Space Age present a reissue of Spacemen 3's Dreamweapon, originally released in 1990. August 1988, Spacemen 3 embarks on one of the strangest events in the band's already strange history. Billed as "An Evening Of Contemporary Sitar Music" -- although consciously omitting the sitar -- the group would play in the foyer of Watermans Arts Centre in Brentford, Middlesex to a largely unsuspecting and unsympathetic audience waiting to take their seats for Wim Wenders's film Wings of Desire (1987). Spacemen 3's proceeding set, forty-five minutes of repetitive drone-like guitar riffs, could be seen as the "Sweet Sister Ray" of '80s Britain. Digitally re-mastered by John Rivers at Woodbine Studios, November 2017. Six-panel foldout card wallet.
