For this edition of One Album Wonders we take a listen to Sonic Boom, who released one album, Spectrum, in 1989.
Sonic Boom is Peter Kember, an English musician born in Rugby in 1965. In 1982, whilst at Rugby Art College, he co-founded The Spacemen (later Spacemen 3) with Jason Pierce. After releasing two albums -- 1986's Sound Of Confusion and 1987's The Perfect Prescription -- Kember signed a deal with Silvertone Records for a solo album. On the resulting album, Spectrum, Kember's professed influences such as Suicide, The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, and early electronic music were all on display.
