Trending Now

Jason Pierce may have been the architect but Spiritualized guitarist Mark Refoy was the labourer who gave 1992’s Laser Guided Melodies its luminous sparkle.

A decade on, Transcendental finds him still floating amid Velvet Underground crescendos and twinkling, richly romantic space rock (“Everything And Anything”). Graphic novel guru Alan Moore also makes a surprising cameo, reciting Edmund Blunden’s poem “Clare’s Ghost”. A far-flung branch on the Spacemen 3/Spiritualized family tree definitely worth investigating.
