Spacemen 3 biography
UK outfit SPACEMEN 3 was formed in Rugby, England in 1982; the first incarnation of the band consisting of Jason Pierce (guitar, vocals), Peter Kember (vocals, guitar) and Tim Morris (drums). This line-up soon folded though; but in 1984 Kember and Pierce hooked up with Nicholas Brooker (drums, percussion) and Pete Bain (bass) for a more stable line-up, and the act landed a record deal with Glass Records, who issued their debut album "Sound of Confusion" in 1986; a production strongly influenced by heavy psych rock.

Changes were afoot on many levels for the band though, having achieved something of a cult status after their debut album. Prior to the recording of their sophomore effort Brooker was ousted, replaced by Stewart Roswell (drums, percussion), and in the fall of 1987 "The Perfect Prescription" was released; an album that saw the band exploring more of a droning, minimalistic type of psychedelic rock. The album got Spacemen 3 international attention, and a European tour quickly followed.

After the tour Bain and Roswell left, replaced by William Carruthers (bass) and Jon Mattock (drums); and with this new line-up in place, and a record deal with Fire Records to boot, their third and most critically acclaimed production "Playing With Fire" saw the light in 1989. This creation is still a highly influential album for acts exploring musical landscapes within the ambient/droning space rock genre.

Despite critical and commercial success the band was falling apart at this time; with the two remaining founding members barely on speaking terms. When hitting the studio for the recording of their next album, Kember and Pierce recorded their compositions on their own; and the album was assembled with one half dedicated to the works of each of them. In 1991 the final product was issued as "Recurring"; but at that time Spacemen 3 had already folded; the main members already active in other groups and projects.


WHY IS THIS BAND LISTED AT PROGARCHIVES:
UK outfit SPACEMEN 3 managed to achieve commercial and critical success in their brief time together; and at the same time they expanded the borders of progressive, psychedelic music in general; and for minimalistic, droning space rock and ambient psychedelic rock in particular.

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Spacemen 3 arguably took the spirit of Hawkwind to even more narcotic extremes in the 1980s, being as they were a space rock band who, unlike their more coy predecessors in previous decades, made no bones about their extensive appreciation for and endorsement of narcotics. But don't make the mistake of thinking they were too intoxicated to produce interesting material; few neo-psychedelic units would have contemplated producing a song like Ode to Street Hassle, an esoteric rant juxtaposed with a bass groove reminiscent of the classic Lou Reed Song, for instance. Although it sounds like anaesthetised chaos on a first listen, give it more of a chance, because there's more going on here than meets the ear at first.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

3 stars This is SPACEMEN 3's third studio LP. Good album but not as good as their classic "The Perfect Prescription".

Things get started with "Honey" a slow paced tune with organ, acoustic guitar and bass. Psychedelic vocals a minute in. "Come Down Softly To My Soul" is another laid back song but better than the first one. Keys, guitar and bass open as reserved vocals come and go throughout. "How Does It Feel ?" opens with spoken words as a guitar line comes in and seems to echo. This continues throughout. The spoken words return after 1 1/2 minutes and another guitar comes in. Drums for the first time before 5 1/2 minutes. Vocals follow. Great track !

"I Believe It" opens with organ as spacey vocals come in. It kicks in around 2 1/2 minutes to a fuller sound. "Revolution" is my favourite. It's full of attitude and life. Guitars are ablaze as drums join in. Vocals follow. Bass 5 minutes in then it speeds up and an all out assault is the result. "Let Me Down Gently" brings us back down to the mellow side as organ, bass and softly sung vocals come in. This is slow and psychedelic. "So Hot (Wash Away All Of My Tears)" is a cool song with the focus on the fragile vocals. "Suicide" is powerful as the guitars create a wall of sound. It's actually pretty high pitched and somewhat annoying considering it's an 11 minute song. "Lord Can You Hear Me ?" is a laid back tune with gentle piano and soft vocals. Some guitar 1 1/2 minutes in.

Just doesn't touch me like the previous album, but well worth the 3 stars.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Jason Pierce and Peter Kember are the leaders of this band and pictured on the album cover of "The Perfect Prescription".This album and "Playing With Fire" were very significant records in the late eighties. Alternative Press describes them as having "...a British style and an American heart". The music is very psychedelic with fuzzed out guitars, drugged out vocals and spacey soundscapes. Let's just say the Krautrock spirit is alive and well on this album. Drugs and spiritual themes seem to be their obsession but there is no denying the talent of these space cadets. In fact Jason Pierce would go on to form SPIRITUALIZED and continue the themes started on these SPACEMEN 3 albums. Please check out "Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space", a very significant record from 1997 by SPIRITUALIZED.That album has vintage keys, strings,horns and noisy guitars much like this one. On this record we can hear farsifa, violin, sax, trumpet and organ as well as the usual bass, percussion and guitars.

This recording is truly a trip and I love it. I came to know it years ago through James Unger's (loserboy) website. He's so into the Psychedelic scene, and this was one of many I purchased back in those days. I didn't even know until getting info on this album that my version (a 1996 edition) has four bonus tracks.They don't specify that, and I thought they were part of the original recording.

"Take Me To The Other Side" is led by drums, guitar and bass as he pleads "Come on take me for a ride, take me to the other side". Very repetitive but oh so good. "Walkin' With Jesus" opens with organ as almost spoken vocals come in. Bass followed by strummed guitar and drums follow as this contrast continues. Love the lyrics here. Amazing tune. "Ode To Street Hassle" might be my favourite on here. It's like the theme from the previous song is continued as he talks about walking with Jesus and talking to him. Different vocalist on this one. Again I love the lyrics. Bass and synths are prominant. "Ecstacy Symphony" features spacey synths that would make TANGERINE DREAM proud. It blends into "Transpaent Radiation (Flashback)" which is a RED KRAYOLA re-worked song. The original was released in 1967. Violin and strummed guitar lead as bass joins in.The vocals before 1 1/2 minutes are almost spoken.This is melancholic to say the least. For many this is the best track on here. Great lyrics.

"Feel So Good" features guitars, horns and bass with almost spoken vocals. Very laid back. A second vocalist comes in. "Things'll Never Be The Same" has this dissonant, fuzzed out guitar. Very psychedelic with vocals that have attitude. One of my favourites. "Come Down Easy" is a catchy tune about getting high. "Call The Doctor" is darker with almost whispered vocals. Spacey organ after 2 minutes. "Soul 1" is an instrumental with keys and guitar standing out. "That's Just Fine" is a top three tune for sure. Check out the intricate guitar ! "Starship" is a re-worked MC5 tune from 1969. Check out the guitar feedback as drums come in. Guitar follows. Great sound ! This song was on an EP of theirs called "Transparent Radiation" released the same year as this album (1987). It turns chaotic and freaky. Love the guitar 3 1/2 minutes in to end it. "Ecstacy" is over 8 1/2 minutes of Klause Schulze-like spacey music. Very cool.

An excellent and important addition to any Psychedelic collection.
