R U Spaced Out 2 - Magic Mushroom Band
Release Date: 1993
Whilst Re-Hash was an experimental project, this was back to the more rock oriented style although with elements of electro and chill added to the mix to produce one of Magic Mushroom Band's best albums. It shows how great they were with driving tracks such as "New Day" alongside tracks such as the instrumental jam "Hubbly Bubbly", the Hawkwind cover "Hurry on Sundown", and one of Garry Moonboot's best ever compositions "Life Is So Strange". This album was probably the band's most successful reaching the Top 5 of the indie album chart (when this actually meant something!) whilst the limited edition Freshly Picked EP which featured an extended version of "Life Is So Strange" sold out immediately it was released and went high in the indie singles charts. The band also did a live session for Mark Radcliffe on Radio 1 where they performed an amazing version of "Hubbly Bubbly". The vinyl format of this release features a wonderful gatefold sleeve.
