Before going on to forming Spiritualized, Jason Pierce worked with Peter Kember (Sonic Boom/Spectrum) as Spacemen 3. Here we have a the first reissue since it’s original release in 1995. This album is of the first recording session they did together in 1984, over a decade before it’s release and shows their sparse, psychedelic rock in its formative years.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 27th June 2017
The psychedelic era was not just about paisley shirts and flowery scarves. The mentality behind it was traveling without leaving; exploring space by staying in your living room. Spacemen 3 were able to expand that with old sounds filtered through a new mentality and new drugs. The mentality was that through repetition you could put the body into a trance; it was all auditory. This was where the experiment began. Spacemen 3 recorded these songs before they even had a record contract or more than 10 songs, but they allow glimpses of the greatness to come.
