RSD rumour...

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.

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:

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.

Just been alerted to this thread by one of the ex SP3 band members…..as an ardent supporter of an individual's right to free speech I (Gerald Palmer) wish to make a comment on this piece of “fake news”.

I assume that as a matter of due diligence you fan boys have all fact checked the veracity of your claims? What’s your source?.....a Donald Trump tweet perhaps?......a disgruntled ex-band member making a post on the Spiritualized forum erroneously alleging they get paid ‘zero’ royalties?......which, unsurprisingly, I might add, gets disseminated further, with everyone feeling as though they should add their own unsubstantiated take on the story but hey ho, that’s the internet for you.

As a general rule I ordinarily choose not to air dirty laundry on social media but to quote Mia Wallace, “when you little scamps get together you're worse than a sewing circle”, so whilst writing please allow me to pose a question you may wish to consider; if these releases are purported to be “bootleg” recordings then why has no other label (excepting only Space Age Recordings) pressed or sold these recordings since the expiration of the licenses to Fire Records, RCA / BMG and subsequently Taang! Records in the U.S.A. in the 90’s?

For the record I've been working with the members of Spacemen 3 continually since 1987.These albums are owned and controlled by me for life of copyright and Space Age Recordings has exclusively manufactured, distributed and sold these records on a worldwide basis for approximately the last 20 years. All the ex-members of Spacemen 3 continue to be accounted to and paid artist royalties on a bi-annual basis as they have been for the last 30 years, with the total sum paid out in royalties running into substantial six figure sums.

All claims that these reissues are "bootlegs” and that the band's members are not being paid royalties are both strenuously denied and completely refuted.

I’m also guessing that all of you lurking on the forum here are as passionate about the integrity of the Spacemen 3 name as I am and so will have read the Erik Morse biography on the band?.....if so you’re probably also aware that it was written with extensive help and input from Pete Kember who ok’d it before publication? If so, I suggest that now might be a good time to go back for a re-read if it’s “alternative facts” you’re after; as they say, there’s always two sides to every story.

No further comment.

Yeah that says it all for me, I think you`ve milked this cow long enough Gerald, Iv`e got all the Spacemen music I`ll ever need so you`ll get fuck all from me anyway, but do you really think coming on here and having ago at people who have supported and followed the Spacemen for a long ,long time is the way to go? Can`t see it myself.

Wonder what the substantial sum paid out actually is? Split however, over 30 yrs, could well add up to buttons so spare us the benevolent custodian routine, we`re not buying it.

I am not going to talk down to you like you felt the need to talk down to us, the fans who love this band, however instead of these bs reissues you keep releasing why not give us a proper remasters from the masterpieces "you own". Since you "own" it all for perpetuity.
Since you "own" them you still "own" the master tapes. Am I correct?

That’s all well and good Gerald. I am fully aware you own the rights and although I don't agree with that it's a fact.

The problem is two-fold.

Firstly you are in a position to release whatever Spacemen 3 product you see fit without any consultation or approval of the band members. That doesn't seem right. Not just to me but to anyone who thinks about the situation. The result is a series of reissues which you must know grate on people here 'who are passionate about the integrity of the Spacemen 3 name’. There is no doubt in my mind - and others too – that you are doing that name a massive disservice.

Secondly this is a catalogue crying out for a remaster as the releases are hugely sub-standard sound wise. Surely you know that as it’s been discussed for the past 27 years. That makes any kind of reissue a further insult to what I regard as some of the greatest music ever made. The only man who would could take on the remaster challenge is Pete Kember himself, which takes us back to square one. Impasse.

You are the one who calls the shots here as the band appear powerless, so why continue to fire out these substandard reissues? It can’t be because of the music. For me Spacemen 3 were all about music, but that notion seems to have been lost. Or ignored.

To be fair to the band there was not a lot of notice about these new Space Age releases. I only noticed them a while back on the RSD rumours blogs. I think the main point is simply not to buy the tat that is out there as it is not just Spacemen 3 who are on the receiving end of this kind of sharp practice. Any and all support for the Spaceage side of things simply serves to delay the band/ Sonic and Jason getting control of their back catalogue back, (and probably more important from the revenue point of view, the t-shirt business). Then they can do something about addressing the possibility of remastering or properly re-releasing the LPs. The current situation is shitty in the extreme.

Seems a bit of a conundrum on these RSD releases now, not sure too many record shops will have known about this situation, I`m popping by local shop later and I know he has them, be interested to see what he`s charging, and while Sonic and Pete Bain have been on about this for around a yr, it has taken Jason till now to acknowledge it as even a problem. Quite a few folks I know I had to personally point this out to them as they were thinking about buying these releases and were totally unaware of the situation. Now, with the way RSD product works it seems like Palmer`s made a killing again, shame.

It's a tricky situation. If Palmer's already got his cash I realise boycotting these releases hurts the record stores instead of him, but I support the boycott nevertheless. If people don't buy these releases then record stores (stuck with unwanted stock) will be leery of buying futher Sp3 exploitation from Space Age in the future. That's a good thing.

It's a shame Sonic and Bassman's campaign against Palmer wasn't widely known before, but again, Jason getting involved can only be a good thing. Yes, it's unfortunately too late to affect these new re-releases, but to mangle a cliche, Palmer's exploitation is for life, not just Record Store Day. It affects all aspects of the Sp3 catalogue and intellectual property, and having Jason on board will only further their case in terms of weight and exposure.
