SPACEMEN 3 - BIG CITY/DRIVE
Fire Records 1991.
01. Big City (Everybody I Know Can Be Found Here)
03. Big City (Waves of Joy Demo)
04. Drive (Demo)
'Big City'/'Drive' was released ahead of the final Spacemen 3 album 'Recurring'. Sporadically recorded and mixed throughout 1990, relations between Kember and Pierce had completely broken down during the sessions. The result was that each composer had a side of the record each for their own compositions.
The music didn't suffer however; 'Big City' was a ten minute acid house pulse and 'Drive' was acid bluesy and hymnal, pointing toward each artists future solo career.
