Live from Jodrell Bank: The Australian Pink Floyd + Hawkwind + The Time & Space Machine + The Lucid Dream
The multi award winning Live From Jodrell Bank series has announced a second Transmission for 2013 with The Australian Pink Floyd Show taking to the stage at the Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire.
Australian Pink Floyd is the biggest and most spectacular Pink Floyd show on the planet. This peerless tribute act will be playing a celebration show to mark the 40th anniversary of the release of the seminal Pink Floyd album, The Dark Side Of The Moon.
Having sold over 3 million tickets and performed in over 35 countries the show is one of the most in demand touring entities currently operating and incorporates a psychedelic light show modelled on the light shows used by Pink Floyd during their 1987 and 1994 world tours. The show includes a round screen with intelligent lights arranged around its perimeter. During a concert, movies and animations are displayed on-screen, complementing the band's light show. Inflatables such as the pig used by Pink Floyd during the Division Bell Tour and Skippy - the bands own giant pink kangaroo are frequently employed in the band's shows.
A unique element of the Live From Jodrell Bank shows has seen bands beaming their projections onto The University of Manchester's 76 metre Lovell telescope and The Australian Pink Floyd's spectacular audio visual production can be experienced at its finest in this unique environment.
Selling 5 million tickets worldwide and described by The Times as “The Gold Standard” and The Daily Mirror as “The Kings of the Genre”, The Australian Pink Floyd Show gave its first ever concert in Adelaide, Australia in 1988. Since then, they have performed in over 35 countries worldwide; played at David Gilmour’s 50th birthday celebration and were even joined on stage by Rick Wright. TAPFS is the leading and biggest show of its kind in the world.
Performing the music of Pink Floyd with note for note perfection, this critically acclaimed tribute show has been astonishing audiences worldwide. Striving to reproduce the Pink Floyd experience and bring the music to new audiences, the show continues to include a stunning light and laser show, video animations, state of the art high resolution LED screen technology and other special effects. To accompany these visuals are several large inflatables including a giant pig and their own distinct Pink Kangaroo.

The brainchild of Richard Norris TT&SM signed to Tirk Records in 2009. Their debut single, "Children Of The Sun" and "Zeitghost" was released in July 2009, followed by a second release, the "You Are The One" EP in October 2009, with the debut album 'Set Phazer To Stun' February 2010. The album made the top 100 of Rough Trade's albums of the year, and was followed by a string of Time and Space Machine remixes, for Tame Impala, Doves, Bryan Ferry, Cherry Ghost, Free School and many others. 2011 was spent writing the foliow up album, 'Taste The Lazer', which will be released on Tirk in spring 2012, preceded by the single 'Pill Party In India' in Feb 2012.
The Time and Space Machine is morphing into a live band, featuring Hammond organ, guitars, bass, drums, vocal harmonies and a retina stretching psychedelic light show. With a headline slot at the Green Man festival under their belt, and UK and European dates that followed, 2012 is the year the Time and Space Machine comes out of the studio and onto the wider stage.
The Time & Space Machine tour dates
Is it Krautrock? Is it No-Wave? Is it Psych? Cumbria four-piece The Lucid Dream certainly fall into the psychedelic rock camp, but exactly where you pigeon hole, it's not quite clear. With favourable comparisons to Suicide and The Jesus And Mary Chain though, there's certainly a shoegaze feel to their fuzzy sound.
They may also come from the North West, but there's nothing particularly northern about their sound. "They're from Carlisle but sound like they're from L.A.!" claimed fan Fun Lovin' Criminals frontman and DJ; Huey Morgan.
