Youre The One - Sonic Boom (2) - Spectrum (Vinyl a Comment. Sonic Boom - Spectrum Newer Post Older Post Home. According to the results I get using the "search" function there is no open thread on Spacemen 3. I would make the case that Sound of Confusion is their best album, although not many agree with me. This is perhaps my favorite Spacemen 3 song, "Losing Touch With My Mind": partially I think for the extrinsic reason Album) it's the first song on their first album. And also because I see them categorized as "space rock" and for a long time that made no sense to me at all, because of the order in which I got into them, Album) with Playing With Fire which isn't really space rock at all. This album doesn't get the praise the next two do, so I didn't get it until I started to be more of a fan and wanted everything. But it's easily as good as the second album and in many ways better than the third. And it has space rock sounds on it, that wooshy woosh stuff is very space rock. But what I most like about it is the groove--they have their own groove and this is where it is most prominent probably. But they're also one of the only bands who can do covers that are just as satisfying as their originals. Because any song that has few chords and is repetitive is more or less as good as any other, what they have is a unique drony feel that is absolute genius, and is most prominent on the first Album), more so than any others--and they started using different techniques to develop a groove--tremolo repeating figures and keyboards--which sound great in their own right but actually started to dilute their groove a little bit; although that later stuff is the sound many fans associate with them pre-eminently, to me the groove is supreme on Sound of Confusion and the rest is mere footnotes, in some ways. Anyway, their groove is magic, I think. I don't know what it is--I think of other bands with a unique, minimal, repetitive groove, like Velvet Underground, Stooges, and Can, and it's not the same thing. And the dope connection--much of it is very explicitly about dope, and the groove really fully reveals itself when listened to when altered. It's like a magic thing, I wish I could explain or describe it, the Spacemen 3 groove really is like this secret discovery of a hidden potential of rock and roll, and it's so close to so many other things that I don't think anyone has ventured an opinion like this before, since it's not really defendable. I'm almost embarrassed to advance it myself as I can't explain it, so if you can't hear it the way I do there's no convincing you. It is safer to say "Yeah, they're doing that thing like Stooges or MC5 or Velvets, that's one rock tradition" but it really is more than that, those other bands do not have the same pocket, so the covers are just as good as the originals. Relationships between Pete Kember and Jason Pierce had been on the decline since the recording of Playing With Fire, with matters coming to a head during a meeting at the Fire Records offices to finalise the songwriting credits for that album. From that point onwards, the two main Spacemen rarely collaborated in the studio, although Spacemen 3 would continue as a live act for most ofand on paper until mid Throughout the majority of the recording, Pete and Jason would work separately, drawing on the other Spacemen where required. The release of Recurring was delayed, mainly while Pete worked on perfecting the mixes of his tracks. My Take Spacemen 3 were a band who made four very different studio albums, but some albums are more different than others, and Recurring clearly stands as their most unusal, clearly a breed apart from their other work.
