Ladies and Gentlemen...

...We Are (Once Again) Floating In SpaceNews has been floating around for months about the multi-disc reissue of one of my all-time favorite LPs, Spiritualized 1997 epic Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space. The set includes two extra discs full of demos, a cappella and alternate versions -- including a version of Cop Shoot Cop with the subtitle of "Dr. John's National Anthem", which I imagine will be worth the cost of admission alone. Re-mixed artwork (above) as well as a recreation of the album's original blister-pack design that features each track in easily digestible 3" compact discs almost has my interest piqued enough to re-purchase an album in an antiquated format. Here's hoping it eventually makes its way to vinyl.

Milking a BSE cow perchance? Still don't know why he rammed his guitar through a Marshall stack after an excellent Summer gig in Galway supporting Primal Scream..
We forgive Jason for recycling the same three chord sequence over umpteen albums and L&GWAFIS should have been a triple album first time round..
.Moi? I'll wait till someone posts it...

Bombay Stock Exchange? It's only R'nR, but yes, I've managed to look the other way on the 3-chord recycling - nobody does it better.
