Spacemen 3 t-shirts,

It's fairly unlikely you'd have made it here without ever having heard of Jason's previous incarnation. So here you go, talk away...

Their okay, it seems like a Spaceman fan who just wants to make a few quid. No different than some of the vendors selling SP3 shirts on eBay.

bit of an opportunity missed I reckon. Real shortage of S3 TShirts available. Nice to see multiple colouts avaibale rather than ubiquitous Black, but the recurring one is a horror show. Could do better, but still likely to buy at least one!

Those go for crazy money. One battered example which had the sleeves cut off sold for a lot of money last year. I had 2 of the white version which turned into tents as the fabric used was poor quality, so I chucked them out about 20 years ago. Wish I'd kept the buggers now.

I know they seem to be very overpriced online that guy who wanted 800 for a recurring shirt is crazy

I'll settle for the higher quality newer shirts that I've been told have been sold at Spectrum shows before. If anyone has the newer gold or silver print shirts printed on the higher quality shirts let me know. I am also looking for any vintage spiritualized shirts or spectrum shirts. I will pay a fair price.

'm toying with picking up that EAR shirt... i think they actually look quite good... and i don't think £20 is too obscene a price to pay for a decent band's t-shirt...

Now if anyone can just direct me to where a t-shirt with the first Carlton Melton album cover on it... :D

Total Madness. It looks well worn not even worth 5 quid.

You can create your own t-shirt for like 10-15 quid. They have t-shirt websites that let you do that, however, you have to have some sort of Illustration software i.e. - Illustrator, CorelDraw, etc to do it. The Spacemen font is easy to find and you got to have some creativity in creating one...

Wow they've got some great looking baby outfits on there. Bit pricey though...nearly £20 including p&p though I think I may just have to grab that other Spacemen 3 t for my little Dylan 8)

Oh, and Natty, let me know what the t-shirt is like when you get it. I'm going to let you be the guinea pig here and wait to see what you think of them before I dive in. Got my eye on the 13th Floor Elevators and New Order "Movement" t's along with the aforementioned Spacemen 3 one.

The print isn't as bright as the sleeve of the record and could perhaps be sharper, but its decent enough, has survived a couple of washes without deteriorating any. To be honest it was worth it just for the smiles seeing my baby daughter wearing it has given me :-)

They come up very small though. My baby had grown out of it by 3 months and it was supposed to be for 3-6 months. She's not that big either.

Spacemen 3 first came into my radar at the time of 'Big City', and I remember there was the SPacemail address for the fanvlub at PO Box 8, Corby (I imagine this was directed to Gerald). At the time, I remember getting an order form back again with the short and long sleeved versions of the 'Recurring' shirt on it, along with the 'Playing With Fire' and 'For All The F***** Up... shirts as well. THese were, if my memory serves me right, sold as manufactured by Popworld / Rox. I'd love to think that there may still be a box of unsold shirts lying somewhere in a NOrthamptonshire/Warwickshire warehouse that may see the light of day......

Further to this, from reading the Erik MOrse book, it talks a fair bit of Spacemen 3 T shirt sales on their various tours, so it'd be interesting to see what some of these early T-shirt images were.

The people who did The Outer Limits reissued cassettes of the original demos which came as a package with the early needle logo shirt. I have a couple of those somewhere, printed on light blue. Just found one:

I also heard from Pete K that when the Spacemen first toured Europe - to their astonishment - a lot of the audience were wearing Sp3 shirts, even though none had been produced. The audience had made their own which obviously pleased the band quite a bit.

Don't think I could ever buy any of the 'For All The F***** Up.. shirts. (I also know that there are some reprints of these in a variety of colours, with the Spacemen 3 triangle on the front). I'd just be really concerned about offending anyone! Maybe I'm a wuss, but just wouldn't feel comfortable!

I really wanted one of the long sleeve 'Recurring' ones, and wished I 'd ordered one at the time. It had S3 running all down the sleeve, with a huge S3 logo in the centre of the shirt, with Natty's sweet tooth design running through the S3.

At the same time, when I wrote off to the PO Box 8 address, I also had order forms for the original orange and blue Spz LGM angel/devil long and short sleeve shirts.

I totally understand not wanting to offend anyone. I wont wear a shirt with the word fuck on it. Sometimes I will to a show but that is it.
I had an official Recurring shirt, PWF shirt, I have the one Runcible posted. Spiritualized I have way too many. 10-12 probably.

The one I had back in the day "S3" all down the arm but just a square "sweet tooth" picture on the front with "Spacemen 3" above it IIRC.

Like this one, but long sleeved, basically:

Got too many blim burns in it and it went in the bin eventually I'm afraid to say.

I swear I had the same long-sleeve, S3 down the arms, would have been ~ 1991. What's more, that being the era and 'baggy' being the scene, I'm pretty convined mine had a hood?!
In truth, not their best.

I did my lad a DIY one with PK half face from the flexi single. Pretty tasteful.
