  • Very limited! 25 copies only! Once these are gone they are gone!

    This limited edition physical release:

    Includes the entire 12-track album on CD-r, with printed label and foldaround printed sleeve in a plastic wallet.


    Includes an original sleeved vinyl copy of the 7" released in 1998 on Claytwins Recordings, featuring "Target Practice" and "Freakhouse".


    These 7"s were discovered recently in a forgotten cupboard at Local Underground HQ, no doubt left there when the band's merchandise stall was put into mothballs following their final gig. Please note before purchasing that they are slightly warped due to the adverse conditions in Rocker's bedroom, however they play just fine! (and besides, they are the only remaining copies that we are aware of).

    Includes immediate download of pdf file containing album artwork, band photos, gig flyers, etc. plus bonus video of 'Target Practice' 7".

    Includes unlimited streaming of Spectrasonic 2 via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Spectrasonic formed in 1990, following the split of cult Bristol, UK guitar band The Family. They were always a gigging band, and played their final gig in 1999, with main songwriter Mark Hymas going on to form McDowell in 2000.

The band went through many lineup changes, but the nucleus was always Mark (guitar & vocals), Simon Dodd (drums) and Rocker (keyboards), with Adam Mullinger on bass from around 1994. They were augmented by a series of other guitarists, guest musicians, and backing vocalists, generally playing out as a rather loud five, six, or even seven-piece band.

This release compiles the best of the band's recordings from their later years, 1997 - 1999, including the single "Target Practice", plus other songs recorded at the same sessions at Coach House studio in Clifton, as well as tracks recorded at Rocker's home studio.

Spectrasonic 1, featuring the band's recordings from the early '90s, should be released later in 2012 on Local Underground.
