Spacek

Biography

South London, England’s Spacek was the definitive exemplory case of the blurry series between trip-hop and R&B, and main (if unwitting) instigators of alternative R&B prior to the term was popular. The trio produced in the middle-’90s; bassist, vocalist, and mind songwriter Steve Spacek (blessed Steve Light) was presented to guitarist Edmund Cavill by way of a shared friend, and previous MC Morgan Zarate (aka Morgan Spacek) was uncovered through Spacek’s administration as a appropriate drummer for the clothing. By the finish of 1998, the group was agreed upon to Isle Blue within the U.K. Training from the Clapham studio room that Steve Spacek constructed after finding a submitting deal in the first ’90s (he created and composed for Stex, amongst others), the group produced a fair quantity of hype through the latter 1 / 2 of 1999, whenever a white label of the first one, “Eve,” circulated among DJs. Having a lush defeat, a simple but melodic bassline, gliding strings, and Steve Spacek’s silky vocals, it became apparent which the their wish to “provide spirit music and R&B current” will be satisfied. The group released a set of albums: Curvatia (Isle, 2001) as well as the relatively stripped-down Classic Hi-Tech (Studio room !K7, 2003). Steve Spacek eventually went single under his very own name, utilized the aliases Blackpocket and Defeat Spacek, and documented with Tag Pritchard as Africa HiTech. Zarate was energetic with solo produces on Hyperdub along with a relationship with A-Cyde once we Are Shining.

#Quote
1 When I started out in independent films in the early 70s, we did everything for the love of art. It wasn't about money and stardom. That was what we were reacting against. You'd die before you'd be bought.
2 There's a real danger in trying to stay king of the mountain. You stop taking risks, you stop being as creative, because you're trying to maintain a position. Apart from anything else that really takes the fun out of it.
3 My cousin, Rip Torn, persuaded me not to change my name. You shouldn't change what you are in the search for success.
4 [on why she did not want to appear in The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)] I asked if they could use some backflashes instead. I enjoyed the sequel, but hated my role in the first film. I was awful.
5 [Parade magazine, April 1, 2001] I had a dozen years to act before starting a family then found that motherhood dwarfed everything else. Once or twice a year, I take a project that appeals to me for its redeeming social value.
6 [on her daughter Schuyler Fisk becoming an actress] The business has been good to me. I would be a hypocrite if I tried to convince her not to do this.
