STEREOLAB - Emperor Tomato Ketchup
What do you get when you mix a spoonful of the Free Design with a teaspoonful of flower-pop, sizzle it in krautrock sauce and serve it rare-the-french-way in a post-progressive plate? Stereolab!
The minds of Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier have been presenting us with some of the most innovative, addictive and especially influential music of the 90s. Emperor Tomato Ketchup is my personal favourite, showcasing their ability to write tunes so memorable and catchy that once you hear them, they stick to the back of your brain like bubblegum! Contributions by Sean O' Hagan are found in this album too.
Brilliant music and with political lyrics (both Gane and Sadier are renowned for their left-wing tendencies)
Enjoy, any time of the day!
