Spiritualized, Seefeel: Shepherds Bush Empire, London

Andrew Smith, The Guardian, 27 February 1995

THE GHOST of St Jimi must have been smiling: this was a good night for guitars. First, the London quartet Seefeel set about deconstructing the instrument, coaxing from it a range of sweeping, otherworldly tones and textures, most of which one never would have guessed possible. Combined with the ethereal strains of Sarah Peacock's voice and a powerful rhythm section with a penchant for deep dub rhythms, this was where clubs meet indie culture. Seefeel were intense and absorbing, a delightful surprise for those who turned up early enough to see them.
