Product Notes

Though Columbus, Ohio's Quakspace has been bill as a spacerock band, their very good debut CD is actually that and more. Of the 14 songs on the disc only two (live songs) are overt space jams. HOWEVER, the rest of the disc, though very song oriented, is backed by fascinating playing that is adventurous, hynotizing, and even in some cases comes across as structured improv. If Quarkspace's music could be compared to anyone the most obvious is Peter Gabriel. One of the things I love most about Gabriel's music is he does great songs with exciting music behind it. This is how most of the Quarkspace songs struck me. Interestingly enough, band member Paul Williams indicated to me some surprise over the interest he's received in the songs. Apparently most of the band's music (seems they have many hours recorded) really is on the intrumental space side. But these songs really are very good so I hope the band doesn't abandon them completely. So it sounds like this is a band that can be counted on for some exciting *variety*. Though the CD is highly song oriented I can't recommend this disc enough to space fans. Hell, who doesn't love hearing great Daevid Allen songs and then wild way out Gong jams (don't answer that! :-) ) Anyway, I'm not connected with the band in any way, but they are local to me and deserve to be heard. If interested, email the band at pwdood@quarkspace.com'. - Jerry Kranitz, Aural Innovations.
