14 Things'll Never Be The Same [Live at The Mean Fiddler, August 1986]
15 Spacemen Jam [1986 rehearsal]
Throughout the second half of 2020, I was compiling information on Spacemen 3 records and releases via a request on an S3 fan group / forum. Their discography is such a nightmare and the list was exhausting to make. Now it's done, it has informed a set of compilations; essentially, tracks that do not appear on the original four albums or the original run of singles and E.P.'s, assembled chronologically.
This includes all tracks that appeared on miscellaneous releases and various artist compilations during their lifetime, as well as tracks that have appeared on the many posthumous albums.
I'll be posting these volume compilations as I complete them.
Tracks 1-8 recorded at Studio Morocco, January 1986. Released on 'Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To' (Father Yod 1990).
Track 9 recorded at Bob Lamb's studio, Rugby, Spring 1986. Released on 'Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To' (Bomp Records 1994).
Tracks 10-13 released on 'How The Blues Should've Turned Out' (Sonic Boom self released 2005).
Track 14 recorded live at The Mean Fiddler, August 1986. Released on 'How The Blues Should've Turned Out' (Sonic Boom self released 2005).
Track 15 rehearsal recording, 1986. Released on 'Dreamweapon' (Sympathy for the Record Industry 1995).
After the official compilation of unreleased material by The Velvet Underground (itself after the 1980's 'V.U', 'Another View' and countless bootlegs), I thought I'd present my own effort.
For those who don't know, The Velvet Underground recorded a lot of material throughout 1969, inbetween constant touring.
A new label boss of MGM/Verve decided to cancel the contracts of several bands; particularly those with drug connections. They also retained any tapes; all the 1969 material, plus some leftover tracks from years previous with John Cale.
