Shoegaze Quote of the Day: Peter Kember of Spacemen 3 discusses drugs, technology and genetic mutants.



"Where are all the genetic mutants that acid was meant to cause? Governments have spent fortunes for years trying to prove that cannabis does you harm. It's the same old thing...I believe that whenever people are going through incredibly high-tech phases in society they eventually find that all the material gain is a mask for a very soul-less lifestyle, hence the need for alternative experiences and that's where the use of psychedelics comes in."

 - Peter Kember, Spacemen 3, 1989 NME Interview

  1. Taking acid in the midst of a society in the grip of a soul-less lifestyle can be kind of a bummer. But it does make one notice, eh?!
