the finest frontier
It’s a point of fact that no band, group, duo, collective, or general musical assemblage can do the whole “space rock” schtick as well as Parliament Funkadelic did. (Sorry, Ziggy, but you’re an also-ran.) However, this party night courtesy of our titular, fictional illuminator and her “people from Orion” (plus the real and actual Aleka, Glowkids & Fuse, Young London, and Damien Paul) doesn’t need any cosmic P-Funk mythology, what with all the laser light, CO2 cannons, and dancers.
Oh, and Vitamin Water.
Fuck yeah, Vitamin Water.
