Sonic Boom


Pivotal character in the birth of a truly independent music scene in the UK for almost four decades, Peter Kember continues stolidly to forge a unique and fascinanting vision, as much idiosyncratic as open to new possibilities. Also known as Sonic Boom, an alias echoing his obsessive quest for sound as phenomena of mental elevation, Kember's body of work is as wide as mysterious, guided by a canny and adventurous intuition that feeds on multiple histories of rock, pop, drone, experimental or dance cultures to rewrite them in a new sphere of influence and transversal appeal.

A cult figure if there ever was one, but also much more than that. With the seminal Spacemen 3 Kember ventured into uncharted territories of psychedelia, conjuring the legacies of the Stooges, Velvet Underground, Suicide, krautrock and the work of minimalists like La Monte Young into new shapes of ecstasy and hypnosis, whose influence endures to this day. After their demise in 1991, whose swan song 'Recurring' already pointed the way towards future steps, Kember splits his musical persona between the drone rock tendencies of Spectrum and the experimental instincts of E.A.R. - Experimental Audio Research.
