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.
The debut album “Sound Of Confusion” is now presented on 180 gram white vinyl. Released in 1986, it was a blistering affair – establishing their love of the two-chord song and also expressing their admiration for the likes of MC5, The 13th Floor Elevators and The Stooges. Sound of Confusion was 7 tracks of overdriven assault, with a strange bleakness and despair creeping through the hypnotic sprawl. R Hunter Gibson would later say: “It boosts the value of unlit rooms, unpaid debts and unfeigned terror and it would rather tackle the gradients than settle for level best.”
