Space – Hastings Pier 24th January 1970.


Anyone remember this band? Lots of bands called Space. A French band called Space had a big hit with Magic Fly but pretty sure this has no connection, unless anyone knows different? Just remember the indie band called Space, who had a hit with Female Of The Species but that was 90’s.

Andre Martin… I do not remember this band at all – I was working The Ridge Club that Saturday Night/Sunday Morning ! and with free sandwiches
