Start a prolific psychedelic/space-rock band. Do every drug. Break up. Start a new band. Do every drug. Release two records. Tour. Open for Depeche Mode. Get forced off of the tour because crowds hate you. Have your girlfriend - who happens to be your keyboard player - break up with you and secretly marry a member of The Verve. Do more drugs. Write your breakout record. Become the last band to play at Factory Records' club "The Hacienda". Record a record that includes over 120 musicians on it. Keep touring. Release more music. Spend months in a hospital battling pneumonia, and be pronounced dead twice. Cheat death. Write more music. Keep touring. Keep living.

Ladies And Gentlemen, We Are Floating In Space is Spiritualized's 3rd studio album. It was considered the record that put them on the map. It's a classic. If you don't have it, get it. Enjoy a rainy week.


"Only philosophers embark on this perilous expedition to the outermost reaches of language and existence. Some of them fall off, but others cling on desperately and yell at the people nestling deep in the snug softness, stuffing themselves with delicious food and drink. 'Ladies and Gentlemen,' they yell, 'we are floating in space!' But none of the people down there care."

- Jostein Gaarder
