Spaceman 3: Logo #18
Speaking of eyes, this symbol, designed by Pete "Bassman" Bain in 1986, gazes out with hypnotic lightning, zonking you into blissful submission with the implication of fertile and colorful sound. It should be noted that the same year this logo emerged, Spaceman 3 recorded the demos that would become the "Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To" LP, which is one of the better titles ever imagined. Look at that comforting, all-inclusive circle. Isn't that nice? Completely erases the urge to do the whole "Niagara Falls" thing. Member Pete Kember would go on to become Sonic Boom, and co-founder Jason Pierce became Spiritualized, as would you if you listened to the grace of their collected works intently and repeatedly.
