The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective.

'Nam Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo' is a phrase which was expounded by a 13th century Japanese Buddhist monk called Nichiren.The chant translates to somewhere between "I devote myself to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra", or the more traditional "Öthe Wonderful Dharma of the Lotus Flower Teaching".

      Not previously released on vinyl Originally recorded in Seattle, in 2000 and released on CD only later the same year 'The Sundowner Sessions' is a recording featuring John Massoni (electronics) and Sonic Boom (custom human voice synthesizer). "[Sonic} can make something out of almost anything.He'd just pick out a tape of mine (I have a bunch of tapes with sound and drone experiments), and work something into a piece.His focus and ability not to be undermined by the limits surrounding him is really amazing to watch.We worked well into the night - thus 'The Sundowner Sessions' were born." - John Massoni. Never before released on vinyl but now re-mastered by John Rivers at Woodbine Street Studio especially for vinyl release for RSD 2020.

        LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.


        Yellow coloured heavyweight 180 gram audiophile vinyl LP Previously only released on limited edition black vinyl in 1989 Spacemen 3 were an English alternative rock band, formed in Rugby, Warwickshire by Peter Kember and Jason Pierce, known respectively under their pseudonyms Sonic Boom and J Spaceman.Their music is known for its brand of "minimalistic psychedelia". Spacemen 3 had their first independent chart hits in 1987, gaining a cult following, and going on to have greater success towards the end of the decade.However, they disbanded shortly afterwards, releasing their final studio album post-split in 1991 after an acrimonious parting of ways. They gained a reputation as a 'drug band' due to the members' drug-taking habits and Kember's candid interviews and outspoken opinions on recreational drug use.Kember and Pierce were the only members common to all line-ups of the band.Both founding members have enjoyed considerable success with their respective subsequent projects: Sonic Boom/Spectrum and Spiritualized. 'Threebie 3' is a live Spacemen 3 recording featuring performances from a 1988 gig at Melkweg in Amsterdam which were excluded from the live 'Performance' album.It was originally released in a strictly limited edition of 1,000 numbered copies which were only available via a mail order offer that came with the seminal and critically acclaimed Spacemen 3 'Playing with Fire' studio album released in 1989 which went to number 1 on the indie charts. Out of print for more than 30 years and now re-mastered by John Rivers at Woodbine Street Studio especially for vinyl release for RSD 2020.

        Forever Alien (RSD20 EDITION)

          LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.


          Orange coloured heavyweight 180 gram audiophile double vinyl LP Previously released on vinyl in 1997 British space rock band Spectrum is a project led by Peter Kember under the pseudonym Sonic Boom; an English singer and record producer.He was a founding member, bassist, vocalist and guitarist of alternative rock band Spacemen 3, lasting from 1982 until the band's dissolution in 1991. He provided the production on MGMT's sophomore album Congratulations, Panda Bear's albums Tomboy and Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, and Beach House's seventh album, eponymously titled '7'. As a solo artist, Kember has recorded as Spectrum and E.A.R.(Experimental Audio Research), parallel musical projects with recordings under both names occasionally only featuring Kember.He has occasionally performed live under both monikers, most recently as Spectrum, touring as a band in America and Europe.Kember has also played and collaborated with a number of artists, including Stereolab and Yo La Tengo. 'Forever Alien' is the third studio album by Spectrum.It was originally released in August 1997 by Space Age Recordings and has long been out of print on vinyl.After the band's preceding EP 'Songs for Owsley' moved away from guitar-oriented music and towards electronic music, 'Forever Alien' furthered this approach considerably, as Kember aimed to create a predominately electronic album that sounded organic and analogue in style.The record is dominated by vintage analogue synthesizers, including the EMS VCS 3 and EMS Synthi AKS.Kember had become fascinated by the synths as he felt they presented him with more musical possibilities than guitars. The resulting album fuses psychedelic music with influences from the 1960s electronic music of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.The track 'Feels Like I'm Slipping Away' from the album was released as a single and 'Forever Alien' had modest radio success in the US and also received acclaim from critics.Musicians such as Helena Hauff and Ekoplekz have since cited it among their favourite albums.Will Carruthers (ex-Spacemen 3) joined Spectrum on their 1997 tour in support of the album. Now re-mastered by John Rivers at Woodbine Street Studio especially for vinyl release for RSD 2020.

            Spacemen 3

            Live In Europe 1989

              Recorded over four nights in Germany during what turned out to be Spacemen 3's final tour, ‘Live in Europe 1989’ is far better than the more ragged earlier Spacemen 3 live album, 1988's ‘Performance’. The album's also notable for documenting the group's short-lived quartet line-up, with bassist Willie Carruthers and drummer Jon Mattock. Despite the change in rhythm sections, the focus is, as always, on guitarists Pete Kember and Jason Pierce, who by this point in the group's career aren't even pretending to be interested in standard verse-chorus-verse structure. Rather surprisingly, only one of the 13 tracks; a 16-minute take on Playing With Fire's centre-piece track ‘Suicide’ breaks the ten-minute barrier that was so often smashed through on the group's studio recordings, but there's still an epic, expansive feel to these loose, perfectly ragged performances. Although newcomers are advised to start with Playing with Fire or Recurring, Live in Europe 1989 is essential for fans.

                Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To

                  Re-mastered by John Rivers at Woodbine Studios especially for vinyl release. Includes a bonus track not on the CD version and new artwork design. Never has a record been so aptly titled, or so perfectly descriptive of a band's particular vision of the universe. For all that, the original appearance of Taking Drugs was in fact a bootleg on the semi-legendary/semi-notorious Father Yod imprint in 1990, later supplemented with contemporary outtakes and cuts for the Bomp reissue in 1994 and one further song for the Space Age version in 2000. The original seven tracks, dated January 1986 and the first recordings to feature Pete Bain on bass, are collectively known as the Northampton Demos, understandably named for the recording location in a studio outside said English city.

                  Both Sonic and Pierce have been on record as long preferring these takes to the eventual versions that surfaced for the most part on Sound of Confusion. Certainly it's a fine set of performances, showing a definite step toward the more familiar sound of the group and away from the rougher takes on For All the Fucked Up Children of the World. "The Sound of Confusion," aka "Walkin' With Jesus," rips along with fierce energy, Pierce's singing and the rampaging, primitive wail and rumble of the band just wonderful. "Losing Touch With My Mind" takes things to an even higher level, a huge wallop of feedback and beat (Natty Brooker's drumming in particular delivers just what the doctor ordered), Pierce delivering the lines with a flat, cutting drawl. On the slightly lighter tip, "Come Down Easy" is more or less fully in place (aside from singing about it being 1986!), possessing a more upfront but less vocally distinct feel than the Perfect Prescription take. The tracks that surfaced on the later reissues come from a variety of different sessions, including the original take on "Feel So Good" and a good live version of "Things'll Never Be the Same," one of several cuts featuring Brooker's drumming replacement Rosco.

                  Long awaited new full length album from Sonic Boom, and it's packed full of atonal wonder.
