Robot Rock du Jour: Space - Magic Fly (1977)

This video is totally out of control! Pictutre this: Robots rocking out on analog synths and live drums while a hot female humanoid dances seductively for your tripped out 1970s pleasure. French band Space clearly had it going on in 1977.

The audio player below comes pre-loaded with theĀ  12" b-side track, Fasten Seat Belt, which was ripped at 24/96 from my personal copy and converted to MP3 at 192kbps. Although Fasten Seat Belt is a funkier journey into the cosmos, it still totally rocks!

SCHEMATIC: High quality vinyl rips from their second LP, Just Blue...

Despite the sweeeeeet album artwork, the 1978 follow up LP Just Blue was a collection of seven underground disco tracks that were, IMHO, alchemical failures. The musicianship is certainly there, as is the trippy space-disco feel, but they stopped short of the philosopher's stone. On the whole, the album reminds me of a soft-core space disco porn soundtrack. Here are my favorite three of the seven tracks.
