Pete "Bassman" Bain, one of the founding members of the UK cult psych rock band Spacemen 3, formed Alpha Stone after Spacemen 3 and his other band The Darkside split up in the mid-nineties.

In 1996 the band recorded the album 'Stereophonic Pop Art Music' and it was released on Bomp! Records on CD.

The album hasn't had a "proper" vinyl release until now. You can clearly hear that Pete Bassman was the driving force behind Alpha Stone; fuzz, synthesiser -sweeps, programmed drums and processed vocals are the cornerstones in Alpha Stone's sound.

Raga-like mantras, heard in Farmer C, lies track to track with more percussion driven grooves and psychedelic pop oriented songs.

The album's sound has obviously survived the 20+ years shelved in obscurity and proves the "Drugby" sound still vital!
