23.03.2014 Republica, Space - Academy, Islington, London
Apparently it was Space's 20th anniversary, although Wikipedia seems to think they formed in 1993, and neither band released anything until 1995
Fifth time watching Republica since their reformation and comeback in 2010 (I was on the guestlist again, which is always a pleasure) and first time watching Space too which was nice, as they were a band I had always admired but never had the opportunity to catch live.
Space have a new album out - Attack of the Mutant 50ft Kebab - which is good in a comedy-horror kind of way. It's their first one in 10 years and they played quite a few new songs as well as a number of better-known ones from their earlier days. Sadly no Cerys Matthews on the Ballad Of Tom Jones - she appeared as an almost-dismembered head on a big screen above the band.
The setlist was:
The Ballad of Tom Jones
Attack of the Mutant 50ft Kebab
Female of the Species
She's in Love With the Boy in a Bodybag
Me & You vs The World
From Rush Hour With Love
Out of the Darkness
Drop Dead Gorgeous
Ready To Go
Ready To Go (again)

I think I'm meant to do an "About" here but I think you'd be more interested in seeing a random seagull.
