about

I can confirm that should you ever find yourself on stage playing the bass guitar with three left hands, it is usually the one in the middle that is the real one. The other two are probably phantoms. Will Carruthers played the bass in Spacemen 3 and then Spiritulized, one of the bands which emerged from their ashes. In some ways his story is that of an everyman in your regular, dysfunctional band with a disposition towards psychedelic misadventures. But this is not your average tale of high jinks and debauchery. Playing the Bass with Three Left Hands chronicles a decade in the life of a man on a collision course with hard drugs, poverty, and Dionysian epiphanies. It's a window onto a world where the life of a musician is day-to-day and hand-to-mouth. And it is also one of the funniest and most honest rock 'n' roll memoirs committed to the page.
Will Carruthers has played bass in Spacemen 3, Spiritualised and Brian Jonestown Massacre, three of the most terrifyingly dysfunctional bands of all time.
