A crowning glory of minimal wave and underground cassette culture, Solid Space's legendary Space Museum finally receives an official vinyl press via Dark Entries.
Originally released via CS on the Essex early 80's cult imprint In Phaze, Space Museum has been one of those legendary recordings that make you feel like you have stumbled upon an entirely new world of music to dig deep into when you first discover it (though shortlived as they never commercially released anything else, yet there are rumors of more material in existence...) Space Museum offers the listener a tour around an incredibly vivid world of perfectly presented, low-fi synthpop and post-post-punk. Yet litters it with excellently used Doctor Who science fiction samples and themes that gives Solid Space's music a distinctly, low budget yet high dreaming feeling. One that for those who listen and have listened to for the past few decades will find still sends a shiver down the spine of to this day.
Time to turn off the YouTube rips and enjoy Solid Space how it really ought to be enjoyed, cut nice and loud to vinyl. Endless respect to Dark Entries for this one, reissue of the decade anyone?
