Stereolab? July 13, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Anyone from here get to Stereolab this last month? Met a lot of people there but only saw one CLR-linked person in the distance. I’ve always liked Stereolab, but much more their early recordings as noted here. But, got to say, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the gig overall. There’s something both compelling and charming about the intensity of their approach.

As it happened it was a long booked occasion and only a week or two before the gig it was announced The Adolescents were playing the same night in Dublin. Now I’d have to admit to liking Adolescents a lot more than Stereolab, and I’ve never seen them, but I can’t say I was too put out to discover the clash. There’s something about the Adolescents that makes them so much of their time (I started listening to them in the early 1990s) and I’d worry that seeing them at this stage might alter that perception.

Yet that said I don’t have the same worries say about the Damned or Undertones, both groups from slightly earlier again than The Adolescents. That said I first saw the Damned in 1985 so they’ve been a constant enough presence having seen them at least once a decade subsequently. As to the Undertones while the original band broke up there was That Petrol Emotion so they were a continuing feature for quite some time.

Anyhow, here’s the Adolescents live this year.

Always liked Stereolab.

Plus, they had one of the coolest band names ever.
