inhales the same fumes that fuel the velvets workout at the gymnasium, the stooges sleazy-fuzz with asheton on guitar & the groovy zen of ‘nigeria '70’.
the first pearl bestowed upon us in the form of a side project from philadelphia’s finest gnarled-out psych trio birds of maya was guitarist mike polizzes’ purling hiss, & now we have bass player jason killinger with his very killer & very screwy new project, spacin’. originally a basement-only solo thing consisting of killinger playing guitar through a pyramid of amps accompanied by a drum machine, spacin’ has started to squeak itself above ground & into the barrooms of the city with a fully functioning lineup."shows a unit who knows the economic gain to be had from a good, hypnotic riff. for those who have ever gotten lost for days in the strains of the velvet underground's ‘sister ray,’ jonathan richmans’ ‘roadrunner,’ hawkwinds’ ‘silver machine’ or even deep purples’ ‘space truckin', repeated listening to spacin’ is required in excessive doses” - tony rettman (philadelphia weekly).
