Spacemen 3? any good? intriguing minimalists or spoiled public school junkies?

brilliantly minimalist public school junkies

public spoiled

cw, Wednesday, 3 January 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

I have not heard all that much (playing with Fire LP, Revolution single, a few earlier tracks), but I have to say that most of it has been shite. A thin monochrome drone with boring drugs references plastered on top. Didn't they do a final album where one side was Sonic Boom and the other side was Jason Pierce? I recall hearing that and as far as I remember all the good stuff was on the Jason side. This figures when you consider how spectacularly good (mostly) Spiritualized are. Anybody know what they're up to after Jason fired the rest of 'em? Whaddya reckon about the Spiritualized Live at the Albert Hall album? A classic in my house anyway.

Gods. Drone drone drone, plus drugs, god, Kraftwerk, Suicide and the Stooges all in somewhat that order. And gospel. Mix well, serves many. Half of American 'post-rock' of the nineties wanted to be them -- the rest signed to Thrill Jockey and thought they were jazz. Poor souls.

Loop added the extra psychosis, it has to be said. And well done for that.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 3 January 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

execrable shit. since when is adding "gospel influences" to pale imitations of suicide and VU a good thing?

"Half of American 'post-rock' of the nineties wanted to be them -- the rest signed to Thrill Jockey and thought they were jazz. Poor souls."

Ned - your statement is the most infuriatingly smug, superior bullshit I have read in a long, long time. You obviously consider yourself on a higher aesthetic plane than our friends over the atlantic. Which is presumably why you are wanking over your keyboard on an obscure mailing list rather than recording joyful music in Chicago. Good that nobody is allowed to make Jazz in your fetid, ignorant world except dead people from the 50s. Carry on keeping it real, mate, one day you'll be writing for Q.

dd, Thursday, 4 January 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

All well and good, DD, considering I happen to be American. ;-) In the meantime, what burr got up your butt? If I happen to think John McEntire is one of the most boring men on the planet in terms of his performances and production ability, that's my own take. If you're busy lighting candles to an icon of him, hey, that's yours. Relax -- I made an intentionally flip comment and all you can do is complain as if you were hit with a fish.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 4 January 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

actually sonic's side of recurring is far more interesting than j spaceman's. that said post spacemen 3 sonic has tread a good ways downhill and spiritualized have gotten better with each release. the reissue plague that hit a few years ago was a bit much for me. darkside, slipstream, philosopher's stone et all are complete crap though. pete bassman probably loves john mcentire but i have to side with ned, thrill jockey and everything they stand for is entireley useless.

keith, Saturday, 6 January 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Essential. One of the greatest rock'n'roll bands ever. In the midst of so much dross in the mid-80s they shone like a beacon.

Stevo, Thursday, 11 January 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Intriguing to say the least. Still I prefer Spiritualized, wherein the whole dope/lover/God equation is perfected. And that Jason guy always has cool hair somehow.

I am not overly familar with the Spacemen's oeuvre but from what I have heard I feel confident to make one or two contributions to this board. Firstly, that the Spacemen like to get high, I am in no doubt. Second, that they write intriguing electronic based trip out shit, I am slightly less sure. Third, that Spacemen are as good as Spacemen 3 fans like to sugest, I am distinctly wary of.

That said, a good friend of mine went through a phase of doing hard downers, getting ripped off his head and doing the rounds of the local supermarket at 3 in the morning with stuff like the Spacemen on his headphones. Then he had a heart attack.

Roger Fascist, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

I have been on ILM for over a year now, fairly regurlarly contributing and I haf nevah even looked for a spaceman thread. Thanks for reviving it though you'll get no thanks for your childish (troll like?) comments on the band.

Beautiful stuff as Ned put it. The thrill jockey crowd can go fuck themselves and Roger can stuff his led zep where the sun don't shine beacuse this is the stuff.

search: perfect perscription (great blast of psychedelia), playing w/fire (the tunes in here tend to be pretty 'weird' from kember but there's some fantastic tunes from Jason to complement it: it all goes well even though as the writing credits show, they are on the way to splitting up, the lyrics i love too) and also a 'comtemporary evening of sitar music'. This isn't 'self-indulgent'. It shows these ppl believe in their own ideas and are prepared to take 'em to their (logcal) conclusion (yes, droning on and on OBESSESIVELY).

Julio Desouza, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

i can't believe i never answered this thread before!

classic! although my favourite is Recurring which doesn't hold that high a place in sp3 fans eyes? perfect prescription and playing with fire are great too. but i don't understand this thing about droning, theres hardly any droning (well, that sitar thing aside i guess, and that taking drugs to...) but the best stuff isn't particularly drone (esp when you consider the kranky bands and other stuff that came later)

gareth, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

That's it Jules, point the finger at the new boy. Now, before I say something stoopid again, could you explain what you regular chaps mean by 'Troll'.

I mean, if I knew what you were on about, I might not be so quick to splash with the first inane comment that entered my head since they seem to go down about as well as a pork scratching as Bar Mitzvah.

You are firing my enthusiasm for Spacemen though, so it's not all doom and gloom.

That story about the heart attack is true by the way.

Roger Fascist, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

Is Rogcello really a new boy though?

awag, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

Do you've any other stories about bands that aren't related to the music? Once I read that Jason Pierce smokes gitanes. I think you can hear this in their music. Some of Spiritualized's later stuff is like total nicotine stuff. And hey this one time he bought a cup of coffee, I fucking guarantee you he drank coffee.

Ronan, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

No-one's called me that in years...

Roger Fascist, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

What do you listen to music for Ronan? Please, don't retort something along the lines of "Well not for getting fucked up on pills to like crazy wow yeah man style."

I ask because it seems to upset you on the ocassions I have mentioned music in relation to external stimuli, which I and everyone I know has always taken as pretty much a normal combination - be it getting crazy or driving a car, or just fucking dancing.

+ Are you gonna tell me what a troll is or wot?

Roger Fascist, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

But you're mentioning external stimuli in relation to the making of the music so why are you asking me about listening to music?

And anyway there's no one answer to "what do you listen to music for" besides "because I enjoy it". After that it's all down to what the individual song/album does for me, if you want to check out some reviews I can mail you a portfolio with some lovely reasons.

Ronan, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

''Is Rogcello really a new boy though?''

i thought it was marcello as well.

Julio Desouza, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

Also it's not upsetting, I just think you're wasting your time giving a shit what rockstars do in their spare time or in particular picking one activity (drug taking) and becoming so preoccupied with it's effects on music when in reality there's absolutely no way of ever proving it's been involved. I think this point is still lost on you though since you persist with other red herrings like the above.

Ronan, Tuesday, 30 July 2002 00:00 (seventeen years ago) link

That's not very cool and it really yanks my chain.

"wasting your time giving a shit what rockstars do in their spare time or in particular picking one activity (drug taking)"

No-one's wasting their time here except you typing out that crap (and you know it to be crap too kid) and me typing out a response to it.

. . .

"becoming so preoccupied with it's effects on music when in reality there's absolutely no way of ever proving it's been involved."

Who is preoccupied with rock stars and drugs? I think perhaps it might be your good self, since you seem to be in such denial about the role drugs play in creative processes, particularly music. I'm not trying to 'prove' anything nor do I have any interest in doing so. I don't care one iota who does what but when something becomes an aspect to a subject of interest, whther you like it or not, you or anyone would be foolish and ignorant to ignore or disregard such an aspect.

. . .

"I think this point is still lost on you though since you persist with other red herrings like the above."

What red herring are you referring too old chap? The story I supplied - I think it was just for the purposes of being amused, not as a profound explanation of the interpretive necessity when listening to Spacemen.

Perhaps you should post your portfolio of reviews to clarify the point for me.

that is quite a weird thread. the first ilm thread? and i still didn't get any spacemen 3 albums. the siritualized album i bought a couple of years ago (royal albert hall 97) was pretentious rubbish. i guess sonic boom is more my kind of guy. what i really don't understand: why is there no kate in this thread?

The drug-taking mostly seemed to be the least interesting aspect. Still classic!

Similarly classic is Ned's first post on this old thread, which just had me laughing my breakfast out of my nose in a most inelegant fashion. Old threads just keep on giving.

Mike McGonigal, Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:02 (fourteen years ago) link

phlar OTM. These dudes define over-rated. They rerecorded old Red Crayola, Suicide, and Stooges songs, and looked good doing it. So what. What's the difference between them and the Killers and the Bravery? "Walking with Jesus" is a good song, and their Evening of Contemporary Sitar Music is a top album to fall asleep to, but these guys otherwise define self-indulgent. How many times does anyone think, You know, I just can't get enough of Spacemen 3? Probably as many as think the same thing about, I don't know, Chrome, another alright band, but better to discuss than listen to. Sorry, but the emperor's got a jock strap on, maybe.

As for the comments above about American post-rock and jazz--Sorry, but Talk Talk and Bark Psychosis were way bigger British influences than Spacemen 3. Which isn't to say they were primary influences. I'll take Slint over Spacemen 3 any hour of the day, and so would many Thrill Jockey people, I bet.

x-post:

To me, your post doesn't do their songwriting justice. They were also really into sound and had a lot of cool things going on on their records, tone-wise. I don't know if I like the post-Perfect Prescription records so much.

I was going to say that they had more of a sense of humor than the Killers, too, but actually the Killers are quite amusing (intentionally so, I think).

Y'all might want to reread the comment a bit, which while hyperbolic is not claiming S3 influenced *all* bands vaguely or clearly labeled post-rock, and does not automatically deny the potential influence of those two (very fine) bands at all.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:27 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm not saying they suck. I'm not saying the Killers suck either. But these guys are over-rated as hell (and maybe the Killers are under-rated, who knows). Every argument I've ever heard directed at bands for being too derivative I've found equally valid regarding Spacemen 3. Personally, I could give a fuck about originality. But I could also give a fuck that Spacemen 3 like such and such cool band so much they had to record ten minute tribute songs to them.

And another thing--they sucked away attention from Sundial, who deserved it more.

halitosis, Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:30 (fourteen years ago) link

I think they had quite a new approach, actually. They certainly didn't really sound like the Stooges or Suicide.

I think the tribute songs were a part of the intentionally stoopid humor in their music along with the drug stuff and the God stuff. They weren't really serious about how their music was intended "for all the fucked up children of the world."

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:34 (fourteen years ago) link

I don't know, dude. Every interview I've ever read with Jason Pierce he comes off like he's god's gift. Keith Richards has a sense of humor about drug abuse. Spacemen 3 made it part of their cooler-than-thou schtick.

halitosis, Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:37 (fourteen years ago) link

Sundial = certainly very good at their best, but just don't connect with me as well or thoroughly.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:38 (fourteen years ago) link

But coming off like your god's gift in an interview might be part of the postmodern humor. Spacemen 3 and early Royal Trux both seemed to me like groups where there were actual junkies in the group, but they were still doing the junkie aesthetic partly as humor.

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:39 (fourteen years ago) link

"you're"

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:39 (fourteen years ago) link

I myself think "y'know, I just can't get enough of Spacemen 3" all the time. To me they seem to extend--literally and figuratively--a particular aspect of their various influences to its logical (or illogical) conclusion. That's a far cry from Bravery-type copyism, in my book.

Great, great great band. And certainly a bit ridiculous on some level, but its not as if their referents weren't also.

Dark Horse, Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:40 (fourteen years ago) link

They made a great cartoon of it. I mean, come on, they called themselves "Spacemen 3."

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:42 (fourteen years ago) link

Tim, point taken. I like Spacemen 3 too much to keep putting them down. I read interviews of theirs, obviously. But I can't think of another band whose every record has disappointed me. They're like Lucy Van Pelt holding the football and I'm Charlie Brown falling for it. It bugs me. What I kept coming back for is their style and attitude and influences to gel into an album worthy of them, like the Trux eventually pulled off with Accelerator. But all the way up through Playing with Fire, I kept landing flat on my back, so to speak. Who knows though. I've never heard Recurring. Maybe that's the one that would do it for me.

halitosis, Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:44 (fourteen years ago) link

We are like two vectors headed in opposite directions, halitosis! I think the first five Royal Trux albums are great. After that...

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Saturday, 23 April 2005 22:49 (fourteen years ago) link

i read neil haggerty talking about how his heroin use, and to a certain extent the heroin 'scene' in mid90s rock n roll new york as being part of some postmodern exercise in junkie-mythologizing irony. unfortunately that doesnt change the fact that you get addicted.

jake b. (cerybut), Saturday, 23 April 2005 23:12 (fourteen years ago) link

When I first heard Spacemen 3 I was deeply into Red Crayola, 13th Floor Elevators, Stooges and Suicide and I just thought Spacemen 3 sounded like an incredibly weak cover band. A friend of mine claimed they were great and very psychedelic and everything and he would lend me all of their CDs but I just wasn't hearing it. It sounded like such standard boring indie rock with limp, lifeless vocals, shitty sounding drums and none of the intensity of a band like the Stooges.

One night when I was pretty drunk and living in a large loft space I played the Sound of Confusion very loud and it all just clicked. I think they are the band that took me the longest to "get" and probably the biggest 180 degree shift in opinion I've ever had.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Saturday, 23 April 2005 23:27 (fourteen years ago) link

Spacemen 3? any good? intriguing minimalists or spoiled public school junkies?

I was in the same class as Jason Pierce at school and I can assure you it wasn't a public one!

Si Carter (Si Carter), Saturday, 23 April 2005 23:31 (fourteen years ago) link

i was in a record store recently and they had 'taking drugs to make music to take drugs to' playing loud over their system and it sounded great. i'm not keen on their covers at all, esp. the red crayola ones but i wouldn't mind hearing more of this record. also, the recent issue of tape op has a pretty cool interview with sonic boom.

Amon (eman), Sunday, 24 April 2005 01:17 (fourteen years ago) link

Jason is usually quite humble in interviews, you're probably thinking of Sonic, who used to regularly glamourize drugs in interviews (to the point that 85% of the dialogue was centred around drugs).

Will has a new book coming out this year:
http://www.lebowski.agency/will-carruthers/

Playing the Bass with Three Left Hands tells the story of one of the most influential, revered and ultimately demented British bands of the 1980s, Spacemen 3. In classic rock n roll style they split up on the brink of their major breakthrough.

As the decade turned sour and acid house hit the news, Rugby's finest imploded spectacularly, with Jason Pierce (aka Jason Spaceman) and Pete Kember (aka Sonic Boom) going their separate ways. Here, Will Carruthers tells the whole sorry story and the segue into Spirtualized in one of the funniest and most memorable memoirs committed to the page.
