Information:

We are delighted to bring Spectrum to The Lanes on May 14, the project formed in 1991 by Peter Kember (Sonic Boom / Spacemen 3).

Since the beginning of the 1980s, Pete “Sonic Boom” Kember has been exploring his unique vision of music and sound through different outputs, working with some crucial musicians (Eddie Prévost, Kevin Shields, Delia Derbyshire, Stereolab, just to name a few) and, mostly in the last few years, applying his touch to amazing pop/rock records from MGMT (“Congratulations”) to Panda Bear (“Tomboy”).

His career started in 1983 with Spacemen 3 alongside Jason Pierce, a band that helped define space-rock, shoegaze and drone-rock, recording albums that influenced an incalculable amount of bands up to the present day (and going). American Primitive music, Brian Wilson, Suicide, kraut rock, the British rave scene (the Kember half of “Recurring”) were decisive pieces of artistic information in what regards the band’s sound and Kember was the man behind some of the most iconic songs of the unit, like “Suicide”, “Losing Touch With My Mind” or “Big City (Everybody I Know Can Be Found Here)”.

When they disbanded, Pete Kember started new projects that he's kept progressing in to this day. Spectrum, which is a continuation of the more rock-based work he did in Spacemen 3, and E.A.R. (Experimental Audio Research), as the names suggests, is his vehicle for working in more abstract domains, making beautiful and mindblowing -mostly- synth-based pieces. With E.A.R. Kember worked with a ferocious and varied group of musicians, as are the cases of Eddie Prévost, Kevin Shields, Delia Derbyshire, Jessamine and Thomas Köner, both in studio and in live performance.
