1. Product Details

Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. When Spacemen 3 - the seminal drone-indulgent English psych duo comprised of Peter Kember and Jason Pierce - split in 1991 Pierce shuffled off to acclaim in Spiritualized. Meanwhile Kember charted a less predictable course. As Sonic Boom he released Spectrum in 1990 then after taking a liking to that handle released Soul Kill Glide Divide as Spectrum in 1992. Kember alternated between those monikers and Experimental Audio Research E.A.R. throughout the 1990s building a rich probing catalog of synth and electronic explorations of which 1997s Forever Alien is an undeniable highpoint. With theremin vocoder and an array of modular analog synthesizers depicted lovingly in the cover art Kember along with Alf Hardy and Pete Bassman fused cosmische abstraction and the pulsation of minimalist composition to more traditional psych elements epitomized by early Pink Floyd. Landing between the unfettered experiments of E.A.R. and Spacemen 3s songcraft How Does it Feel is scarily reimagined Kember crafts unnerving atmosphere on the title track and an enduring catalog high point on the consummate opener Feels Like Im Slipping Away. Forever Alien leaves no doubts about the reasons for Kempers sought-after production today he played a vital role for Animal Collective and sculpted Panda Bears most recent album - nor the essential status of his post-Spacemen 3 output.
