video: Spiritualized at World Trade Center

Shot atop the World Trade Center in April of 1996 on the Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating In Space tour, these intimate videos not only provide an up close and personal view of the band at its peak, but also show just how much J. Spaceman and his evolving troupe have grown since their heyday as the Spacerock band of '90s. In layman's terms, no string sections or Gospel singers, just face melting, heart pounding psychedelia. I haven't snagged it yet but there is also a torrent of the show that has been hovering around the web. And if that doesn't cure your fiendish appetite for old school Spiritualized, then head over to the "Complimentary Medicines" section of band's website for some rarities, live cuts, alternative mixes, demos, outtakes and a few choice John Peel recordings.

I believe that show was 1998.
