Author Erik Morse also paints a history of the British indie-rock scene of the mid 80s from its post-punk roots to the earliest days of acid house and Spacemen 3's role in reinventing psychedelia for a new generation including bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine. Includes interviews from several major players in and around Spacemen 3 who recount the now legendary concerts, road tours and behind the scenes myths surrounding the recording of the underground classics Perfect Prescription and Playing with Fire.

As a big Spacemen 3 (and early Spiritualized) fan I was really looking forward to this book. Sadly I found myself skim-reading whole passages, that I felt really didn't have to do anything with the band. I'm not really keen on biographers quoting Deleuze unless absolutely necessary either. The book presents the pairing of Pete "Sonic Boom" Kember and Jason "J. Spaceman" Pierce as one destined for greatness and doomed for disintegration.

Excellent book, jam-packed with detail on one of my favorite bands. Yeah, its long and dense, as some other reviewers have written, but I appreciate the insights. Each chapter starts with a definition/description of Dreamweapon. Beautiful. An excellent read. Couple this with Will Carruther's Playing Bass with Three Left Hands, slap a couple sides of S3 on the turntable and it's almost like you were in Rugby back in the day.

Learned a lot—not just about Spacemen 3 but about lots of other bands that influenced them as well as bands that were influenced by them. Well researched and engaging.

This book contains virtually all of the information anyone interested in Spacemen 3 would want to know about the history of the band. For that, it is a worthwhile read for any serious fan. Nevertheless, the book is written as an essay, rather than a narrative, and does not give a vivid picture of the people involved, apart from their nearly continuous drug use. The author is very fond of using obscure words whose meaning he does not fully command. Usually it is not hard to figure out what he has in mind, although sometimes it's nonsense. Morse often gives long, tedious descriptions of the songs, as if the reader had never listened to them, and needed a description to understand at all what the songs were like. The entire first chapter is a deconstruction of Dreamweapon, which is extremely self-indulgent, and just unbearable. There are several other shorter segments throughout the rest of the book about the author's experience which do not enrich the appreciation of Spacemen 3. I would be very surprised to learn that Omnibus Press employed an editor.

I love the Spacemen, Spectrum and Spiritualized and everyone they've influenced. I bought this e-book hoping to find out more about them and their background and influences. Unfortunately from the start this book is just awful. It is practically unreadable due to the author's pretentious style of writing. The author would have been much better off just giving a fact-based tale of the birth of the Spacemen and drone/spacerock instead of coloring it in with his own personal literary garbage as he appears to think he is the next James Joyce. I think he took more drugs then Jason or Pete before starting to write. You'd probably have to be wasted to find anything useful here.

Very engaging read. If yr a fan recommended. Prologue is not representative of the rest if the book. Cheapest way to read this unless you find it at a thift store or garage sale
