Stereolab – Transporte Sans Bouche

The best thing about writing about the old stuff is that I can rely on memory instead of badly constructed myspace pages and misdiagnosed wiki’s. For the most of my late teens and twenties I was a heavy music magazine reader you see. Back then we had to rely on the odd Fanning discovery for our audio kicks. There was probably just as much music around then as there is now but it was presented through a sieve that left most of the interesting stuff in playlist makers dustbins. For a time in the mid nineties I thought I knew everything about alternative music, the truth of course was that I knew everything that was being fed to us through a straw. Thank god for the internet is what I say, at long last we can use our own rationale to decipher what is good and what will be on the nearest FM. That said given the throbbing intensity of modern supply I’m sure I’d never have fallen so deeply for bands like Stereolab and their obscure album tracks like ‘Transporte Sans Bouche’ which to this day still gives me butterflies. If I sound confused, it’s not intentional, I’m just getting old. KD

    Amazing song! I somehow missed this one. I think I kind of stopped following them after Emperor Tomato Ketchup for some reason.

    Funnily enough it came before ETK, it was stuck towards the end of Mars Audiac Quintet!
