Living: Review: Mainline electrics; SPIRITUALIZED Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton.


NEVER one to conform to the usual expectations of rock stars, Jason Pierce has maintained a relatively low profile since his current incarnation, Spiritualized, evolved from the ashes of the critically acclaimed Spacemen 3 in the early 90s.

The enigmatic frontman has, for the most part, preferred to let his music do the talking as Spiritualized rode a peak of popularity before descending, if we are to believe the rumours, into acrimony followed by multi-personnel changes.

But the seven-piece combo on this current tour showed that they could yet recapture the high ground.

Seemingly unperturbed by a late switch from the neighbouring Civic Hall because of poor ticket sales, they treated those who could be bothered to more than two hours of mood music at its best, if a little self-indulgent at times.

Truly electric mainline stuff.
