I’ve been listening to a lot of this band recently. Anyone a fan? Saw them live? Favourite album? Favourite song?
I first heard of them on The Evening Session in 1994. Their song Ping Pong was getting a lot of radio play. Instantly catchy and with interesting left leaning economic theory as its lyrics. A brilliant song. Mars Audiac Quintet is my favourite album of theirs. So many great songs on it.
My favourite song is probably Lo Boob Oscillator. An excellent song and its sound probably sums up Stereolab for me, A fantastic band that tragically lost a member in a fatal bike accident in 2002.
I’ve seen them a couple of times. Once supporting Pulp at Brixton in 1995 and again at Shepherds Bush Empire in 2002. Great fun both times. I havent seen Laetitia Sadier live solo yet. Tempted for her Dalston gig in a few weeks.
