Finding their fame within the Britpop era of the 90s, Liverpool indie outfit Space are responsible for recognisable and charting hits such as 'Female of the Species', 'Neighbourhood' and 'Ballad of Tom Jones', the latter of which featured Catatonia singer and 6Music DJ Cerys Matthews. The band used

The band used 60s influenced melodic guitar similar to The Kinks and The Who and added their own twist with futuristic synth sounds and hip hop samples. They created a brand of Britpop that differed from the usual guitar dominated sounds of the genre.

With narrative lyrics that tell stories of serial killers, mental illness and social outcasts, the band stood out from others of the genre for their light hearted take on these topics. Following a hiatus between 2005 and 2011, the band reformed and continue to bring their dark humoured lyrics to live performances across the UK. They'll come to Carlisle's Old Fire Station on Saturday 6th May
