Band Biography[]

Stereolab are primarily a duo of core members Tim Gane & Lætitia Sadier, although they've been joined by many other musicians throughout their career. Perhaps the most famous of these other musicians is the late Mary Hansen who provided a lot of vocals during her tenure with the group, along with other instrumentation. Their sound is a french-pop inspired space-age/retro-futuristic type of music with lots of influences. Their lyrics are often political, but subtly so. Vocals play a subversive role in Stereolab, often sneaking under the radar; in "Jenny Ondoline", there's a line "I don't care if the fascists have to win", and the song "Nothing To Do With Me" from Sound-Dust features lyrics taken from Chris Morris' TV series Jam, featuring lyrics like "Could you please fix my baby/He hasn't moved for three weeks" and "Did you prescribe my daughter/A pound of heroin/I'm sorry/I can't see/I seem to have blinded myself".
