This picture is actually an old boss of mine as a kid in southern california during the height of the space race, all tooled up and ready to fight communists on the moon. he had it on his facebook page, I didn't ask his permission to use it but then I don't think he has much of a taste for deep cosmic disco anyway and the chances of him happening upon it posted on BE should be slim.
I'm getting ready to head to Europe on Tuesday and didn't think to record enough tracks this weekend to post up whilst I'm away, but then I haven't done my laundry or watered my plants yet either so it will have to go to the back of the to do list.
I was at a record store near San Jose last week and came across this Space 12". I like the Space album that everyone knows that has Magic Fly on it etc well enough, I'm not the biggest cosmic disco nerd in the world, but the Carry On, Turn Me On 12" is probably their finest, rarest and most sought after work. Made in France in 1977 it sounds like an Air record twenty years ahead of it's time, but a little funkier. This was famously sampled by Moody Man to great effect, although in it's own right it was already a slab of perfect house.
