Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To (2Lp)

Label: Superior Viaduct

Format: LPx2

Genre: Psych

Out of stock

In the swirl of kaleidoscopic recordings that is Spacemen 3's discography, Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To occupies a pivotal position – one at the nexus between their garage beginnings and expansionist future. Spacemen 3 capture the inspired spark of mid-'80s psychedelia, offering a distinct variation on high pop through layered feedback, a formidable rhythm section and shining vocals. Taking Drugs features the legendary Northampton demos, which secured the band's first record deal with Glass. While much of this material would be expanded upon on their first two albums, Sound Of Confusion and The Perfect Prescription, many devotees consider these early 1986 demos to be the vital document of Spacemen 3 at this primal stage.

With urgent, minimally treated versions of Sound Of Confusion (aka Walkin' With Jesus), Losing Touch With My Mind and Come Down Easy, this double Lp collection serves to exalt the strength of Spacemen 3's songwriting over the deep-dive, sonic ruminations that would permeate their later studio efforts.

Includes download card and new insert with liner notes by Byron Coley.
