Praise Space Electric

Formed in Bristol 1989 by sam space and jesse electric,
toby praise joined the force and a powerful trio was born to perform
progressivly rockypure music with a love aim for the electric church.
Inspired by holy trinity much of their work is improvisational.
The first album was recorded in 1990 during a ten day Welsh cottage experience
and features some of the groups finest work, notably Black Rock and All My Love
The former, a ten minute trance-like oddessy into armegeddon, the latter,
a groovily tender yet apocalyptic love song. PSE toured extensively between 1990 and '95 often with the moonflowers as all members were also in that group.
  In 1992 they released 'Cosmic Funky Explosion EP(Pop God)' which was a gallant experimentation in soft psycadelic funk, though not as successful as their 1993 EP the groundbreaking 'diggin at the dig in' (Pop God). Made with members of (bristol latin trip hop stylists) Up, Bustle and Outy this record featured dance looped up mixes of the track and has been played out by DJs all over the world.
This track was taken from a somewhat muddy sounding yet interesting LP called Leaving Demons (Delerium Records '93). The band had been growing and by 1993 was often a nine piece group featuring two drum kits -due to toby finding his own replacement (called Errol) then re-joining to play along-;three extra vocalists; a synth wizard (Dieter Hertwig) and a hammond organist (Dr Mark Underhill) all of whom contribute to this album.
The band continued to tour and blew some minds etc until the Moonflowers moved to France in 1994 and spent the Summer recording. PSE took advantage of two weeks of this time and created their finest album 'Mushroom Jazz' (Delerium) . This record was  finished and mixed in Bristol at the end of 1995 and features playing from many other talents. Unfortunatly due to Sam living in Normandy, Toby in North Wales, Dieter in Austalia and Jesse in Bristol, the group found it impractical to continue. The album was finally released in Sept 1997 only  on CD and recieved no reviews in English.
Colours and Sounds may put together a PSE compilation in 2000 .
