LSSN018 - 7"
** REPRESS ON SILVER VINYL 300 copies only!!. A cult icon, The Space Lady has been performing her delicate, celestial songs for over 30 years, and yet 2nd September 2013 marks the day of her very first 'official' release, 'Major Tom / Radar Love', released on limited 7" with download, via Night School Records. Listen below... http://soundcloud.com/nightschool/major-tom-from-lssn018-1/s-6Cg8V The Space Lady began her odyssey on the streets of Boston in the late 70s, then San Francisco ten years later, playing versions of contemporary pop music with an accordion and dressed flamboyantly, transmitting messages of peace and harmony. Following the theft and destruction of her accordion , The Space Lady invested in a then-new Casio keyboard, complete with a phase shifter and headset mic, birthing an otherworldly new dimension to popular song that has captured the imaginations of the underground and its leading exponents ever since. The legend of The Space Lady has continued to grow in the 21st century. Originally featured on Irwin Chusid’s landmark 'outsider' compilation Songs In The Key Of Z, then on mixes by Erol Alkan and John Maus, this music has transcended genre, style and fashion, opening up hearts and minds along the way. 14 years ago The Space Lady packed away her Casio synth and silenced her distinctive voice, retiring from the streets of San Francisco. Now, more than 30 years after her initial forays on Haight-Ashbury Harvard Square and Haight Ashbury, she has surfaced with the first ever official release of her timeless, startling, haunting music and, even more remarkably, has re-started her live career. Now in Colorado, The Space Lady continues to spread her message of peace, harmony and love.
