Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized artist Natty Brooker to exhibit classic sleeve artwork
Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized collaborator Natty Brooker has announced a new exhibition of works spanning his entire career.

The artist, who is credited with introducing Spacemen 3 founding members Pete Kember and Jason Pierce (aka Sonic Boom and Jason Spaceman) to blues and gospel and also played drums on the band's debut album 'Sound Of Confusion', will hold two exhibitions in London and Sheffield.

Brooker, who has terminal cancer, is putting on the shows alongside his former Spacemen 3 bandmate Will Carruthers.

Carruthers said: "Natty is a genius, pure and simple. His influence as an artist on the British music scene was far reaching. What many people don’t know is that Natty now has terminal cancer, so this will be the first and last time people will have the opportunity to buy his stuff."

Prints of all the works will be available as a signed and numbered set of 14 for £1,200, while individual signed and numbered prints are available starting at £150.

Carruthers and Kember are confirmed to appear at the London exhibition, which will have live music and DJ sets, along with a number of other former Spaceman 3 members. Although Pierce lives nearby, an appearance by him has not been confirmed yet.

Natty Brooker's exhibition will take place at:

London, Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, 8pm–1am (July 15)
Sheffield, Smart Art Galleries, 8pm-1am (17)
