Spiritualized - Live @ Gagarin 205 (23/5/2008)

Jason Pierce aka Spaceman @ Gagarin 205 (23/5/08)
The world is about to get Spiritualized again and just a few days before the official release date of the excellent new album "Songs in A&E", Jason Pierce (aka J Spaceman) and his crew found the perfect music space to launch their live journey from: the stage of the Gagarin 205 club in Athens. Five years after the last studio album and a near death experience later, Pierce is on fire once again and the Spiritualized live experience is a rich two-hour space odyssey, with past and future hits bolstered by gospel harmonies and propelled by intense guitar meltdown. Highlights of the evening included "You Lie You Cheat", "Come Together", "I Think I'm In Love" and there was even a few Spaceman 3 tracks on offer ("Lord Can You Hear Me?", "Take Me To The Other Side") to complete the out-of-body experience. The title of "Track I Wished They'd Played But Didn't" goes to "Death Take Your Fiddle". Maybe next time?
