Homer gets high to Spacemen 3 in new episode of ‘The Simpsons’
Spacemen 3 soundtracked the season premiere of The Simpsons this weekend.
Season 27 has Homer Simpson going through a trial separation with wife Marge, starting a new relationship with a character voiced by Lena Dunham.
In episode one, Homer and Dunham’s character mix alcohol with prescription drugs before embarking on a psychedelic trip to Spacemen 3’s ‘Big City (Everybody I Know Can be Found Here)’.
Spacemen 3 member Peter ‘Sonic Boom’ Kember told the publication that he usually rejects offers to use the group’s songs, but that The Simpsons was too good to refuse.
He said, “When I saw the script I was psyched. I couldn’t imagine a sweeter use of that track in this context, and particularly in context of a ‘trip’ scene. [That is] something that’s usually for me a high point of ‘The Simpsons’ oeuvre. I imagine it is what people in bands secretly, or openly, dream of. Animation is so useful for these sort of stretches of reality.”
Spacemen 3, featuring Spiritualized’s Jason Pierce, formed in 1983 and split in 1990.
