London-based Glass Redux Records, the sister label of Glass Modern Records, has announced a new black vinyl edition of ‘Fucked Up Inside‘ by British space rock legends Spiritualized. The LP was originally released in 1993 and it was the band’s first official live release.
Formed in 1990 in Rugby, Warwickshire by Jason Pierce (often known as J. Spaceman) after leaving Spacemen 3, Spiritualized members have changed from album to album, with Pierce being the only constant member.
The album’s seven tracks were recorded during Spiritualzed’s first U.S. tour at the Crest Theatre in San Diego and the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on November 1992. This reissue contains live performances of three songs from ‘Lazer Guided Melodies’, as well as cuts from ‘Pure Phase’ and a cover of Spaceman 3 ‘Walking With Jesus’.
The Glass Redux re-issues mark the first commercially distributed releases. The original sleeve design was faithfully re-created, the guitar effects pedals embossed and foil blocked. Available as heavyweight 180 gram vinyl, this record was re-mastered by John Rivers (Love and Rockets, Dead Can Dance, Xymox, Pop Will Eat Itself) at Woodbine Studios especially for vinyl release. It was released on CD last November, and limited edition clear vinyl for this year’s Record Store Day.
This album showcases the full hypnotic brilliance of the group’s remarkable live set on record. Songs like ‘Take Good Care of It’, ‘Shine a Light’ and ‘Smiles’ build and bloom with rare grandeur, crystallizing the epic sweep of Jason Pierce’s sonic vision.
This vinyl edition is available for pre-order via Bandcamp and will also be available in stores everywhere as of release day.
