Playing the Bass With Three Left HandsBook - 2016
"They came from Rugby, a small town in the Midlands. For a few brief years at the end of the 1980s, their music - a blend of Krautrock, gospel, blues and psychedelia - was a cosmic godsend. In 1989, on the verge of breakthrough success, the band imploded, and with the release of Recurring Spacemen 3, were no more. Almost three decades on, their influence and legacy can be seen and heard everywhere, from MGMTto Wooden Ships, Brian Jonestown Massacre to Jagwar Ha. Like the Stone Roses, Spacemen 3 effortlessy captured the moment acid house collided with underground rock. Will Carruthers played the bass in Spacemen 3 and then in Spiritualized, one of the bands which emerged from their ashes."--Cover flap.
