We would seriously like to ask fans not to buy the Spacemen 3 releases and any merchandise that are being offered for sale on Record Store Day or any of the other Spacemen 3 releases and merchandise offered by Gerald Palmer on Space Age Recordings or any other subsidiary of that label.
We are currently in legal dispute with Gerald Palmer due to him depriving us of our rights in our music and other intellectual property rights relating to Spacemen 3. Any monies from those sales will go directly to him and help fund his side of the dispute.
In short... PLEASE DON'T BUY OUR RECORDS FROM SPACE AGE RECORDINGS!

Thanks for listening

J Spaceman and Sonic Boom together t/a Spacemen 3
It's nice to be liked,
But it's better by far to get paid.

Lots of stories about this now. Crazy. Hopefully it will help with their lawsuit somehow

nice to see them working together :)

'I protest!' Behemoth exclaimed hotly. 'Dostoevsky is immortal!”

Excellent news. I hope they are successful in reclaiming control of their music and any money that goes along with it. Best wishes to the both of them.

Nothing like a common enemy to bring some unity!

A friend just pointed out to me that, unfortunately, record stores have already paid for their RSD stock. That probably happened months ago. So, Palmer has already made his money off of these pressings. Boycotting the sale at this point will only hurt the record stores.

But you can still boycott all other non-RSD Space Age releases, reissues, merch, etc.
