Epony­mous first al­bums on their own la­bels cer­tainly get the name across! Three mem­bers of the band were in­volved with the West End show, We Will Rock You and when that fi­nally came to the end of its run, it was time to be­gin a new project and Space El­e­va­tor is ex­actly that. Gui­tarist David Young and vo­cal­ist ‘The Duchess’ wrote some fine songs to­gether, and this al­bum be­gan to take shape. The Duchess was in Curved Air and brought the drum­mer along with her to com­plete the band. And what a band they are – this is hard-hit­ting com­mer­cial rock at its best, as the songs are re­ally strong. Ex­cel­lent pro­duc­tion also plays its part, as does the bass work from Neil Mur­ray, so no won­der Brian May likes this band so much. Young is a very talented gui­tarist and the cat-suited Duchess can re­ally de­liver a song. And since she’s such a dy­namic per­former, it’s well worth catch­ing a live Space El­e­va­tor show.
