Artefact

A ticket for Spiritualized on their first tour.

This was something of a chilled out gig, everyone sat on the floor. Something changed though soon after and the next few times I saw them they got more and more intense each time.

This particular first tour was also mainly the reason that Spacemen 3 split up, or at least the final straw. It was advertised as Spacemen 3 minus Sonic Boom, which it was as the entire band was present, and this somewhat annoyed Sonic and deepened the rift.

were they supported by the darkside at this gig?

if so this was where the darkside's singer spent most of the gig telling me about how he spends his time taking heroin with sonic boom... he was very boring but their first single was a cracker!

also i think it was this gig where my friend irene fell asleep on the stage, facing the audience with her head resting against the pa... very funny for the rest of us. (irene gets a mention elsewhere on this site for drunkenly drumming with the man from del monte - she certainly had her 15minutes of fame!)

I love their "ladies and gentleman we are floating in space" cd in its packaging like a packet of tablets including the cd wrapped in foil and full user instructions. One of the best things ever done with the limitations of cd packaging.

there's a very limited version on 6 (I think) discs in one plastic pill tray- foil 'n all - looks like a big packet of pills
jsz Says –
Over the years though this wonderful bit of packaging just turns to crap, and you end up with a flimsy, creased up bit of cardboard and foil. Also, if you open it, you ruin it instantly.

yes... anyway let's discuss something manc...

Hmmm...Darkside 'singer'? A very boring man indeed...he's just discovered Punk, or so I'm led to believe...ha!
