"Stunning Debut Album" played on the John Peel Show

Cool clip....25 years ago now, crazy huh?



"A seriously terrible pressing, for which I apologize....it's actually pressed up on a glow in the dark vinyl. Why do they do that, I simply can't imagine I mean you don't look at records. Well I suppose you do, I do actually. Stereolab and eh, that's called "Doubt". You're listening to...."

The interference lends this an eerie quality like a ghost of the past, I wonder what the listener thought on picking up this transmission and possibly hearing the groop for the first time....

It didn't.
The clear version was a repress of the multi-coloured first pressing.
Peel was a supporter of the band from the first 10" and pretty much asked us in for a session as soon as he'd received DS45-01.

Thanks for the info Martin. I'm not surprised, clearly he was a man of impeccable taste :)

That must be from December 1991, according to Peel Wikia site. "Charger", the "other" Side One (love the humorous tracklisting at the back of the cover) was aired in November '91.

Anyway, a good resource for all things Stereolab and John Peel:

Mine was clear. It had a bloody crack in it though. Ahhh, those early Duophonic pressings...

Hi, by the way.
