Here’s the first of what we hope will be a series of Spacemen 3 themed podcasts, hosted by myself and Mark Lascelles. If you fancy listening to a couple of long time fans nattering on about their enthusiasm for the band, then this is for you! http://spacemen3.co.uk/pod/
Great live photo of Pete from the 6 March 1989 Hacienda gig, shared by Richard Davis (Facebook).
The C86 podcast has a recent two-part interview with Pete Kember which is well worth checking out. A fair bit on Spacemen 3, and quite a lot of other ground covered too. Part OnePart Two
From the Facebook group for the venue, a flyer and review of the Duchess of York gig from 28 February 1989.

The trailer for the forthcoming biopic of Alan McGee, Creation Stories, has just appeared on YouTube. And towards the end, McGee is seen wearing an iconic T-shirt. Very authentic looking, if it’s not an original, although I don’t think I’ve seen a long sleeve version before. McGee was a big fan of Spacemen 3, and …
Added a review of the 20 May 1988 ULU gig, taken from the 28 May Melody Maker. Shame it’s not a better one! With many thanks to @nothingelseon on Twitter.
