Default Spiritualized to Perform, Reissue Ladies and Gentlemen

this will be worth the short hop to london


Spiritualized to Perform, Reissue Ladies and Gentlemen

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At ATP's Don't Look Back shows, bands play their classic albums straight through. It's a good idea, one that worked great at the last two Pitchfork Music Festivals when bands like Sonic Youth and Public Enemy reprised their defining works. But even the best albums usually have filler tracks or zone-out stretches that inevitably end up sounding a bit flat live. For an album to work in this kind of setting, it needs peaks and valleys, quiet moments and climactic ragers. It needs something like a narrative arc, and it has to unfurl just right.

Spritualized's 1997 drug-rock breakup opus Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space is basically the perfect Don't Look Back album. Now, the band will bring it to the stage of London's Royal Festival Hall for a Don't Look Back show on October 12. This is the sort of thing that makes me wish I could afford plane tickets.

Ladies and Gentlemen, arguably the band's best album, moves gracefully from expansive blissout moments like the title track to stormy classic-rock bangers like "Come Together" and culminates in the 17-minute junkie free-jazz epic "Cop Shoot Cop", which will absolutely wreck everybody's shit live, especially if the ATP folks spring for a decent light show. And when the band plays this ambitious, gorgeously produced record live, they'll do it right, bringing a gospel choir, string and horn sections, and special guests with them.

Sony will reissue Ladies and Gentlemen in October with "added content and new packaging," according to the Spiritualized website. This sounds pretty badass, even if Sony has basically no chance of improving on the fake prescription bottle packaging of the original.

Lazer Guided Melodies would be a much better choice for such a show imho. But that would hardly attract the same attention.

When did they break up? Couldn't have been that long ago. Bands are probably breaking up these days just in the hope ATP through wads of cash at them for those gigs.

EDIT: thought it said reform, not perform. ignore unfounded cynicism.
