Présentation de l'éditeur

Spacemen 3 are the greatest rock band of which you've never heard.

This briefly surveys the backgrounds of songwriters Pete 'Sonic Boom' Kember and Jason 'Spacemen' Pierce during their childhood years and adolescent collaborations, from which would forge cult-icons Spacemen 3.

It recounts the highs and lows of a backwater band whose history is littered with excess, heroin addiction and ambition.

Author Erik Morse also paints a history of the British indie-rock scene of the mid 80s from its post-punk roots to the earliest days of acid house and Spacemen 3's role in reinventing psychedelia for a new generation including bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine.

Includes interviews from several major players in and around Spacemen 3 who recount the now legendary concerts, road tours and behind the scenes myths surrounding the recording of the underground classics Perfect Prescription and Playing with Fire.

It uncovers the yet untold stories of greed and ambition that came from business impresarios to major labels and the inevitable collapse of the band at the end of the 80s.

Morse looks at the earliest days of offspring bands Spectrum and Spiritualized founded by Kember and Pierce following the dissolution of Spacemen 3.

Contains discography of Spacemen 3 as well as early releases from Spectrum and Spiritualized as well as rare bootlegs and live recordings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Warts 'n All Tale of Rugby's own MC5 27 octobre 2005
Par D. F. Wallace - Publié sur Amazon.com
From Uncut Magazine: At their peak Spacemen 3 could probably outdrug The Happy Mondays at the Drug Olympics. Indeed, the author thoughtfully includes an inventory of gear, both electrical and pharmaceutical, at the outset, butane and methamphetamine being as crucial to the Spacemen oeuvre as the Casio, the Korg and the Vox Tone Bender. It's a typically small town English tale of well bred young hedonists transcending their environment and their record collection to become one of the most spellbinding and influential noise bands of the late 1980s.

All the more remarkable, then, that the author is based in New York. Aside from a couple of minor lapses - "pissed" for "pissed off", that kind of thing - you would have assumed he'd spent his life thumbing a ride between The Old Five Bells Northampton and the Rugby methadone clinic, so accurately rendered is the local colour. The central characters, Jason Pierce and Pete "Sonic" Kember, are compellingly drawn, and as destined to fall out it seems as Richard Hell and Tom Verlaine. And while you get the impression that Morse was able to gain Sonic's trust more readily than Jason's, he's to be congratulated for conveying every last addled nuance of this utterly captivating story.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 excellently researched, style hard to bear 25 novembre 2010
Par spaceman - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book contains virtually all of the information anyone interested in Spacemen 3 would want to know about the history of the band. For that, it is a worthwhile read for any serious fan. Nevertheless, the book is written as an essay, rather than a narrative, and does not give a vivid picture of the people involved, apart from their nearly continuous drug use. The author is very fond of using obscure words whose meaning he does not fully command. Usually it is not hard to figure out what he has in mind, although sometimes it's nonsense. Morse often gives long, tedious descriptions of the songs, as if the reader had never listened to them, and needed a description to understand at all what the songs were like. The entire first chapter is a deconstruction of Dreamweapon, which is extremely self-indulgent, and just unbearable. There are several other shorter segments throughout the rest of the book about the author's experience which do not enrich the appreciation of Spacemen 3. I would be very surprised to learn that Omnibus Press employed an editor.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Spacemen have landed, December 9, 2004 27 octobre 2005
Par dgoo69 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a great in depth look at the career of Late Eighties Drone rockers Spacemen 3. Starting with the initial stumbling inception of the band in Rugby going through their near break trhough success and ending with the dissolution of the band and the start of Spectrum and Spiritualised.

The author tells the story well allthough its quite clear Jason Pierce was not consultedthat much as his quotes seem to be culled from old interviews. But the book is not entirely from Pete Kembers' point of view as all the ex members are on hand to voice their version of events!

Spacemen 3 are one of my favourite bands but this book has infomed me graetly, I also didnt get to see them live but the description of the live performances and the music nearly makes up for it.

A couple of minor gripes Waterman Art Centre is not in Hammersmith but Brentford. And the ending Chapters concerning Spiritualised are a bit hurried and brief, its as though the author didn't know where to end his story.

A great book I was expecting a thin pamphlet not a 300 page masterpeice. Buy it and read whilst listening to all their albums and enjoy the trip!

Very engaging read. If yr a fan recommended. Prologue is not representative of the rest if the book. Cheapest way to read this unless you find it at a thift store or garage sale

I love the Spacemen, Spectrum and Spiritualized and everyone they've influenced. I bought this e-book hoping to find out more about them and their background and influences. Unfortunately from the start this book is just awful. It is practically unreadable due to the author's pretentious style of writing. The author would have been much better off just giving a fact-based tale of the birth of the Spacemen and drone/spacerock instead of coloring it in with his own personal literary garbage as he appears to think he is the next James Joyce. I think he took more drugs then Jason or Pete before starting to write. You'd probably have to be wasted to find anything useful here.
