STEREOLAB RELEASE SECOND BATCH OF THEIR EXPANDED & REMASTERED ALBUM REISSUES + TOUR DATES
EMPEROR TOMATO KETCHUP, DOTS AND LOOPS, & COBRA AND PHASES GROUP PLAY VOLTAGE IN THE MILKY NIGHT OUT NOW VIA WARP RECORDS & DUOPHONIC UHF DISKS
Stereolab continue their year-long seven album reissue campaign with today’s release of 1996’s Emperor Tomato Ketchup, 1997’s Dots and Loops, and 1999’s Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night as expanded and remastered editions on vinyl, compact disc, and digital via Warp Records and the band’s own Duophonic UHF Disks.
As with May’s reissues of Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements and Mars Audiac Quintet, each album has been remastered from the original 1/2″ tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by Tim Gane. Bonus material include alternate takes, 4 track demos and unreleased mixes.
The initial vinyl editions are pressed onto triple clear vinyl with a poster / insert containing sleeve notes by Tim. They 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.
Expect Stereolab’s 2019 reissues campaign to be completed with the release of Sound-Dust and Margerine Eclipse in November 2019.
Following a hugely successful recent UK run, Stereolab will continue to play live shows across 2019 – please see further below for a full touring itinerary.
