Spacemen 3 – “Dreamweapon”

Grabbed this new-to-vinyl 2xLP release of this Spacemen 3 live performance. Originally titled “An Evening of Contemporary Sitar Music” the 1st LP is the 45-minute set they played in 1988 at Watermans Art Center in Brentford, London. The 2nd LP is more of their live drone-y work.

Don’t worry, Adam, I won’t be bringing it up on the podcast.
