SPECTRUM (Sonic Boom/Spaceman 3) - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
SPECTRUM (Sonic Boom/Spaceman 3)
Spectrum is the most song based of the projects undertaken by Pete ‘Sonic Boom’ Kember since the demise of Spacemen 3, which he co-founded with Jason Pierce in the '80's . Spectrum cover a variety of approaches though never losing sight of the hypnotic drones and psychedelic soundscapes that are his music’s trademark.

The band has a knack for manipulating their instruments into hypnotic, sensual and stimulating patterns, alternately lulling us into a trance-like state and diving down into the wah, feedback & fuzzed frenzy of their powerchord epics.

Sonic boom once sited ‘three chords good ,two chords better , one chord best’ - and has consistently wrought an array of moods & sounds based on this principle.

The first three Spectrum albums (Sonic Boom-Spectrum, Highs, Lows & Heavenly Blows, Soul Kiss (Glide Divine) are due for reissue during 2011 and some of this material will feature in the touring this year and in 2012. Featuring alongside material from the recent War Sucks EP and Spectrum's last collaborative album with the late Jim Dickinson (2008's Indian Giver), as well as a shifting look through the Spacemen 3 catalogue.

Best known for his projects including Spacemen 3 & Experimental Audio Research , Some people might know elements of Sonic boom’s work through some of the myriad collaborations over the last two decades with an array of artists including , the Silver Apples, Kevin Shields (MBV), Stereolab, Eddie Prevost( AMM), Delia Derbyshire (Radiophonic Workshop,) ,Psychic ills, Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500) , Jessamine , Stylus, James Luther Dickinson & Magnetophone .

Most recently Kember co-produced MGMT’s ‘Congratulations’ long player and has mixed & recorded the forthcoming ‘Tomboy’ album with Panda Bear.
The Black Ryder - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Black Ryder
With auspicious sensual textured layers of melody and guitars, both Scott Von Ryper and chanteuse Miss Aimee Nash weave a densely rich tapestry of love, sex and death, mountains, oceans and astral travel.

They indicate the way to the heart of life the centre of our humanity in ritual space, in crafted chords, in veiled waves of sonic tone and drone. Rich dangerous opiated swirling attacks on the third eye lysergic and lupine in equal measure. Once drawn in by this perfume its essence stays with the listener forever.

There is only one way to truly experience the journey and that is to listen to their debut album 'Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride'.

Self-produced, self-funded, self-realized. An act of necessity formed in earnest from the ashes…. Nash + Von Ryper locked themselves away to create this beautiful set of recordings.

We are struck be Aimee's beauty and Scott's sartorial gaze. They are assassins of experience of deep exploration broadcasting direct from the palace of wisdom. (Ian Astbury)
