SPACEMEN 3 – ” Translucent Flashbacks: The 12″ singles ” Record SD 2014

Posted: May 1, 2023 in MUSIC

One of the most influential bands of the 80s British underground, the number of bands with a sonic debt to the Kember/Pierce partnership seems to grow every year. Like a lot of bands that have forged iconic status in the guitar world, even though they were much more than a noisy guitar band, they reinvented noise in music.

An exclusive release for Record Store Day 2014. This title may be available on sale one week after the event on Monday 28th April, dependant on availability.

Fire Records bring together Spacemen 3’s ultra rare first three singles as “Translucent Flashbacks” – each of the 3x 12″s are individually packaged and bundled into a wide spine outer sleeve including the singles ‘Walkin’ with Jesus’, ‘Transparent Radiation’ and ‘Take Me to the Other Side’ on 180gram vinyl of all three releases.

Spacemen 3 were a band from Rugby in Warwickshire who formed in 1982 and went on to become one of the most distinctive and influential bands from that era or any other. Led by Pete Kember (Sonic Boom) and Jason Pierce, Spacemen 3 have never been more important and Fire Records are running a series of reissues of some of the band’s earliest material including these special Record Store Day Releases.
