Stereolab Add Second London Date
Stereolab Add Second London Date!
Following the release of a new lp Margerine Eclipse on February 2nd, Stereolab are undertaking the following dates at the beginning of March. A second London show has now been added on 4th March at Islington Academy.
These are obviously the first dates since the death of Mary Hansen and a new line-up with extra musicians has now been confirmed. Joining regular Stereolab members Tim Gane, Laetitia Sadier, Andy Ramsay, Simon Johns and Dominic Jeffery will be Joe Watson and Joe Walters who between them will add keyboards, bass, electric guitars and French horn.
This promises to offer a completely revised set from any previous tours with the entire new lp and a number of classic Stereolab songs from the past being revisited or played for the first time live.
The Stereolab tour single will be a three track 3" cd only available at the live dates in the UK, Europe and US. There will be an edition of 500 7" vinyl copies available exclusively through the Stereolab webshop - www.stereolab.co.uk
The tracklisting for the single is as follows:-
1. Rose My Rocket Brain! [Rose Le Cerveau Electronique De Ma Fusee!]
2. Banana Monster Ne Repond Plus
