Spiritualized are an English space rock band formed in 1990 in Rugby, Warwickshire by Jason Pierce (who often goes by the alias J. Spaceman) after the demise of his previous outfit, space-rockers Spacemen 3. The membership of Spiritualized has changed from album to album, with Pierce-who writes, composes and sings all of the band's material-being the only constant member. Spiritualized has released six studio albums. The best known and most critically acclaimed of these was 1997's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space, which NME Magazine made their Album of the Year.

My favourite of the fest and I missed the second half of the set to watch Glasvegas who were dull

should have been the headline act. kasabian are a joke

You had to be there.The spacemen 3 songs still sounded fresh.

Spiritualised have had good times and bad - this was definitely one of the good. Brilliant set. along with Sigur Ros and Grinderman were the highlight of the festival.

It was a great set. Easily my favourite of the festival.
