A once in a lifetime musical meeting between Spectrum (Sonic Boom from Spaceman 3) and legendary producer Jim Dickinson (Big Star, etc...).

Featuring a cover of Mudhoney's "When Tomorrow Hits"

A few years ago Sonic Boom (Spaceman 3, Spectrum, EAR) traveled to Independence Mississippi to work with legendary producer Jim Dickinson aka Captain Memphis. The result is the record Indian Giver, a true collaboration that finds both artists sharing a stage and sharing their musical visions.

"The Lonesome Death Of Johnny Ace", a biopic-epic groover shows the two musicians playing off a southern fried radiation telling the tale of a of a famous singer's Russian Roulette tragedy on Christmas day. The rest of the album finds Sonic revisiting his past: a new, fuzzier rendition of Mudhoney's "When Tomorrow Hits", a revamped version of ultra-rare Spectrum popper T"Take Your Time" and Spaceman 3 staple "Hey Man (Amen)" where Dickinson throws down some back-ups. The Dickinson tunes are brand new and eerie...with his resuscitations backed by ecstatic symphonies.

The record is book ended by new Spectrum number "Mary", which carries with it a decidedly NEU! Theme. A once in a lifetime musical meeting and a resultant sound that could only have come from these two musical icons.
