Performance arrives on vinyl. Recorded in Amsterdam in 1988, the live Performance documents a set from the Perfect Prescription tour; the emphasis here is on the group’s loud, noisy origins — only the closing “Feel So Good” hints at the more subdued atmospheres and textures which emerged as Spacemen 3’s primary focus as they approached Playing With Fire. Among the highlights: “Take Me to the Other Side,” “Walkin’ With Jesus” and “Come Together.”
Spacemen 3, led by Pete Kember (Sonic Boom) and Jason Pierce have never been more influential, and now their distinctive style and sound can finally be properly recognized and enjoyed in their original form!!!
As the first stage in Fire Records comprehensive Spacemen 3 reissue campaign, they are proud to release, for the first time on LP in the U.S. the band’s unforgettable debut record, Sound of Confusion, the defining sound of the classic The Perfect Prescription, and the jaw-dropping live haze of Performance. All of the LPs have been restored to their original tracklisting and come in three special 180gram colored vinyl editions.
