SKU: PURE11LPX Categories: ,

Product Description

 Too Pure and Beggars Arkive reissue ‘Peng!’ on clear


 ‘Peng!’ is the band’s 1992 debut album. ‘The Groop

Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music’ is an 8-track

mini album, released in 1993.

 Often noted as being one of the most influential and

original bands of the 90s, Stereolab were formed by

Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier in London in 1990 and

released 13 studio albums, 15 EPs and numerous

singles. Simon Reynolds commented in Rolling Stone

that the group’s early records form “an endlessly

seductive body of work that sounds always the same,

always different.”

 They are often noted as being one of the most

influential and original bands of the 90s. Theirs is a

rich, overflowing palette, readily able to blur the gulf

between Os Mutantes and the BBC Radiophonic

Orchestra; merge Krzysztof Komeda with the Velvet

Underground, Francoise Hardy with Neu! and Burt

Bacharach with Esquivel. A deluxe blend, in other

words, with ingredients plucked assiduously from

pop’s coolest outposts: 50’s lounge, Rive Gauche

chanson, Brazilian tropicalia, North American art rock,

East European film music, Krautrock. hi-fi test

recordings, mood music and more. Somehow they

distil these apparently incongruent components into

an ageless exotica that is all their own.
