THE SPASE

(This article is from print publication in INCheshire magazine and Prestbury Living magazines' June 2015 issues as part of my "Cheshire Rocks" article.

The Spase come from the Halton area of Cheshire and are an Alternative Indie band.

Their sound is possibly influenced by the Madchester era of the 90s, as the sounds of The Stone Roses and Inspiral Carpets can be heard.  Ironically, the Carpets’ Tom Hingley described their music as “melodic and poetic”, the acoustic style with harmonious vocals are a joy to listen to.

Wax and P (both on vocals and guitars) are ‘the people’, while there are various members who they call ‘the ghosts’, random musicians who provide accompaniment when required.

They have played with The Zutons and also had a momentous gig at Spike Island in Widnes, where The Stone Roses played their historical appearance.  They have just released their debut album, ‘On A Cloud’, eleven tracks of pure acoustic delight.

On June 13th they supported Runcorn band The Fireflys at The Brindley in Runcorn.
Check the band out if you can on YouTube and Soundcloud and the official website, especially the tracks “Starchild” and “Butterfly”.
