About this item

The fourth in the Switched On series that compiles non-album tracks and sought after deep cuts by the groop. Following on from the first volume released in 1992, 1995's Refried Ectoplasm, and 1998's Aluminum Tunes, the long-awaited fourth installment spans 1999 - 2008 in the Stereolab story and collates 3 LPs worth of material, all remastered from the original tapes and overseen by the band. It features all the tracks from out-of-print and sought after mini-album The First Of The Microbe Hunters, one-off and impossible to find tour 7"s, compilation tracks, art installation work and a couple of unreleased outtakes from the Mars Audiac Quintet and Dots and Loops recording sessions


Barry says: There are few bands more revered in electronic circles than Stereolab and this collection of brilliantly eccentric but unmistakeably deep 'rarities' compilations (I hate that term, but you know the sort), the FOURTH collection in fact being every bit as amazing as the first makes me wonder how many more there are, and when I can buy them.
