Limited special editions feature obi strips made from original 2″ master tapes.
Seven Stereolab records are set to be reissued on vinyl this year, via Warp and Duophonic UHF Disks.
The reissue campaign will begin on 3rd May, with new editions for 1993’s Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements and 1994’s Mars Audiac Quintet.
Emperor Tomato Ketchup, Dots and Loops and Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky night will follow in August, with Sound-Dust and Margerine Eclipse slated for release in November. They will also include additional material such as alternate takes, 4 track demos and unreleased mixes.
Each album has been re-mastered from the original 1/2″ tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by Stereolab frontman Tim Gane.
The new editions will be pressed on triple clear vinyl and come with a poster and liner notes by Gane. Every album will contain a lottery style scratch card, with winners receiving a limited edition 12″ EP.
A ‘super’ limited edition version of each release, exclusive to the Duophpnic online shop, will also be available, with the additional joy of being wrapped in a numbered obi band made from 2″ 24 track Stereolab master tape.
Last year, Stereolab reissued Volumes 1-3 of their Switched On compilation on vinyl.
Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements and 1994’s Mars Audiac Quintet will be released on 3rd May. Click here to pre-order a copy and listen to an early version mix of Stereolab’s iconic ‘French Disco’ below.
