    Check out Experimental Audio Research radio for some great tunes!!! EXPERIMENTAL AUDIO RESEARCH is a psychedelic / drone project formed in 1990 by Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) as a solo and collaborative ensemble in order to pursue the more experimental work he had contributed to Spacemen 3 since the 1980s. :D

    I would really appreciate it if someone knew the set list for a 'Breezeblock Session' that Sonic. This was broadcast back in 1998 on Mary Ann Hobb's show. It was loads of ambient stuff.

    Smacked off my tits with a casio keyboard, living the dream. Spacemen 3 rock, but Mr Boom went a bit up his own arse and Mr Pierce eventually convinced me he was main talent in Spacemen. I so wanted it to be Mr Kember as well, I had the haircut, pasty face and everything (well not the privelidged public school background but hey). Any cutting to the chase. Spiritualized won the war, move on, get over it.
