** "OD Catastrophe" is basically "[[Music/TheStooges TV Eye]]" with slightly different lyrics.


The band disbanded in 1991 amid worsening tensions between Pierce and Kember. Their last album, ''Recurring'', reflected this, with the two sides being recorded by the two separately in different studios. Pierce has since gone on to popularity, acclaim and success with Music/{{Spiritualized}}, while Kember founded Spectrum and did... [[strike:pretty much fuck all]] weird drone music with [[Music/MyBloodyValentine Kevin Shields]] (as [[FunWithAcronyms Experimental Audio Research]]).

Opinions on Spacemen 3 tend to be split a few ways. Either: they are just as good as, better than or worse than {{Spiritualized}}. There's also the issue of their love of extreme repetition and long jamming.

The band was known for its fanatical focus on minimalism and psychedelia, adopting the motto "taking drugs to make music to take drugs to" (later the name of a compilation). Their sound was based around droning guitars, feedback, monotonous rhythms, CreepyMonotone vocals and [[EpicRocking extended song lengths]]. Pierce and Kember shared an affinity for {{Shout Out}}s to their favourite musicians in both song titles, lyrics and interviews, with names cited as influences including The Music/VelvetUnderground, Music/TheStooges, Music/{{MC5}}, CaptainBeefheart, Music/{{Kraftwerk}}, The13thFloorElevators, The Electric Prunes, various blues and gospel acts (Muddy Waters, BoDiddley, the Staple Singers and John Lee Hooker) and the production techniques of Joe Meek, [[Music/TheBeachBoys Brian Wilson]] and Delia Derbyshire.
