LISTEN: Edgar Wright shares the complete soundtrack to Spaced!

Oh yes! How’s that for a slice of fried gold?!

During a live twitter watchalong of Spaced, director Edgar Wright shared a full play list of tunes from the now iconic sitcom.

Spaced was created, written by and starred Simon Pegg as Tim Bisley and Jessica Stevenson as Daisy Steiner and was directed by Wright. It also starred Nick Frost as Mike, Katy Carmichael as Twist, Mark Heap as Brian and Julia Deakin as Marsha.

The series hit in 1999 while I was at university and, like Clerks, it summed up exactly my life at the time – the struggles, the influences, the attitude, Pegg, Stevenson and Wright encapsulated life for me – and many, many others – just as Kevin Smith was doing across the pond.

The show’s characters, themes and stories were all familiar and just as important at the time was the playlist of the show and finally, we have it all in one place.

So sit back, play some Resident Evil and let your ears indulge themselves. The weekend starts here.


Tim, a comic book artist who just broke up with the love of his life, and Daisy, an aspiring writer, meet by chance and decide to pose as a professional couple to secure a relatively cheap flat.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
