Stereo Lab - Dots and Loops

I adore this album. I was curious if there were any cool facts about this album or if there were any interviews from the band discussing the making of this masterpiece.

Tim talks a bit about the recording process in this interview, pretty interesting read:

That's the most informative Lab interview I've read.

None of the D&L era stuff appears on the ABC Music release.

Listened to this in whole last night, but why is it uploaded as bbc instead of abc 🤔

Re: Stereo Lab - Dots and Loops

BBC = British Broadcasting Corporation, it's the radio station these sessions were recorded for. Oftentimes for the John Peel show, but some other programs too (full details can be found in the liner notes for ABC music).

I guess the title "ABC music" is a play on words (or letters) from BBC.

I've always wondered why that D&L era Peel session wasn't included, it's probably my favourite from all the stuff they recorded at the beeb. Maybe licensing issues or something?

I've always assumed that they needed to cut something to keep have it fit on 2cds

I've been hoping for an expanded vinyl issue of ABC Music where all the sessions are included, but I doubt that it will ever happen

Re: Stereo Lab - Dots and Loops

The CD was released on Strange Fruit, who used to do all the Peel Session albums. Little bit disappointing that it was a CD only release, perhaps they felt there wasn't enough demand for vinyl...?

The space limitation across two CDs would make sense, doesn't seem like there would be any licensing conflicts since they were all BBC recordings, plus the groop were on the same record labels for the tracks which came before and after. A vinyl release would have been nice, although maybe a bit pricey....they could have fitted the entire sessions over 8 sides, an even bigger package than Aluminum Tunes!

I have a few other old Peel sessions LPs lurking in the collection....Teenage Fanclub, Unseen Terror and Carcass on vinyl, as well as the "Hardcore Holocaust" compilation CD featuring Napalm Death, Bolt Thrower, Doctor and the Crippens, Extreme Noise Terror, etc. Plus BOC & Plaid CDs (released on Warp). Still have quite a few old C90s with stuff taped live off the radio too, stashed away in a box somewhere. Peel always had such diverse taste, listening to his show was a treat as you never knew what was coming next. Introduced me to a lot of great music :)

Fun fact: The Fall recorded more sessions for John Peel than any other band....24 in total, which were released as a six (!) CD box set.

There was meant to be a 4LP release of this release but for some reason it never materialised. Anybody know why?

I think maybe Dave Gedge recorded more but between his 2 bands.
