Spacemen 3 - The Perfect Prescription (1987)
Spacemen 3 était un English alternative rock band, formé en 1982 by Peter Kember and Jason Pierce. Leur music était "colourfully mind-altering, but not in the sense of the acid rock of the 1960s; instead, the band developed its own minimalistic psychedelia ».
The Perfect Prescription est the second studio album by Spacemen 3. C’est un concept album, "a vision of a drug trip from inception to its blasted conclusion, highs and lows fully intact."
The music becomes progressively more orchestral and serene until the high of the trip, represented by "Ecstasy Symphony"/"Transparent Radiation (Flashback)," moving on to the moment of realisation where the high has faded and the comedown ensues, represented by the harsh opening guitar chords in "Things'll Never Be the Same."
Coming down is represented in the blues based "Come Down Easy," whilst the potentially fatal effects of an overdose are portrayed in the final track "Call the Doctor."
Tout un programme.
J'étais passé à côté de ce groupe.
On ne peut pas être partout.
Si l'on n'y prend garde, l'avidité nous transforme en bibliothécaires.
