Information/Write-up

A progressive rock outfit. They achieved a minor hit when their debut 45, Keep On Movin', climbed to No. 83 in Canada's Top 100 on 15th January 1972. Little-known Canadian-only hard rock LP in the vein of Next and Christmas. Despite a visible industry ad campaign, Aaron Space did not sell at the time of release and is very rare.

Gene Falbo: bass guitar, vocals

Produced and engineered by John Stewart
Executive Producer: John Pozer
Recorded at Eastern Sound, Toronto, Ontario

Aaron Space was a Canadian psychedelic rock band from Toronto, performing art rock with a touch of psychedelia and a pinch of 70's hard rock. The songs are energetic, fun, and the guitar is beautiful.

They released their first single, "Keep On Movin'," which featured Lisa Garber on bg vocals, b/w "The Visitor" in the fall of '71 to mixed reviews. It eeked its way up to #83 on some strong support from Toronto radio, where it stayed for three weeks. Recorded at Eastern Sound in Toronto and produced by John Stewart, their eponymous debut album followed early the next year, with the single, "Marsha" b/w "She Smiles" close behind.

After a series of short tours around central Canada, plans were being made for a follow-up album, some songs had been written, and some time in the studios had been spent. But with their deal with Warner on the brink of ending, the band imploded, and everyone went on to individual projects.

What a great LP. The band was actually from Sudbury and recorded this LP in Toronto. My brother in law Johnny Falbo, his uncle is Gene Falbo who later went on to Jackson Hawke from Sault St. Marie. They had two LP's on the Columbia label. My buddy Paul DiSalle, his uncle is Bob DiSalle. Jake Thomas was in Bucstone Hardware before this band. He still plays around northern Ontario and lives in North Bay now. Dave Moulaison is still here in Sudbury.
