Recorded during their 1996 tour of the US,Round the Outside follows up Spaceheads eponymous debutCD of last year with a solid, no-nonsense groove forward.
For three months the duo of Andy Diagram (soaring trumpet dynamics, heavenly thumb-piano teasing and spine-tingling effects manipulations) and R.E. Harrison (drums and percussion of octapoid fervour) plunged headlong into a round the outside trip of America, descending on countless clubs.raves and radio stations.
This CD gives us the first chance to fully savour the live Spaceheads sound on disc, more rhythmic,unrelenting, melodic and inventive than ever before. The instrumentals selected for this release twist and fold in elements of
jazz. rock, dance and trance in an energy rush that blows new life into the saggy balloon of those genres.
Round the Outside was released in America by Dark Beloved Cloud.
The These Records/ space records edition is packaged in individually silkscreened, hand-stamped covers, designed by artist Mark Pawson.
