Re: Space Station

Hey that's interesting. It must be some sort of synchronicity.
I've been contributing to this thread and the following is true;
I'm in an ensemble called MEME, one of whose members is
a fellow named Grant Richter. Now Grant is a friend and the
person responsible for turning me on to the Space Station in
the first place. What's so strange about that? Well Grant is also
a member of F/i and was on the track that you mentioned!

Hey...I don't know anything about this particular technology but this is just
the strangest thing...I was out doing late night grocery shopping when I got
this extreme jones to hear this tune from 1999 called "Space Station"
by Milwaukee band F/1, on a composition called Turn Century Turn which
I had but lost somehow while moving. And it's just this weird thing like I MUST
hear that song! It's a really excellent American attempt at Krautrock and it grooves.
So I get home and log on to see if it's at Amazon and low and behold here's
the loopers all talking about "Space Station"! Not the very same, but still...               quite a freaky coincidence don't ya think?
Cosmic "Space Station" synchronicity!
