Sonic Boom, leader of Spacemen 3 and Spectrum has remixed 2 tracks from Insect Guide’s debut album. Fresh from co-writing and mixing with Dean & Britta, Fuxa, Magnetophone and the legendary Jim Dickinson (Big Star/Dylan), Sonic turns his sublime and distinctive style to Insect Guide.
The tracks ‘Frozen’ and ‘David Hero’ will be available on limited edition CD (with hand-numbered printed bags), and to download from the amazing Northern Star Records.
The price is £3.50 (inc. delivery) and available from 14th January from the band’s website.
The release continues on from a great 2007 for Insect Guide: Uncut named '6ft In Love' as one of its "debut albums of the month"; the band’s version of Dinosaur Jr’s 'Freak Scene' was described by the NME as "an amazing cover, slowed down and pumped full of mogadon"; and Steve Lamacq regularly played 'Liline' on his Radio 6 show.
