(Vocal/instrumental group, 1992–present)

Emerging out of London’s crucial acid jazz scene, Jay (Jason) Kay patented a brand of urban retro-funk with ecological lyrics on debut album Emergency On Planet Earth (1993). ‘Too Young To Die’ and ‘Blow Your Mind’ were chart hits as big as his trademark hats. The Return Of The Space Cowboy (1994) mined the same musical seam and did equal business. Travelling Without Moving (1996) was a modern masterpiece that subsequent albums have not matched.
