Spacemen 3 circa 1986

Fire Records today announced plans to reissue the full catalog of mind-bending and highly influential ’80s psych-rockers Spacemen 3 — featuring Peter “Sonic Boom” Kember and a pre-Spiritualized Jason “J. Spaceman” Pierce — on 180-gram colored vinyl, beginning next week with the band’s first two studio LPs and a follow-up live set.

On May 14, Fire will release audiophile vinyl editions of 1986 debut Sound of Confusion, 1987 follow-up The Perfect Prescription and 1988 live album Performance as part of what’s being billed as “the first stage in Fire Records’ comprehensive Spacemen 3 reissue campaign.” The releases mark the first time the albums have been released on vinyl in the U.S., according to the label.

Each features the original tracklist, which you can see below — and sample one song off each record.
