(NB: this is about the [[Music/{{Space}} band]].)

* CreatorBacklash: although it was released on an EP, the lead track of which was 'Bad Days', Space's then record company sent [=CDs=] of their cover of 'We Gotta Get Out Of This Place' to radio stations, and it ended up being the song that featured in a car advert, got played on the radio and on TV, and had a video made for it. The band were not pleased and felt that the record company had manipulated them. 'Dark Clouds' also incurred CreatorBacklash, probably because it came out around the time Jamie was having a nervous breakdown and Tommy Scott had lost his voice, plus Tommy sees it as being 'too wacky'. Before they split up, they played a garage rock version of 'Dark Clouds' at a couple of their gigs, and have now revived the track with 'La Bamba' tagged on at the end.
** Jamie has also admitted in post-Space interviews that he didn't like ''Tin Planet'', while Tommy admitted he 'disappeared up his own arse' while making that album.
* CreatorBreakdown: the band suffered a communal one in 1997. Jamie went into rehab after having a nervous breakdown, and missed the first American tour, while Tommy lost his voice for two months due to stress. Franny Griffiths has also stated in interviews that the atmosphere among the band members was particularly strained during the tour of Asia in autumn of that year, and that Andy Parle in particular was miserable and desperate to go home.
* CrossDressingVoices: Tommy on 'Avenging Angels'. He stated in interviews that he was singing it in the voice of Marlene Dietrich, particularly in the middle section.
* DevelopmentHell / KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Love You More Than Football''. Oh boy, ''Love You More Than Football''. Originally scheduled for release in spring 1999, the release date was pushed back to autumn 1999, then to 2000. In early 2000, a single, 'Diary Of A Wimp', was released, and a tracklisting appeared on the band's website. 'Gravity', which had been premiered on the Bad Days tour in 1998, was a potential next single (and is featured on one of the ''Greatest Hits'' albums). However, the album itself ended up being shelved due to clashes between the band and the record company (see below). Fortunately, some fans managed to get bootlegs of the songs, and the tracks are all now available on Youtube as well.
* ExecutiveMeddling: one of the many reasons why ''Love You More Than Football'' was never released and why the band eventually left Gut Records. Amongst other things, the record company disapproved of Edwyn Collins producing the album and tried to get other producers in, to the band's annoyance, as well as trying to pressure the band into making poppier music. In Tommy's words, Gut were trying to make Space 'more like the Beautiful South'.
** A positive example is 'Female Of The Species'. It came about when the band were messing around during a drinking session - Tommy admits to being pissed while recording the vocals, hence why he sings 'more deadli''er'' than the male' - but the record company liked it so much, it became a single.
* FanNickname: Ginger Space for Jamie, as a ShoutOut to the Music/SpiceGirls.
** 'Franchete' for Franny, due to his resemblance to Creator/DannyTrejo on the spring 2013 tour.
* MissingEpisode: ''Love You More Than Football'' (see DevelopmentHell above). It's also the last album before the split with Jamie on it, and also the last album with lead vocals by other band members besides Tommy (or instrumentals), until ''Attack of the Mutant 50ft Kebab''.
* OneOfUs: Tommy collects sci-fi movie figurines and shops at Forbidden Planet. Franny, meanwhile, is an avid gamer - he once stated that the best present he'd ever received from a fan is a SonicTheHedgehog game, and he's also into VideoGame/CallOfDuty and Pro Evolution Soccer.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: 'Female Of The Species', the song that made Space famous, almost ended up as a B-side. Besides ''Love You More Than Football'', Space also had a set of unreleased tracks, some of which they premiered at gigs in 2004-2005, which were going to be released under the title of ''Flies'' after ''Suburban Rock 'n' Roll''. Sadly, the band split before this could happen.
