The Time and Space Machine cover Amy Winehouse's 'Rehab' for Q magazine tribute
The Time and Space Machine have recorded a cosmic cover of Amy Winehouse's 'Rehab' for a tribute CD that is being given away with the August issue of Q Magazine, out Monday July 2nd. The Quietus reckon it sounds like "Lou Reed's transformer if he'd been imbibing pep pills in the sun, rather than giving off the whole mardy New York smackhead vibe." Other artists featured include the Cribs, Manic Street Preachers and St.Etienne.

Green Man Festival 2012
Colours swirl, patterns collide... The Time and Space are bringing their psychedelic circus to the Green Man 2012.
Initially a solo project for Grid/Beyond the Wizards Sleeve man Richard Norris, TTASM has now expanded into a 5 piece live band. Expect Hammond freakouts, backwards guitars, vocal harmonies and a dash of phazer, all laid over tight but loose psych/ motorik grooves. Add a retina expanding psychedelic lightshow and get ready to fly.
The Time And Space Machine - Pill Party In India (Release date 6th Feb 2012)
'Pill Party In India' is rich with the energetic twang of Exotica carried down a highway of fast-paced bongos and live drums with interludes of blips, wiggles and ghostly soundtrails. Absolutely stunning.
The first remix comes from our pet love, Psychemagik. It's a supurb bit of work by our friends from the cosmic forest; The bass is chunky, mesmerising sounds fly at you glorously in superwide stereo and there's some cracking vocal samples added to great effect too!
To clean up, Mojo Filter delivers his 'Om Nama Shiva Remix.' Think squelching acid basslines under traditional plucked Indian instrumentation, with strings and on-point production values and you're about there. This has to be heard to be believed! A sheer joy!
Watch out for the 5 piece TTASM band, complete with mind frying light show, coming soon to a festival near you!

New Masters Volume 2 - Presents The Time And Space Machine
When it comes to being a man of many talents there are few to equal Richard Norris. DJ, producer, musician, audiovisual artist, A&R man, author and journalist, his is a career of many twists and turns which have always seen him at the forefront of pushing new ideas forward and championing diversity and innovation. As 2010 closes Richard is focusing most of his energy based around three projects: ‘Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve’, ‘The Grid’ and ‘The Time And Space Machine’.
As the next installment of the Nang Masters Series (Volume 1 was Bottin), our main protagonist delivers his ‘Time And Space Machine’ themed compilation. Gathering his favourite tracks from some of the coolest Indie labels around, each track is either a remix or a specially commissioned edit.
Things open up with Richard’s cheeky Pink Floyd-esque take on ‘Neeve’ from Permanent Vacations prime movers, Woolfy Vs Projections. Mining the 60’s psychedelic seam that runs through all of Richards’ music we then get the groovy ‘Bones’ from A Mountain of One. If Richard on this album is one part Psychedelic and one part Balearic then his third part would be 70’s and Disco. You can hear his slick grooves and sounds on tracks such as Space’s ‘Carry On Turn Me On’, Visti and Meyland’s ‘Stars’ (an Andrew Weatherall favourite) and the slow-mo disco of Bastilla’s ‘Ghosts’.
Every album needs down-tempo, chilled and Balearic moments and here we have three fine examples; the beautiful ‘March of The Dawn’ by the Mummers, the SoCal summer sheen of ‘Chemise’ by Sorcerer and ‘Ghetto Glamour’ by Chris Coco’s City Reverb project.
Rounding off the master stroke of influences – which all sound dispersed while all retaining that magic, unifying Richard glow – are the trippy ‘Different Light’ by Psychic Sherpa, the earthy ‘Polaris’ by the Yellow Moon Band and the ‘This Little Night’ by the most clever Pollyn.
All in all a fine listening experience and a great way to spend an hour of audio delight. Stay tuned for more from the Masters series and of course more from Richard, in any of his guises.
