Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0711996024, Paperback)This is the warts-and-all story of Spacemen 3 - the backwater band forged from the collaborations of Pete Sonic Boom Kember and Jason Spaceman Pierce. Erik MOrse s book recounts the highs and lows of a fringe outfit whose brief history was characterized by excess, overdose, ambition and the hypnotic trance of tremolo drones. Spacemen 3 had more than its share of psychedelic experimentation and heroin addiction before it finally burned out...but before it did Kember and Pierce s group gave the world a bracing antidote to early 80s synthesizer pop. Spacemen 3 were a shot in the arm - in every sense - and the book goes on to give an incisive history of the mid 80s British indie-rock scene they energized and influenced. Contains discography for Spacemen 3 plus details of early releases from spinoff bands Spectrum and Spiritualized.
