Re: Box of Spacemen 3/Spiritualized Cassettes

In the video clip Will mentions Didgeridoo, which turned into Sway. This is on Blue On Blue, so I guess some of the other cassettes will contain stuff that was on both that and Friendly Fire? Probably quite a lot more though.

Also curious is that it's dated 1993, yet in line with Pure Phase and the Spiritualized Electric Mainline name and stylised logo / artwork - which I didn't think appeared until around the release of the album in 1995.
