I’ll mostly use this as a place to post site updates, but there may be some other thoughts from time to time.

- Spacemen Pod Episode 3In the latest episode of Spacemen Pod, Mark Lascelles and I talk to Mark Refoy about the many Northampton bands he was in prior to joining Spacemen 3, as well as his memories of seeing the Spacemen as a fan. The next epsiode, where Mark tells us about his time in Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized, should be along sooner than usual. It was an absolute pleasure talking to Mark – he was so generous with his time, and really brought those times to life for those of us who weren’t there to enjoy them. Thanks Mark!
