As with May’s reissues of Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements and Mars Audiac Quintet, and September’s reissues of Emperor Tomato Ketchup, Dots and Loops, and Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night, each album in November’s final batch has been remastered from the original 1/2″ tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by Tim Gane. Bonus material will include unreleased demos and tracks from rare tour singles.
The initial vinyl editions will be pressed onto triple clear vinyl with a poster / insert containing sleeve notes by Tim. They will also include a lottery style scratch card – all winners will receive an exclusive Stereolab record at the end of 2019.
The band continue to produce super limited editions of 500 clear vinyl copies and 250 compact disks – each will have a numbered obi band made from 2″ 24 track Stereolab master tape. These will only be available via mail order from the website.
Following a hugely successful UK run this summer, Stereolab will continue to play live shows across North America and Europe for the rest of 2019 – please see further below for a full touring itinerary. Pre-order Margerine Eclipse here. Pre-order Sound-Dust here
