Space Raiders are a big beat/electronic glam band from Middlesbrough in the North-East of England. They formed in 1997, making their debut at the Middlesbrough Arena on Halloween 1997. Their performance consisted of little more than the members of the band kitted out in fancy dress dancing to a prerecorded Digital Audio Tape. Despite this humble start, the band were signed to Fatboy Slim's Skint Records in Brighton and released their debut single Glam Raid in early 1998. The band went on to release their debut album, called Don't be Daft and a second album named Hot Cakes.
