Looks like Spiritualized are in the process of re-releasing their first four albums. Check out their official website, where you can order Lazer Guided Melodies and various other bits of tie-in merchandise.
Just got hold of this bundle of poster zines from Sonic Cathedral, one of which includes at short joint interview with Pete Kember and Dean Wareham about the final days of Spacemen 3. Lots of other stuff as well, and only £6 in the UK. You can get them from here.
It doesn’t mention Spacemen 3 by name unfortunately, but it’s still nice to be able to add the ticket for the 20 May 1988 ULU gig to its page. This was Pete Bain’s last gig, and although Rosco had left a little while before, he made a return here while the band were still without […]
I forgot to add a translation for this article when I first posted it, so I’ve added it now. As with most of the translations, it’s been done via Google Translate, which tries its best but the results could clearly be improved on. If there are any native speakers with time on their hands, I’d […]

Today started with me noticing that Ade Matthews had posted a few interesting clippings from the Leeds Student Independent Newspaper, including a review of the Oblivious Participant bootleg CD compilation of the first two Spacemen 3 singles, on the Spacemen 3 Appreciation Society Facebook group. All the bits that Ade was posting were from the […]
I’ve posted the brief ZigZag interview from January 1986, the earliest printed piece of Spacemen 3 coverage that I know about.
