Ian Svenonius returns to the UK, cornering an array of musicians as they schlep their aural wares around Europe.
On this third episode of Soft Focus at ATP UK, Ian Svenonius sits down with one of the world’s greatest rock and roll experimentalists, Pete Kember. Famous for tripping out audiences with his musically minimalist contraptions under such monikers as Sonic Boom and E.A.R., Kember’s band, Spacemen 3, have left a peculiar and lasting mark on English rock and roll history.

In the second of this UK-based round of Soft Focus, Ian saddles up beside Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, perennially fine composers, writers, and artists—and one-half of Sonic Youth. After twice escaping certain disaster, first at the hands of a disappearing interviewee and second at a few haphazardly placed plastic water bottles, Ian recaptures this episode and once again delivers on his promise of insightful, fruit-bearing conversation.
