Ornette Coleman - Free Jazz (Part 1)

This is the first part of Ornette Coleman's 1960 album Free Jazz. This record invented the free jazz genre and this album signified its position in the jazz word. I dont really want to say anything about the piece, all I'll say is that the record was released just over a year after Miles Davis' "Kind Of Blue", so, its pretty hip and radical man...

Becuase I cant be botherd stealing links of other blogs, typically "Taringa!" has provided the water to tame our thirst -and uploaded everything.

 I suggest getting,
This Is Our Music,
Free Jazz,
The Shape Of Jazz To Come and,
Science Fiction.

Or look on blogs or shop about amazon, NOT ITUNES, never Itunes.

Lordy Lord and The Goose - Live at Trof (OJJM1_L)

For the next Space Family: Orange Juice release, I have packaged together a live recording of John McKeown/Benjamin Joel playing a few of John McKeown's songs under "Lordy Lord and The Goose".

The record is a good introduction to John, which will be followed up with an album soon. It was recorded in Trof, Fallowfield in Manchester as apart of "Shakey Joe's Odd Ball" a multi media (allthough primarily music event), with a lot of brilliant singer song writers from manchester playing. Which I have a full recording of, I could compile an album of the recordings if there is any interest? As with a lot of Orange Juice records, this is relitavley Lo-Fi, so is the recording of the whole day/night. ANYWAY, talking with John, this was like this third gig? Most of these songs don't have names (therefore, named by me) and were mostly improvised anyway. I dont really know who this record sounds like, its just very good, slightly jazzy acoustic songs about animals and the weather, sang with an incredible murmer you have, probably, never heard before.

Make. Yourself. Happy.

Wednesday Winter,

John doesnt have a myspace or exist. All that will probably come into being sooner or later. Anything that could possibley do with contacting him, can be asked here, I guess.

Orange Juice / Shine Shut - Inside The Kings Warren (OJJH1)

Here's the other section of Space Family, Space Family: Orange Juice, which covers any brilliant Lo-Fi/Acoustic/Anything that isnt electronic, music.

This is a cassette I got from a friend through the post, its the second album he's put out as "Shine Shut" and deffinatley the best album he's done, Ive heard alot of his music over the past 2 years, all starting from finding a CD of his in a 'Borders' with 'Free' written all over it, I didnt know him at the time, a year later or so I saw a band play in a pub near me and fell in love with that band, turns out he was in the band blah blah. This is probabley the best album ive heard so far this year, deffinatley in the top 5. Everything from the songs themselves to the track listings and times is just perfect. Im probabley taking a bit away from this record by allowing it to be heard as MP3, but whatever. It sort of sounds like what I think R.E.M's very, very earliest recordings might sound like, or if Violet Femmes did a Daniel Johnston cover album between Violent Femmes and Hallowed Ground, Its perfect cassette music.

1st post/Tanooki - Artificial Colours (SFZH1)

Space Family Records is a record company set up by two of us.

Space Family's first release is an album created by a young man from Manchester. This is his first album and will probably be his last. It blends conventional chiptune with a more ambient side of music. It's sort of like a child's story in music form, check it out!
