alternative rock group
Space are an indie/alternative dance band from Liverpool, England, who rose to prominence in the mid 90s' with hit singles such as "Female of the Species", "Me and You Versus the World", "Neighbourhood", "Avenging Angels" and "The Ballad of Tom Jones", the latter a duet with Cerys Matthews of Catatonia, and are still active today. Space pursued an eclectic sound dubbed "queasy listening" by critics, embracing electronica and sampling in their work and drawing from genres as diverse as hip hop, techno, post-punk, ska, lounge music, easy listening and film scores, the result of the differing tastes between band members. The group were also noted for their deliberately tongue-in-cheek, dark humoured lyrics inspired by films, which frequently deal with topics such as serial killers, failed relationships, social outcasts, and mental illness. Whilst Space's eclecticism and camp humour polarised listeners and critics, they have maintained a devoted cult following.

3. An alias of Jimmy Cauty of KLF
Jimmy Cauty (of The KLF, The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, etc. and, briefly, of The Orb) released his solo ambient album Space under the artist name Space. The album - originally released as one continuous track - is, like The KLF's landmark LP Chill Out, a "journey" album in which the product is a soundtrack of/for a trip. In Space's case, this trip is one through our solar system.

4. The project of an Australian guitarist active in the 2000's
Space is the moniker of the Australian-born guitarist for Memento, The Hiwatts, and Nine Times Bodyweight. Space's solo project was released in September of 2006 - you can hear his work at his official site as well as his personal mySpace page.

In this aural space, every movement matters.
