Its 1982, French Synth-Disco Pioneers 'Space' have just sung their last hurrah and disbanded. Space Svengalli-producer and head-honcho JP Iliesco leaves his French homeland behind and begins his next chapter. After a meeting with the New-Romantic-blueprint-defining Rusty Egan in his 'Cage' record shop in the Kings Rd, JP decides UK is the place. Whilst moving and shaking his around the fringes of Soft Cell and Visage and then manoeuvring his team in Trident Studios he decides to sparkle some of the Space dust once more.
Enter stage left multi instrumentalist and all round unsung pioneer Roland Romanelli. Along with bass cohort Jannick Top and the Rhytmiques of Rusty Egan the team convene once more for the "Connecting Flight" sessions.
Fusing the sounds of the day with the melodies and Parisian grooves of Space the team turn in a fine 40 minute instrumental epic. Technology is breaking new barriers in music. You can almost hear the sound of the runners as the new gear is wheeled into Trident Studios and fired up for the first time to christen each track. The stand out from the sessions is the synth-led Connecting Flight.
