THE SPACE LADY plus Bronze and Group Rhoda
THE SPACE LADY first SF club appearance
plus Bronze and Group Rhoda with DJ Special Lord B
The Space Lady began her odyssey on the streets of San Francisco in the late 70s, playing versions of contemporary pop music an accordion and dressed flamboyantly, transmitting messages of peace and harmony. Following the theft of her accordion, The Space Lady invested in a then-new Casio keyboard, birthing an otherworldly new dimension to popular song that has captured the imaginations of the underground and its lead exponents ever since.
Of her early street sets, only one recording was made, self-released originally on cassette and then transferred to a home-made CD. Reissued on vinyl this year for the first "The Space Lady's Greatest Hits"(LSSN021) features the best of these recordings - mostly covers but with some originals - and features archival photographs and liner notes from The Space Lady herself. "Greatest Hits" contains The Space Lady's personal favourites; her haunting take on The Electric Prunes' "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)," a frantic "Ballroom Blitz" amidst other reconstructed pop music. Included are also 4 originals that easily match for the Pop canon. Following the release of this archive, The Space Lady will be issuing new material and travelling the world to present her message outside the United States for the first time.
