LATEST NEWS 23rd March 2000: The Space Monkeys are amazingly still without a record deal after parting company with Factory. Demos of their second album are currently being distributed which will no doubt have the major labels falling over each other for their signature!
"Why don't we put the first album out on Factory before we go to Warner Brothers?" - Andy McNevin Duff, Space Monkeys manager

CURRENT LINE UP: Richard McNevin-Duff (vocals and guitar), Chas Morrison (drums), Dom Morrison (bass), Tony Pipes (DJ, keyboards and samples)

At united MANCHESTER we strongly believe that The Space Monkeys are by far and away the most exciting band to have come out of Britain (let alone Manchester) in the late 1990's.

Formed in Middleton, in 1996, their debut album, 'The Daddy Of Them All' is already regarded as being a modern classic. Amazingly it sold over 70,000 copies in the USA alone (reaching No.50 in the Billboard charts), however the band failed to pick up any interest from the London-orientated press back home.

Unfortunately the Space Monkeys received very little P.R. and airplay as a result of signing to Manchester's small but famous Factory Records label instead of one of the majors. The frustration of Factory's lack of financial clout eventually led to The Space Monkeys departure from the label in 1999.

As we start the new Millennium, amazingly The Space Monkeys are still without a new contract despite having their music feature on the soundtracks for 'Sliding Doors' and Irvine Welch's 'Acid House'!

Their mix of Manc rock, acid house and beautiful ballards on 'The Daddy Of Them All' is unique and has only been surpassed by their recordings for their unreleased second album.

Despite some local radio airplay their single releases have surprisingly failed to chart in the UK: "Keep On Trippin' On" heralded the band's mix of acid house and rock in 1996 whilst "The Daddy Of Them All" spawned "Acid House Killed Rock'n'Roll", "Sugar Cane", "March Of The Scarecrows" and "Shine On". The track "Drug Soup" was included in the smash film 'Sliding Doors' and "Acid House Killed Rock'n'Roll" was used as the theme to Irvine Welch's 'Acid House'.

Without wanting to pigeon-hole The Space Monkeys, they can best be described as classic Stone Roses fused with acid house, 10cc and Oasis. In fact, Richard McNevin-Duff's vocals sound distinctivly similar to those of big Space Monkeys fan, Liam Gallagher, only better! (but whisper it quietly!)

Beg, borrow, buy or steal a copy of 'The Daddy Of Them All' and you can safely ditch the rest of your CD collection - you won't be needing it again!
