Spacemen 3 Heidelberg Germany January 20 1988

Spacemen 3
Schwimmbad Musik Club, Heidelberg, Germany
January - 20 - 1988

from MILAVALENTI collection # 057

The MILAVALENTI collection consists mostly of 80's and some 90's and 2000's masters in generally great sound. Most of the concerts
which will be uploaded from this collection are uncirculated. I met the taper who is an old friend of mine recently after more than 20 years.
He was happy to give me his very precious gems to be presented to a wider public. In the 80's I often went to concerts with him and sometimes
both of us were recording.
So some of the recordings which will be uploaded have been uploaded by me before as of my masters collections and some of his recordings
which had been uploaded by me already as first gen copies will now be re-uploaded as master transfers.
The musical style varies from "normal Rock acts" to Wave/Punk and Avantgarde. Also some German Post-Punk acts are included.

Master recording.
Recording equipment: SONY WM-D 6 with OKM 01 Headmicrophones

master tape / cass transfer via Onkyo tapedeck TA-2330 -> Magix Audio & Music Lab (edit/remaster) -> FLAC -> DIME
VG+/Ex-, some equalizing was done (check sample). Sound level adjusted.

Great recording in outstanding sound. It seems to be uncirculated. There was an upload on dime in 2013 stated to be this show but it wasn't. It was in fact the show from Munich on 26th of January as I have compared the respective recordings.

Spacemen 3 - Spot, Kassel, Germany - 1989-05-07 (SBD)

notes with this one ...

"Ripped from: JVC TD-W309 Double Cassette Deck to PC with Creative Labs Audigy 2 Sound Card.
Source Tape: Maxell XLII
Polderbits Sound Recorder to capture audio in WAV and to balance left and right audio channels.
Wavepad to split tracks and removes beginnings and ends of the tape.
No EQ, nothing touched in the sound. I leave that for you if you want to improve sound. Feel free to do the improvements you want to do with the sound of this gig.

01. Rollercoaster
02. Transparent Radiation
03. Things'll Never Be The Same
04. Take Me To The Other Side
05. Starship
06. Revolution
07. Suicide
08. Bo Diddley Jam
09. Mary-Anne
10. Revolution

Got this tape in a trade, back in 1996-1998 from Josh, a cool guy from Alaska (really! lol).
Very good-excellent sound quality from a decent soundboard. Not perfect anyway, there is a sligh drop out in the middle of Suicide and some others at the beginning of Rollercoaster which for sure were in the master, since I made the comparisons with ta couple of lossy version I found online and those also have those little problems. Nothing to worry about but if good to know about them.

An alternate source to this is around DC++ and the Internet. I also had that version, but I realised today it was a LOSSY version, probably sourced from a MD or from mp3 files (who cares anyway?). So, I decided to rip my tape and do the transfer since this tape is completely 100% lossless. I have made the pertinent analysis to arrive to this conclusion, using EAC and Audacity and the veredict found no argument. I also got a version through a DVD sent by Ian from www.spacemen3.co.uk but not compiled by him (he just made me the huge favour of sending me some DVDs which was sent to him by a guy at SPZ forum). This version had a similar frequency analysis compared with the lossy version downloaded from DC++ and it was, obviously, lossy, too. I will let know all the people that have this tape in the share to delete lossy versions and replace it with this one. Specially the people at Spacemen 3 Hub.

There is also a lot of discussion about the real year of this tape. The date in my tape is 1988, but some comparison with the setlits of 1989 Europe tour and similar dates in Germany hints that the concert is from 1989. Anyway I prefer to leave it as 1988 since I am not completely sure it is otherwise.

Please be patient since my upload speed is a shame.
Free to share this bootleg and to convert it to the format you like! Just doesn't distribute it in LOSSY formats.
DON'T SALE THIS BOOTLEG!!! It is just for trading/sharing/enjoying/tripping!!! Don't be stupid and make money with a bootleg. Respect the artists!!!
Support the band buying their official albums!

Spacemen 3 - Drummonds, Euston Road London 15.11.1988

Spacemen 3 live @ Drummonds, Euston Road (Sonic Boom) - 15.11.88. Advertised as "Sonic Boom & Jason of Spacemen 3". 
"Actually Jason didn't play at all, Will Carruthers played bass and Sonic played guitar and keyboard. Snippets of Honey and bits of his first solo album. Jason stood at the bar all night with his girlfriend."

1. Ode To Street Hassle/Angel

02. Ché

03. I Believe It

04. Honey

05. Mary-Anne
06. Transparent Radiation

"It is very important to know that Jason Pierce DID NOT PLAY in this gig. That was confirmed on at least two sources: the SP3 gig page mentioned above and a note from Ian Goodchild about this concert: 

"The Brentford Waterman's gig was a one-off - in a way - but was 
advertised as a Spacemen 3 gig (presumably because Jason couldn't make 
it? I don't know, but he was NOT at the gig, hence the unusual set: 
Sonic Boom, guitar and Keyboards; Will Carruthers, Bass & guitar; & 
unidentified guitarist/keyboards (probably Mark Refoy?) as far as I 
know, and it was a soundboard recording - quality is VERY good. It was a 
Spacemen 3 gig though...Sonic Boom's Spectrum gigs (of which I have a 
few early examples, and the tracklisting is predictable to say the least 
- Revolution and Suicide, anyone?) were very different to this. 

The tracklisting is right: it is the full version of Ode to Street 
Hassle, which segues into 'Angel' (the end coda from 'Well, Well, I 
guess/He just couldn't stand his life/without sweet heroin' repeated and
