SINGLES OF THE WEEK
SPACE: Avenging Angels
I reckon Liverpool rockers Space are under-rated, despite great singles such as Female Of The Species, Neighbour-hood and You And Me Vs The World from their debut album Spiders. And this latest effort shows they've no intention of straying from the darkly pop formula. Get in fast if you want to buy their limited edition white label 12in, which is limited to 1000 copies.
BERNARD BUTLER Bernard Butler (born 1 May 1970, in Stamford Hill, East London) is an English musician and record producer. Career
He first achieved fame in 1992 as the guitarist with Suede, at the time an instant phenomenon in UK pop music. : Stay
WHEN guitarist and songwriter Bernard Butler quit Suede to form McAlmont and Butler McAlmont and Butler are an English rock/soul music duo, comprising singer David McAlmont and guitarist Bernard Butler.
The duo formed in 1994. Both Butler and McAlmont had already experienced success in the music industry. at the beginning of 1995, many pop pundits predicted that Brett Anderson's band would struggle . And they did. While the duo scored a Top 10 smash with Yes, Suede languished in obscurity. Now, though, Bernard is having to play catch up again after Suede got their act together with the classic 1996 LP Coming Up. Now signed to Oasis label Creation, his first solo single - on which he plays all the instruments bar drums - sounds fabulous. Let's hope it's the first of many.
