Spacemen 3

Profile:
Formed in 1982 in the town of Rugby by Pete Kember (Sonic Boom (2)) and Jason Pierce (J. Spaceman), Spacemen 3 were to become one of the most important bands of the eighties, with their offshoots destined to spread out and become equally as vital in the nineties. Spacemen 3 and Jesus And Mary Chain were the godfathers of the shoegazer and drone-rock scene which blossomed in the U.K. at the close of the '80s. But while both bands showed an obvious affinity for the pioneering sounds of The Velvet Underground, they otherwise found different sources of inspiration, with S3 masterminds Sonic Boom (Pete Kember) and J Spaceman (Jason Pierce) eschewing the The Beach Boys influenced pop symphonics favored by the J&MC's Reid Brothers and instead channeling noisy minimalists ranging from Sonic Youth to Red Krayola to Suicide.

The list above is missing the '89 flexi on the Cheree label, a split with Bark Psychosis and Fury Things. Here's a link to the "Various Artists" listing on Discogs for the flexi: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Cheree-Presents-CHEREE-F5/release/518258

Such a great group, and to all devoted followers, I have to recommend something - pick up Perry Leopold's 'Experiments In Metaphysics' - holy shit if this guy isn't their godfather.................
