Spacemen 3 Live At The New Morning: 5.18.89 on Limited Edition LP

First Official Release of Bootlegged 1989 Performance in Geneva, Switzerland

A bootleg of this show has been floating around for a while but this is the first time that this particular Spacemen 3 performance has had any kind of official release, albeit in slightly truncated form. Sonic Boom concedes in his sleeve notes that “the set presented here, is as it was...except the show was twice this length. We tuned and smoked for almost as long as we played.” 

So it’s pretty much the show minus all the tuning, smoking, and one rendition of "Revolution," which the band had taken to playing twice at the time to milk the audience reaction due to its minor hit status. There’s not much point describing what Spacemen 3 sounded like because if you’re looking at this then you’re already familiar with their hypnotic psych-fuzz drug-pop. It’s a strong set, most notable for the half-hour rendition of "Suicide" that takes up the entirety of side B. It’s a seething, pulsating kraut-psych monster. 

The story on the sleeve says that they “slipped away mid song amongst much fog and dry ice, with taped down keys and feeding back guitars propped against our speaker cabs keeping the song pulsating and screaming.” It’s hard to tell at which point they left the stage or for how long, as the entire piece is a compelling landscape of shuddering feedback throbs, clanging bass and pounding repeat rhythms.

Features:
• Recorded from the mixing desk
• 29:12 version of Suicide
• Limited to 500 LPs printed on shiny silver cardboard
• Picture sleeve from the actual gig
• Liner notes by Sonic Boom
