About this album

“Pure Phase” was the second album to be released by Spiritualized, released in 1995, and credited as “Spiritualized Electric Mainline” (Jason Pierce stated at the time that Spiritualized were actually called “Spiritualized Lazer Guided Melodies”, so titled after their debut, and nearly called them “Spiritualized Rocket Shaped Songs” for their next album, but soon rejected the latter idea) Again, the album saw a fluctuating lineup, with the band reduced to a core trio of Jason Pierce, Kate Radley and Sean Cook. Previous band member Mark Refoy and Jonny Mattock performed the main guitar and drums sections respectively, but by the time of album release, both men had been sacked from the band.

The album features contributions from The Balanescu Quartet. The track Born Never Asked is a cover of a song by Laurie Anderson. The track ‘Pure Phase’ was the basis for a limited edition release called Pure Phase Tones For DJ’s. , which consisted of 16 versions of Pure Phase, 4 on each side of the single playable at both 33 and 45rpm. The tracks were in the key of: C/F; D/G; E/A; F/Bflat; G/C; A/D; B/E; C/F, at varying frequencies. Jason intended that they were to be used as a set, in order to make chords. The ‘Pure Phase Tone’ also features heavily in Spiritualized’s live set to this day, playing in between songs and before they go onstage, acting as their entrance music of sorts.

The album was recorded in the Moles Studio, in Bath.

    I have it too. I don't know. Feel Like Goin' Home was such a perfect closer.

    HOLY SHIT. got the 2lp version, and the tracklist places Good Times after the end, with a reprise of Pure Phase, side D - the best part is it's a longer better version of Good Times, nice surprise!

    This album is absolutely beautiful. It brings together the perfect bits of it's predecessor and follow-up, proclaimed magnus opus Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, together in one package that is, in my opinion, one of the fullest and most brilliant albums ever to be made. So many ups, so many downs, so much atmosphere. To cut straight to the point: Listen to it, this album will reward you.

    One of the druggiest albums I've heard (a good thing). Hell, it starts off with a song called Medication. I think the second half drags a bit much, but otherwise, great album. Go Spaceman.

    I must say, this is my favorite Spiritualized album, though they're all beautiful. The music on this particular album cuts straight into my soul.
