FuckedUpFestiveFifty #51: Spiritualized

3 thoughts on “FuckedUpFestiveFifty #51: Spiritualized”

  1. I went right off Spiritualized after the “Ladies & Gentlemen…” album -even though I did buy some later singles… To tell you the truth I don’t know if I have this disc or not. Ever since my moving to Glasgow and back here I keep opening boxes and finding discs I don’t even remember having bought let alone having listened to. Flitting is such a bloody, huge drag. Anyway, opening boxes does somehow bring some nice surprises (e.g. a Spacemen 3 compilation on Munster Records) so i better keep at it.

    1. I know exactly where you’re coming from, JF. Having had quite a few big moves myself over the years – not to mention one of those horrible record divorces; two ex-lovers arguing over who purchased what – I’m still at the stage at lunging towards the vinyl piles. Only, instead of a record I’d have sworn blindly I had, there’s only a disc of dubious provenance, something I had no idea I owned.

      (And as I’m sure you know, this works equally well for books).

      But back to the issue at hand: I’ve never met a single J Spaceman fan who’d argue that tracks post Ladies & Gentlemen struck previous heights. Even the latest album is somewhat hit and miss (although a couple of tracks are utterly awe-inspiring). But you know me – I won’t hear a word against them; cut me in half, and I’d have “fanboy” written all the way through. Hmm…
