When swedish astronaut Christer Fuglesang went up to space 2006, his imfamous reputation as "the astronaut who never gets to go to space" finally died, and Sweden turned into space fever. Inspired by this, and by listening to music from the so called space-rock genre from the 70's, The Movements started to work on a theme album about the swedish space traveler. During 2008 and 2009 the band has been recording in their own Parkeringshuset Studio. The result is a musical story of space-rock noise, kraut-rock and swedish folk-music.
August 7:th 2009 according to plans, Christer Fuglesang will once again go to space on the shuttle Discovery STS-128.
In connection to this, The Movements will release the album For sardines space is no problem, named after the motto of Fuglesangs' class at astronaut education at NASA. The album will be released by Austrian label Sulatron Records.
The Movements have during the recording been in contact with Swedish National Space Board to ask if Fuglesang wanted to participate himself on the album. Unfortunatly he hadn't got the time for that. When asked about if he can bring the record to space though, the SNSB has stated that he will bring an i-pod.
