  • That sure isn't original to say Stereolab bit Neu; it's about as clever as dismissing Broadcast with that pesky United States of America comparison.

    Saying Broadcast has been "sonning" Stereolab is about the most moronic thing I've read on here in a minute -- considering Stereolab gave Broadcast their break by releasing their first records, and the fact that they're all friends. It's not we're talking about some rap beef or something. Broadcast is great and so is Stereolab, anyone who says otherwise simply doesn't know what they're talking about.

    Yeah, and fyi in spite of not being that hip anymore Stereolab released top work literally last fuckin week.

    Yeah, just like all funk and soul records.
    Best Stereolab? Jenny Ondioline.

    i think that's dependent on having never heard Neu!... after which stereolab just come off as the most unoriginal biters of all time.
    Broadcast has been sonning Stereolab for years. They fell off after 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup' and 'Dots And Loops'. Both groups could be labelled as krautrock and exotica biters, but I still like it a lot. 'HaHa Sound' gets mucho airtime when I feel all indie and emo. Haven't heard the new one yet.

    A lot of baloney about Stereolab going on in this thread. I'm familiar with Neu! and I have plenty of schitt going back to the early 60s that Stereolab took elements from too, and I have absolutely no problem saying they're one of the greats of our time. Broadcast is fine, but their robbery is far more limited (at least on their first and only really good record IMO, which is a complete ripoff of the United States of America LP) and less interesting

    The more recent Stereolab stuff isn't essential or anything but the fact is they've never fallen off (and always put on a good show)

    and your point is??

    both bands based their entire rep / steeze / sound / hipster quotient / CAREERS on the back of some pretty slick fast ones they pulled over a massively naive / clueless indyrock audience.

    if you wanna play the game that way fine and dandy but don't expect to not get called for the foul.

    but does Stereolab's entourage pack as much heat as Broadcasts entourage?

    Relax guys. I don't give a damn about comparisons. If the music is good, it's good. I love Stereolab, I do have a lot of their recent stuff, I have seen them perform in recent years, I just don't put the newer albums on that often. They often seem like regurgitations of earlier material. Maybe I'm jaded, sorry.



    OK, admitted, I don't have the latest one. Give me a good sales pitch and maybe my interest in Stereolab will be rekindled. I want to believe.



    (sorry for the threadhoggin', Mack. I'll shut up now)

    Sorry to keep this going, but...

    I think the key phrase here is "hipster quotent"; you're so blinded by your dubious hatting (pun intended... you sound straight up racialist) that you're acting as if these groups are about fashion and trends... Whatever dude. Few "indyrock" figures have been more open and magnanamous about sharing their love of all musics, wearing their influences on their sleeves and popularizing the fuck out of their favorites. I actually can't think of anyone in 90s indie who did more to educate his audience than Tim Gane. And having met him personally I can say he's about the sweetest, most humble person in the world. But I suppose for some people no amount of proper respect given is enough when the music is aimed at that massively naive / clueless indyrock audience.

    MP3s, plaese!?


  • a greatest hits record? a GREATEST HITS RECORD?!?!?



    first learned about thee midniters/whittier blvd. a long time back due to "the stones" connection...forgive me. heard giants for the first time (complete with live version of walk on by) that floored me and got me itching for that record.

    too expensive. too rinked. too 80s vinyl reissue. the horror.

    finally i happened upon the above-scanned record..a non-rhino comp from 1983 that included "walk on by"--it was cheap enough, so why not?

    this record is great, including some notable covers--never gonna give you up has an excessively dour harmonizing tone that fits the mood of the song perfectly. a killer lo-fi recording of tighten up. and a studio version of walk on by--which to my ears beats the live version hands-down...and made me realize that the giants version actually begins with the last four notes of--yep, tighten up.

    one of my favorite records, and one i can listen to start to finish.
