The Lab Report

20-02-2019

To Whoever,

Welcome to the first Lab Report in a very long time. The photocopied pages have been replaced by electronic mail correspondence but the information remains the same - Stereolab updates.

Following on from the recently released, remastered versions of Switched On, Refried Ectoplasm [Switched On Volume 2] and Aluminum Tunes [Switched On Volume 3] we can confirm that Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements, Mars Audiac Quintet, Emperor Tomato Ketchup, Dots and Loops, Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night, Sound-Dust and Margerine Eclipse will all be reissued across 2019.

We've been planning these reissues for a long time but 3rd May 2019 will finally see the start of the reissue campaign when 1993's 'Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements' and 1994's 'Mars Audiac Quintet' will be released, via Warp Records and Duophonic UHF Disks, as expanded and re-mastered editions on vinyl, compact disk and digital.

Each album has been re-mastered from the original 1/2" tapes by Bo Kondren at Clayx Mastering and overseen by Tim. Bonus material will include alternate takes, 4 track demos and unreleased mixes. 

The initial vinyl edition of 2500 numbered copies will be pressed onto triple clear vinyl, each will include a lottery style scratch card - all winners will receive a limited edition 12" EP by early 2020

All vinyl copies will include a 24" x 24" fold out poster with sleeve notes by Tim and any lyrics missing from the original albums printed on the reverse. The 2 CD digipak edition will include the sleeve notes and lyrics within the CD booklet

In true Stereolab / Duophonic tradition we have also produced a super limited edition 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 our website - link here - We've also added a few bits and pieces of old stock to the web shop.

Expect the reissues of Emperor Tomato Ketchup, Dots and Loops and Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky night in August 2019 with Sound-Dust and Margerine Eclipse being released in November 2019

Aside from the already announced festival dates we also have a few club shows confirmed - if you're receiving this e-mail then you'll have a chance to purchase tickets via the fans pre-sale. Presale begins Thursday 21 February at 10am local time. You'll be sent an access code later today. See a full list of dates below.

We're still working on a few more shows for later in the year, we'll post details as soon as we have them.

Cheerio,

Pikey
