The Quietus - A new rock music and pop culture website


LISTEN: Andy Votel Space Rock Mix
John Doran , July 6th, 2017 09:15

Our pal from Finders Keepers and Twisted Nerve, Andy Votel, has made us a mixtape of internationally sourced space rock oddities and psychedelic cosmic deep cuts, and you can listen to it above.

Andy published the first part to this mix on the Oi Polloi blog recently along with a very good essay on the history of French space rock (or Gallic Magnetic as he has it).

He is DJing a 'History Of Space Rock' set at the Blue Dot festival on Friday night at the Jodrell Bank observatory in Cheshire. The festival also features performances from Pixies, Hawkwind, Orbital, Moonlandingz, Jane Weaver, The Comet Is Coming and Andrew Weatherall.
