Kelvin Brown w/ Graham Massey - Space Race Special

Manchester, 02.12.18

This month Kelvin Brown is joined by Graham Massey for a two hour special focusing on the music, politics and social legacy of the space race. As well as being a founding member 808 State and sometime writer / producer for Bjork (amongst many, many other projects), he’s also a lifelong obsessive about both music and the universe that exists outside of our earth’s orbit.

This two hour journey through the space race will feature archive sound, excerpts from speeches and news footage during the period of the space race and contemporaneous as well as new music.
