    Following the quickly sold out limited edition transparent orange coloured vinyl that was exclusively released for Record Store Day 2017 Space Age Recordings are pleased to announce a new vinyl pressing of Spacemen 3's seminal album "Playing With Fire'. This album is again pressed on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl with printed card inner sleeve but this version is the standard black vinyl version.

    Originally released in February 1989 and after having been out of print on vinyl for nearly 20 years Space Age Recordings are pleased to announce an official limited edition vinyl release of the third and penultimate studio album "Playing with Fire" by Spacemen 3 (Sonic Boom a.ka. Peter Kember (Spectrum / E.A.R.) and Jason Pierce (Spiritualized).

    Featuring the single "Revolution" first released in November 1988:

    'one of the best records released by an independent band this year. Adjectives that come to mind are unrelenting, punishing, psychedelic. The razor-blade riffs lead you into a sonic underworld of alienation, desolation and raw power...the band are one of the most interesting around. ' - °Ron Rom, NME.

    'a powerful, anthemic "mind-melting crunch" (Ned Raggett, AllMusic).


    Presented in a shrink-wrapped limited edition (1,000 copies only) on heavyweight (180 gram) transparent orange coloured vinyl with printed card inner sleeve exclusively released for Record Store Day 2017.

  • Spacemen 3 'Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To'

    Space Age Recordings

    Spacemen 3 'Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To'

    £11.99

    Double LP on heavyweight 180 gram audiophile black vinyl in a wide spined sleeve with new artwork layout. Re-mastered by John Rivers at Woodbine Studios especially for vinyl release. Includes a bonus track not on the CD version and new artwork design.

    Never has a record been so aptly titled, or so perfectly descriptive of a band's particular vision of the universe. For all that, the original appearance of Taking Drugs was in fact a bootleg on the semi-legendary/semi-notorious Father Yod imprint in 1990, later supplemented with contemporary outtakes and cuts for the Bomp reissue in 1994 and one further song for the Space Age version in 2000.

    The original seven tracks, dated January 1986 and the first recordings to feature Pete Bain on bass, are collectively known as the Northampton Demos, understandably named for the recording location in a studio outside said English city.

    Both Sonic and Pierce have been on record as long preferring these takes to the eventual versions that surfaced for the most part on Sound of Confusion. Certainly it's a fine set of performances, showing a definite step toward the more familiar sound of the group and away from the rougher takes on For All the Fucked Up Children of the World.

    "The Sound of Confusion," aka "Walkin' With Jesus," rips along with fierce energy, Pierce's singing and the rampaging, primitive wail and rumble of the band just wonderful. "Losing Touch With My Mind" takes things to an even higher level, a huge wallop of feedback and beat (Natty Brooker's drumming in particular delivers just what the doctor ordered), Pierce delivering the lines with a flat, cutting drawl.

    On the slightly lighter tip, "Come Down Easy" is more or less fully in place (aside from singing about it being 1986!), possessing a more upfront but less vocally distinct feel than the Perfect Prescription take. The tracks that surfaced on the later reissues come from a variety of different sessions, including the original take on "Feel So Good" and a good live version of "Things'll Never Be the Same," one of several cuts featuring Brooker's drumming replacement Rosco.

    Tracklisting:
    1. The Sound Of Confusion
    2. 2.35 (Version 1)
    3. Losing Touch With My Mind
    4. Amen
    5. That's Just Fine (Vocal Version)
    6. Come Down Easy
    7. Mary Anne
    8. Feel So Good
    9. 2.35 (Feedback Version)
    10. Hey Man
    11. It's Allright
    12. 2.35 (Version 2)
    13. Things'll Never Be The Same
    14. Transparent Radiation (Organ Version)

    Space Age Recordings are pleased to announce a 500 copy repress of Spacemen 3 live album “Threebie 3” on heavyweight yellow vinyl.

    Originally released in 1989 and only available with a coupon contained in the Spacemen 3 classic "Playing

    Featuring four tracks from a live show at the
    Melkweg, Amsterdam from February 1988 and a studio version of "Live Intro Theme (Xtacy)". The tracks "Starship", "Revolution", "Suicide" and "Repeater" capture perfectly the spirit of the Spacemen 3 live experience

    The trademark drones and one chord barrages are tied together by a brooding sense of urgency and a near chaotic air of energy.

    Tracklisting:
    Side A
    1. Starship (Live)
    2. Revolution (Live)
    3. Suicide (Live)

    Side B
    4. Repeater (Live)
