Re: What gigs have you just been to?

forgot to post on this thread for absolutely yonks, will keep it short and sweet rather than rambling The Rolling Stones (Coventry Ricoh Arena) totally exceeded my expectations. a big show but basically no gimmicks, just a great rock band who still seem really on form. the setlist covered all the ba...

Re: Spiritualized 2018 Tour

I never thought about the gaps that are there now. maybe they will be filled. I know that sometimes they hold off on announcing all the dates so to stimulate ticket sales for particular dates. but I thought that it's usually for festivals (i.e. can't announce other dates until a certain time, or cer...

Re: Last Spiritualized Album?

Last Spiritualized album until he needs to pay the bills. He has kids, they cost money, this isn’t the last record. Unless he really needs cash, then reforming spacemen 3 makes more sense. good chance that Juliette might be the main bread winner for the kids? of course it could be that this was a v...

Re: Spiritualized 2018 Tour

so how many here are going to the London date? it pains me to not be going but the ticket price along with a trip to London kinda prices me out. also, in my experience it's often best to see Spiritualized later on in a tour when they really become a well oiled machine. what's everyone's thoughts re:...

Re: Sounds Like ... Spiritualized ...

Be very surprised if these bands didn't have Spiritualized on the mind when recording these tunes Primal Scream - Space Blues #2 https://youtu.be/O9W_cohvBgw Russian Circles - Praise Be Man https://youtu.be/xkmmNlyi3c0 BRMC - Gospel Song https://youtu.be/8aZmmSpuTiI Yo La Tengo - Nowhere Near (very ...

Anton's tweets are becoming closer and closer to Donald Trump's. He's nuts. Either bigging up his ego or some weird rant against somebody or something where you can't even tell who started it

Re: Last Spiritualized Album?

Last Spiritualized album was like 4 albums ago. witty.. and of course people are entitled to their opinions of the latter records. but surely the only person who gets to decide what Spiritualized is, is Jason Pierce? that does lead me on to a point though- as said above, it's true that the experime...

Re: My Bloody Valentine - O2 Institute, Birmingham

shame they didn't play the new tune in Birmingham, surely a new song would need a warm up more than the songs they have played umpteen times? from what I can make out on that clip it sounds great though! I like the idea of them doing a ballsy rocker but it's still got that MBV twist. The Birmingham ...

Re: Last Spiritualized Album?

obviously there's no way of knowing but my feeling would be that this is not the last album. he probably feels that way now after all the work that went into this one. but he'll get the itch again.

what would be the alternative? just do the various side projects under the J Spaceman name?

Re: Spacemen 3 t-shirts,

this site has a couple of Spacemen 3 designs. they are made to order so it's still kind of a 'just print a design onto a t shirt' deal, but I ordered a Television one recently and it came out well and is a nice fit oo
