Spacemen 3 - Hammersmith Riverside, London 24th August 1988

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...

Spacemen 3 - Hammersmith Riverside, London 24th August 1988

Post by catweazel »

Not my upload, I don't think this has been posted here? I just stumbled across it this evening...

Reading the comments it looks it's a new boot uploaded by the brave soul who recorded it.

Quality is great, just about to vape some herb and check out Revolution... I may be gone for quite some time :)

Nice quote from Runcible about the gig (from a forum search here...)

"Actually the greatest Spacemen show I saw was at Hammersmith Riverside in August 1988. A guy I knew was handing out tabs of acid to anyone who wanted it which added a warped dimension to the audience as quite a few accepted his offer - although many looked at him suspiciously."

(...and from Wikipedia)

"Jonny Mattock made his live debut on 24 August at a gig at the Riverside in Hammersmith, London"

Cheers. That guy has been putting up loads of great gigs on his channel the past few months.

He posted this Sonic Boom/Will Carruthers 15/11/1988 Drummonds, London show recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGs6R09 ... e=youtu.be

He's got at least one more to come, although I don't know which it is and I would guess it will be one we already have a recording of. But his are great quality. He's posting a gig a day, loads of bands people here will like, I recommend having a browse of his channel.
I have a passion sweet Lord...

He's just posted Spiritualized - Reading University.

But the excitement doesn't end there! How about some Walking With Jesus in Spanish to while away dem' Corona-virus blues?

(It's either that or their cover of Wham's Last Christmas. Is this the very definition of "eclectic" tastes?)
