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: http://www.nattybrooker.co.uk/gallery.html

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:

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?
