This month's Electronic Sound cover star is Jason Pierce, aka J Spaceman, the main man of cosmic kings Spiritualized. We have a fantastic seven-inch – dual speed and white vinyl – featuring tracks from the band's extremely rare 'Pure Phase Tones For DJs' EP to accompany the magazine too.
We've had Jason Pierce in our sights since the announcement of the Spaceman Reissue Program, which sees the re-release of VIP editions of Spiritualized's first four albums, including 'Pure Phase' and 'Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space'. Jason has always been a high quality interviewee and we found him in terrific form, happy to chat about whatever we threw at him and serving up a cracking Kraftwerk tale along the way.
We're nothing without great stories, which is handy because we have Anni Hogan, John Grant, Moby, Hattie Cooke and Peace Chord in this issue too. To a man and woman, they’ve all got stuff to say. We also have an extract from 'Babble On An' Ting', a new book about Alex Paterson, plus pieces on ESG, Penelope Trappes, Andrew Hung and lots more besides.
We have a very special record to accompany the magazine as well. 'Purephase Tones' is a white vinyl seven-inch featuring two tracks from Spiritualized's ultra-rare 1996 EP 'Pure Phase Tones For DJs', mint copies of which now cost upwards of £50. Essentially a series of pulsing, hypnotic drones, they were intended to be used as tools in DJ sets and were regularly played at Spiritualized’s gigs during the late 1990s. Like the original release, our seven-inch is a dual speed disc, which means you can play it at both 33rpm and 45rpm. Ladies and gentlemen, this is vinyl voodoo at its best.
As with all of our seven-inch releases, this record is strictly limited and is only available to readers of Electronic Sound, so make sure you grab your copy right away… T-minus 30 seconds and counting... Astronauts report it feels good...
