Spacemen 3 Town & Country Club, London -1989-07-23

It's fairly unlikely you'd have made it here without ever having heard of Jason's previous incarnation. So here you go, talk away...

Good sounding recording.
Any chance someone with the know-how can track this out from the one long track?

Reading the comments - has anyone ever seen the video this release was supposedly taken from?

The only live Sp3 videos I've ever seen are:

Subterrania UK (mostly blue, but clears up a bit further in, iirc)
Willem 1 Holland
Germany Forum, Enger

The Subterrania gig is probably the rarest of the three... but I'm really curious about this other live video. Does it actually exist?

...and (of course) many thanks for the T&C gig!

A good few years ago, I exchanged a few emails with the chap who filmed and owns the video. He was very friendly and seemed happy in principal for it to get out there, but had no idea where exactly it was amongst his voluminous property. It seemed rude to keep asking about it. Maybe he'll turn it up one day.

I'm getting deja-vu :)

I think I've asked this before and you replied... hey, it's been a while...I just plain forgot :D

It's one of those things I stumble across every few years and wonder about, mostly because it might be the only decent recording of the band on UK soil. The Subterrania gig is, for the most part, unwatchable.

If he ever finds it and wants help converting it to DVDR I'd be happy to help out - my only hope is that it doesn't get binned!

Ian, have you seen the video - or does your friend remember it being decent quality... mores the point, how about the band's performance?

He's not a friend, friendly though he was, hence me not feeling in a position to hassle him about it again. No, I haven't seen it. When we were talking about it in 2005 (!), he said; "The video itself is not bad for a shoulder-shot '87 home video - I was right at the front of the stage so everything is close up. A bit shaky, and the focus comes and goes because of the low lighting, but the band looks cool enough!"

We live in hope...

This show is a mystery for me... Years ago I downloaded the big torrent one generous user uploaded on a torrent site and there were a "sp3-1989-08-22" and a "sp3-1989-08-23" folders, the latter being files Evan kindly shared above.
Then I separated the big wav files and re-upped these on another tracker as, respectively, "sp3-1989-08-22" (Subterrania show) and "sp3-1989-07-23" (T&CC show) since there is no 08/23/89 show (I guess).

I didn't realize until an user commented that these two recordings are actually the same show, 08/22/89 Subterrania show, s/he said.
So not sure what is the correct date for this one... Would somebody having the Subterrania video be able to compare?

Here are the files I'm talking about above, may you want to download. The shorter 7 tracks version includes a longer intro and is much better quality than the long one.

The 23/7/89 gig was at the Town & Country (later the Forum, now the O2 Forum).

The 22/8/89 gig was at Subterania, three days before the final Spacemen 3 gig at the Reading festival.

Not sure which of these the recording is!

I am on my holidays so cannot check the file sets but my recollection is that the T&CC gig was the show featuring a quite long set list and a version of Revolution that segued into War Sucks. I'll sort this out when I get back to the UK and post the set lists.

I'll have a hunt for the Subteranea video over the next few days - and try to get it uploaded somewhere.

EDIT: Okay, had a dig through my CD's box and found lots of SP3 boots...but not the Subteranea gig. Which means it's still on tape (VHS) and I need to dub it again - or (more likely) it's a DVDR backed up on an old hard drive.

I will keep looking but it's going to take a little while longer. It is 100% here somewhere...
