Spacemen 3
Live In Europe 1989

Live in Europe 1989 does exactly what it says on the tin and captures soon-to-disband space rock legends Spacemen 3 over four nights on their final European tour and showcases a short lived four piece line up of the band. Less ragged than their earlier Performance live document, there's still plenty of off the cuff drug-fuelled experimentation and more lyrical references to the lord than you'll ever need.  

Spacemen 3
Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To

Originally released as a bootleg, the recordings here known as Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To are demo recordings from 1986, and they capture the nascent Spacemen 3 well on their way to becoming the psychedelic behemoths they ultimately were. This reissue, for CD and double LP, features remastered audio and is out on Space Age Recordings.

Spacemen 3
The Perfect Prescription

Reissue of Spacemen 3's second album, which was a wide eyed clash of droning guitar fuzz, psychedelic avant-garage propulsion and heady atmosphere. The line up shift had given rise to an evolved sound, allowing for more space to breathe, casting those shimmering tremolos further out into the stratosphere.

Spiritualized
And Nothing Hurt

The new Spiritualized album really is just the work of one man, Jason Pierce, who wrote and recorded the album on a laptop in a small room in his east London home. Yet Pierce is so meticulous that he found a way of making the record sound like a studio session, and only things bigger than he could get up his stairwell were recorded in a studio. So, it's going to be interesting to hear how a band with such grandiose ideas as Spiritualized sound with such severe constraints on the recording process.

Spiritualized
Fucked Up Inside

'Fucked Up Inside' was initially a limited run record released to Spiritualized diehards in 1993, capturing his live show on record for the very first time. It coincided with the release of 'Lazer Guided Melodies', a notably minimalist entry in the Spirutalized discography. This reissue contains live performances of three songs from that record, as well as cuts from 'Pure Phase' and a Spaceman 3 cover, 'Walking With Jesus'.

Spacemen 3
Sound of Confusion

Always good to see the Spacemen 3’s Sound Of Confusion again. This Fire edition of the legendary acid rockers’ 1986 debut LP is all present and correct, four originals and three covers. Regardless of who’s written the songs the 3 still give ‘em hell, locking down their hyperreal Velvet Underground sound with a visceral bite unmatched by their scores of imitators. More than three decades on from its release Sound Of Confusion still blows the competition out of the water.

Guitar Loops

Here is a unique thing  - Mr Jason Pierce of Spiritualized made it in 2005 and unlike his normal band's gospel-ey space rock, it has him playing around with guitar loops. It consists of two long improvisations, one on each side, with a kind of ordered chaos for the listener to interpret. First time on vinyl and a must for Spacemen 3/Spiritualized fans.    

Spacemen 3
Recurring

Recurring was the final album by Spacemen 3, originally released in 1991. The duo of Pete Kember aka Sonic Boom and Jason Pierce had pretty much stopped collaborating with each other before the album was recorded. This meant half the album was recorded by Kember and half by Pierce. The only track they both played on was the cover of Mudhoney’s When Tomorrow Hits. Kember went carried on making music under the Sonic Boom moniker whilst Pierce left to form Spiritualized. Features the classic, Big City.

Spacemen 3
Playing With Fire

The Rugby psychedelicists’ third album, released in 1989, takes their minimal sound to various extremes. Peter Kember aka Sonic Boom provides the harsh fuzz of single Revolution and the blissed-out pulsations of How Does It Feel?, and there are several examples of Jason Pierce’s proto-Spiritualized acid gospel anthems. The lengthy instrumental Suicide pays tribute to Alan Vega and Martin Rev with monomaniacal single-chord tunnel vision. Black vinyl reissue, or double CD featuring bonus tracks.
