Spiritualized's Jason Pierce

Ian Gittins, The National (UAE), 23 May 2008

JASON PIERCE is the great unsung hero of British rock music. As the singer, songwriter and philosophical pulse of his epic rock band, Spiritualized, he has written and performed some of the most audacious, ambitious and moving music of his generation. He is a remarkable, driven figure who chronicles his life in his art and recently came within a whisker of chronicling his death in it – and yet you have probably never heard of him.
