Rocker’s Guide Episode 10: Essential Albums Series – Spacemen 3 ‘The ‘The Perfect Prescription’.

Eamonn introduces Spacemen 3’s 1987 magnum opus ‘The Perfect Prescription’. From its Stooges-tinged foundations onward, it is a psychedelic masterpiece, long hailed for its supernova aural transcendence, dilated orchestral highs and spectral guitar ohms. Spacemen 3 re-drew the rock’n’roll landscape in a kolidascope of technicolour and heavenly feedback. This ‘concept’ album – ‘a vision of a drug trip from inception to its blasted conclusion’ – is a must-listen; an essential album in rock’n’roll’s DNA.
