Space was a space disco group from Marseilles, France. This one comes off the 1977 Metropolis release. It is still the most epic space disco track ever. The pic above was from my trip to Malibu over the holiday where I was visiting and partying with some good friends who live next to Babs, Mccaughney, and Hans Zimmer . A washed up (so to speak) drunken sailor beached his 37' recording studio in this precious paradise while in-route to LA from Santa Barbara. He and his two cats survived. I threw my back out removing a strange piece of gear that would have been better served as a boat anchor.

If you are near Davis on Friday, come to the Delta of Venus where Dog Tones and I will be spinning funk, soul, and rare disco.

    Wotcha,i was never a huge fan of this,in fact i'd go as far as too say,i really don't like it one bit,(TOTP music,remember that)in the words of Pat Le Stache,'THAT BEING SAID',
    I think 'Space - Carry On, Turn Me On 'was a far better tune,but that's only my opinion humble as it is.

    Thanks Chaps.

    I still remember when I was a little kid watching a German music show when "Space" appeared "live" in their astronaut costumes to perform "Magic Fly". I was totally flashed. Even now, although I did not listen to it for a long while, every twist and turn in the melody is totally familiar. Just wonderful.

    On my point ''tango in space" is better :)

    That broken Wavestation is a heartbreaker...
