Space Elevator Explain Why You Can't Download Their Songs

(Classic Rock) Controversial 70s-themed outfit Space Elevator have refused to release their self-titled debut album as a download. The band - featuring Whitesnake, Black Sabbath and Gary Moore bassist Neil Murray - set out their stall with love-it-or-hate-it single Elevator in January.

The album is now on sale, but only in vinyl and CD formats. That's because Space Elevator want listeners to focus on the entire musical experience, rather than consume individual tracks like soundbites.

Frontwoman The Duchess says: "We wrote and recorded with the ethos of Queen, Genesis, Fleetwood Mac and even Kate Bush. Those artists would record albums to be listened to as exactly that: an album.

"We want people to listen to the whole record from beginning to end, rather than cherrypicking favourite tracks, which is so common with downloads these days." more on this story
