Jason Pierce has been on the other side, on several “other sides” in fact. During the times of Spacemen 3, Jason developed a taste for jumping between realities. He enjoyed delving into other dimensions (inebriating and quantum), exploring states of superior consciousness, having out of body experiences. He always came back. Even when he got dangerously close to the light at the end of the tunnel in the ER in 2005, he came back. That’s why, more than a creator of modern space rock, Jason is the medium through which we make contact with knowledge, beauty and the enigmas of the other side. And that is why, more than a cosmic garage ensemble, Spiritualized are a wormhole that connects space and time, be it through their classical repertoire or their new material accompanied by an orchestra and choir rocking us in zero gravity.
