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.
That title is just … wow. Ok. Highs, Lows And Heavenly Blows (hi mum) originally dropped in 1994 and now gets a reissue via Medical Records (Pram, Martin Jenkins). The main protagonist in Spectrum is ex-Spacemen 3 member Sonic Boom, and the influence of that group’s gnarled psychedelic fantasia is very much on display here. These trippy soundscapes meet in the middle of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Orb and Screamadelica-era Primal Scream.

Spectrum is Sonic Boom, who is Pete Kember, who was in Spacemen 3. Which is to say that this is a lifelong psych traveller we are dealing with here. These cosmic recordings were performed live in front of an enthused crowd in Tokyo, and things get good and spacey. Live Chronicles Volume 2 is reissued by Space Age Recordings, with artwork from Hajime Ouchi.
Spectrum is Sonic Boom, who is Pete Kember, who was in Spacemen 3. Which is to say that this is a lifelong psych traveller we are dealing with here. These cosmic recordings were rained down upon grateful audiences in Newcastle and London in the very early 90’s, and they get pretty ecstatic. Live Chronicles Volume 1 is reissued by Space Age Recordings.
