"Oxford Wheatsheaf 6 February"

Space Heroes Of The People have
always been about balance. Their
music is live enough to feel organic,
and programmed enough to seem
inhuman; the sound is minimalist
enough to be hypnotic, but compact
enough to class them as an ace pop
band. It’s a tough tightrope to walk,
but tonight they nonchalantly saunter
across, possibly stopping midway for
a somersault or two. Perhaps it’s the
live vocals; perhaps it’s the
unexpectedly meaty Sabbathesque
half time sections; perhaps it’s the
righteously hefty sound that the
engineer coaxes from them, but this
is a superb set. We just can’t shake
the image of Maggie Philbin coming
onstage during ‘Barbie Is A Robot’ to
explain what a vocoder is, though. - Nightshift
