RSD rumour...

Postby Laz69 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 9:22 am

Apparently there is a rumour floating about that a selection of the Spacemen 3 catalogue is getting reissued for this years RSD. Not sure if its just the US RSD, but it was mentioned that Forced Exposure was putting them out. Supposedly releasing Playing With Fire, Recurring and For All The Fucked Up Children.

No doubt Gerald Palmer is behind this yet again. Fuckin disgraceful. You'd think some sort of injunction could be put in place while this is being disputed. One of the greatest bands to ever exist and they are being completely and utterly ripped off every year with endless reissues.

whilst im sure Gerald Palmer will try his hardest to cash in, that might not yet be the case :

the RSD reissue list appears to show potential vinyl releases from

Spacemen 3 : For all the fucked up children
Spacemen 3 : Recurring
Spacemen 3 : Playing with fire

For all the fucked up originally emerged on Sympathy for the record industry, so they might be re-issuing. The original vinyl release sells for £50 to £75 these days

Recurring : technically the property of BMG, this may well be a space age re-issue since they've previously re-issued it on cd.

Since relatively recently fire records were behind the previous SP3 record store day releases, theres a chance they might be re-issuing Playing With Fire.

The guy at the shop I spoke to said they all have catalog numbers starting with Orbit. Which is Space Age.
The list was from Forced Exposure in the US.

I really want Recurring. OPs are way out of my range.

So, I may get the bootleg reissue (if it is). Sorry.

For All The Fucked-Up Children Of This World We Give You Spacemen 3 ... might as well, if I can get one.

oh how depressing. yeah I wouldn't buy any of those whatsoever. mildly surprised Fire haven't re-issued PWF though. but then also not surprised Palmer would just press up a version anyhow.

Palmer renewed the SP3 trademark in 2015 to encompass digital releases also :

I have just spotted a copy of Recurring (LP) in a local shop for £40, which turns out to be cheaper than discogs. But may well be negated by p+p to US. Earliest I can go back there is Thu. though. Anyone interested I can give out details where to find it.

Agreed. As much as would like Recurring on vinyl I have to look away.

For amusement sake, here is the promo descriptor for FATFUCWBU:


First official limited edition vinyl release of what was first released as a bootleg record in 1995. The record consists of Spacemen 3's first ever recording session from 1984. The music itself sounds like a primitive version of what the group was to become; the dominating sound of the record is a slow, droning psychedelic blues performed with sparse instrumentation. A drum set is matched with a pair of distorted electric guitars, all of which provide a swirling foundation for Jason Pierce's vocals. Includes printed card inner sleeve; 180 gram white vinyl; Edition of 1000.

I guess it's official if GP license's it rather than Sonic. Funny how Pete signed all those bootleg CDs :wink:

Funny how some folks can't get possessive punctuation right, yet apparently have some inconsequential grasp on other ironies?

Quiver at Dawn Entertainment put it out a couple of months earlier than SFTRI, but think it's probably considered a bootleg. Seems to be the only thing that label has ever put out.

I got my sealed copy of the original For All The Fucked... for £30 + p&p last year.

There are bargains to be found still!

I'll buy the unlicensed reissues, then keep looking for originals.

[Sorry not sorry]

Fuck that Palmer guy, though.

They are licensed. Just to the wrong person who pays no royalties to the band.

If there's anyone out there that would be willing to pick me up those two Spacemen 3 reissues, I'd be happy to repay you and/or trade for some American RSD releases. Let me know, thanks!

Same as NER above. I have a few feelers out already.

Sucks the band doesn't get paid. If they reissue them, I'll buy ASAP.
