2001: A Spiritualized Odyssey

"In 2008, The Almighty Sound published their first film project; a sync of the music of British blues / gospel / stoner rockers Spiritualized to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 masterpiece '2001 :A Space Odyssey'. You will never watch this film the same way again."

The Godmother of Rock & Roll - Sister Rosetta Tharpe

The Godmother of Rock & Roll - Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Remember the 60min documentary about Sister Rosetta Tharpe that was on BBC4 just over a week ago ( Well I ripped it from the BBC iPlayer, converted to avi and uploaded it to Megaupload for anyone who wants it - a 257MB version and a 1.01GB version (higher quality).

The Godmother of Rock & Roll- Sister Rosetta Tharpe - LO-RES VERSION [257MB]

The Godmother of Rock & Roll- Sister Rosetta Tharpe - HI-RES VERSION [1.01GB split into two rar files]
part1 [700MB]-
part2 [300MB]-

(NB: If Megaupload says "The file you are trying to access is temporarily unavailable" then just try again every 10 minutes or so. The file will eventually become available.)

During the 40s, 50s and 60s Sister Rosetta Tharpe played a highly significant role in the creation of rock & roll, inspiring musicians like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Little Richard and Chuck Berry. She may not be a household name, but this flamboyant African-American gospel singing superstar, with her spectacular virtuosity on the newly-electrified guitar, was one of the most influential popular musicians of the 20th century. Tharpe was born in 1915, close to the Mississippi in Cotton Plant, Arkansas. At the age of six she was taken by her evangelist mother Katie Bell to Chicago to join Roberts Temple, Church of God in Christ, where she developed her distinctive style of singing and guitar playing. At the age of 23 she left the church and went to New York to join the world of show business, signing with Decca Records. For the following 30 years she performed extensively to packed houses in the USA and subsequently Europe, before her death in 1973. In 2008 the state governor of Pennsylvania declared that henceforth January 11th will be Sister Rosetta Tharpe Day in recognition of her remarkable musical legacy.

Spacemen 3 reunion (almost) - London 15/07/2010

Natty Brooker created the artwork for Spiritualized's "Lazer guided melodies" and Spacemen 3's "Recurring", as well as playing drums on Spacemen 3's "Sound Of confusion". He was a key influence on the whole spacemen 3 aesthetic. Sadly Natty has terminal bone cancer. It is in the light of this that he has agreed to share his work. A number of limited edition prints have now been made available for purchase here:

On the 15th of July 2010 there was an exhibition of Natty's art at the Hoxton Bar & Grill in London.
That night few of Natty's old friends got together.....
Pete 'Sonic Boom' Kember, Will Carruthers, Mark Refoy and Jonny Mattock joined forces with Pat Fish (aka The Jazz Butcher) Kevin Shields (of My Bloody Valentine), Jason Holt (of Spectrum) and Dean Koolaid (of The Koolaid Electric Company) and this is what happened:

Walking With Jesus



video coming soon

Filmed and mastered by Neil Rudd of Eat Lights;Become Lights -

I was so lucky to have made it down to this event. It was a last minute thing for me, but I am so glad I managed to get the time of work. Such an unforgettable night. I never got to see the Spacemen when they were around originally, so I guess this was the next best thing.
So, the question is, will a Spacemen 3 get-together like this happen again?

Spiritualized - Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space live in NY - 30-07-2010 - AUDIO RIP

Well, here it comes, here comes the sound......
Spiritualized - LAGWAFIS live @ Radio City Music Hall NY - 30-07-10 (Webstream audio rip @ 192kbps mp3) -----
Thanks to 'shalloboi' on the Spiritualized forum for ripping this. Sounds absolutely gorgeous.

Here's a video rip of the last 50mins of the videowebcast of the show - 'No God Only Religion', 'Cool Waves', 'Cop Shoot Cop', 'Out Of Sight', 'Oh Happy Day'.  Not sure who originally ripped this, but I downloaded it as a torrent and re-upped it to megaupload.  (600MB mpeg)
(As with any Megaupload links, if it says the file is temporarily unavailable then just try again later.)

There is a torrent of the full video webcast located on Demonoid. It's not fantastic video quality, but it does the trick. I don't believe there are any other versions of it out there.
(Note that with Demonoid sometimes it won't let you open a torrent link without an account. If so, just try again later. It'll eventually open up without the need for you to register.)
