Candyfloss Princess great album ...love anything guitary and loud. and this ticked the boxes. love Swashbuckler, Shroud (could listen to Shroud on a loop) , Bleed us, Somersault and Pigs Lips to name a few. (Like how PIgs Lips is such a fast moving track then slows down at the end. 😁 Favorite track: Swashbuckler.

about

Well, it's been a long long time.......

We've had numerous requests over the years to actually put some music online.
And...
It's taken an absolute age to get together, but here, at last, is...
An actual Gorgeous Space Virus album!

---

Gorgeous Space Virus......
The band famously described as sounding like...
---"a runaway juggernaut crashing into Heathrow Airport at night"---

The band that made a famous A&R man from a well-known London Record Company confess that...
---"I absolutely adore you guys, but if I were to sign you, my boss would definitely give me the sack"---

For those who like are interested in this kind of information...
The band was friendly with various rock luminaries, such as...
Apollo 440, The Senseless Things, Swervedriver, Smashing Pumpkins, Eat, The Go-Betweens, Flowered Up, Mint 400, The Wonderstuff, Peach, Mambo Taxi, The Pixies, The Voodoo Queens, Tool, Primal Scream, Cornershop, Ride & Blur.

The band did gigs with bands such as Thee Hypnotics, The Faith Healers, Shiva Effect, The Sea, Daisy Chainsaw, Collapsed Lung, Strobe, Placebo, Breed, Midway Still and Thin White Rope...

ACCOLADES...
NME - Band Of The Week - July 1993
GLR Radio - Band Name Of The Week - Feb 1994

--- "where the Hell did this lot come from - God, I've waited a long time to say that!"---
FELIX MAGAZINE wrote.....
---"An orgy of sounds, explosive, abrasive and devastating; Joe the Lion guitar snarls, power drill guitar screeches—these guys really know how to redefine their instruments. Changes in tempo and swirling Tardis-like effects play with your consciousness and lift your feet off the ground. It's like being given a training course at NASA, except it happens in the space of forty minutes"---

Anyway, without further ado - here's the album.

Hope it was worth the wait.
(in gold)...

Love,
GSV (ajay, vid, phil, jack, nick)

about

Gorgeous Space Virus London, UK

Many Years Ago an unruly and unhallowed band ceaselessly toured the various venues & toilets of our proud nation - but, for one reason or another, never managed to actually release any music.
Until now!

As far as we are aware, only 1 or 2 of the original members continues to make music. Nick (gtr) now trades under the name ZEST HOPE SUCCESSES.
