SPACEMEN 3 “I LOVE YOU”
HOW TO LISTEN: SPEAKERS

EVER WANTED TO FEEL COOL? THEN LISTEN TO THIS SONG AND YOU’LL FEEL LIKE LOU REED IN NO TIME! THIS MAY BE THE MOST FAR-OUT, GROOVIEST SONG IN EXISTENCE! DON’T LET THE SPACEMEN 3 CREDIT FOOL YOU, THIS IS REALLY JUST A SPECTRUM/SONIC BOOM/PETE KEMBER SONG. SONIC BOOM AND SPIRITUALIZED’S RELATIONSHIP WAS DONE BY THE TIME THEY STARTED RECORDING RECURRING, AS THE A-SIDE IS ALL PETE AND THE B-SIDE IS ALL JASON. ENJOY!

Yo ,
yes , Andrew was there a whole bunch . he tried a bass take for me on something that we couldnt ‘find’ , but it was un-used . 4 of us including me & Noah tried it , but in the end it found its own solution . A & B were away when we started mixing , but I sent them mixes as we did them and Andrew particularly was regularly responsive & supportive & positive about it (at a time when some others outside of Noah & Me were'nt) .
Andrew usually lets me crash at his place if i’m working , and it’s seconds away from the studio .
I like to do as much at Blanker Unsinn as possible .
It’s a collaborative studio between MGMT & my go-to Engineer & best buddy -Nick Kramer - so it’s double nice.
Andrew & Ben also generously let the studio area be used by various of their friends w/ bands. Between the differant bods theres a fairly constant but chilled stream of interested parties/friends mooching thru . which I like ……
I wish I could quite articulate quite what a trip it is to work on stuff like MGMT & Panda Bear …. its a lot of fun…..
