Re: The Stereolab songs with the best intro

I agree on "Gus the Mynah Bird" and I'd just like to state that I'd love to snatch up a vinyl of Sound-Dust, there the intro to "Gus" is even longer, more full-blown, three minutes of Steve Reich doing "SMiLE" kind of bliss.

Other favorite intros:
The Black Arts (shimmering beauty)
Come and Play In the Milky Night (dig those guitars, plus a very spacey sound at the start)
Contronatura (swelling organ a la Third era Soft Machine)
Old Lungs (dig that nasty fuzz bass)
Slow Fast Hazel (very effective, begins with Laetitia taking a breath and then lead vocals immediately with full band sound)
You Used to Call Me Sadness (some really cool avant-garde noises, then a drumbeat on the Lissy's version)
1000 Miles an Hour (a very tranquil first half a la Philip Glass channeled via Spacemen 3)
