THE VENTURES IN SPACE
Ok. I don't know how everybody feels about The Ventures here but I love them. Grimy, fuzzed out instrumental surf rock and more and it's finest. Their strongest release in my opinion is "The Ventures in Space" from 1963. This is on of the premier space rock albums. The Ventures take their fuzzed out distortion and strangeness to new heights. They coax their guitars to the extreme to produce some truly spaced out sounds. None of their instruments were electronically manipulated. They relied on feedback, distortion, and fuzz to create some of the most unearthly sounds ever heard in our solar system. All this while they retain their addictive go-go/surf dance beat! Check out "The Ventures in Space" today. It will satisfy all of your space-rock-a-go-go needs.
