Product Description

This 4-disc box set features 3 CDs of EP tracks from 'Jenny Ondioline' to 'Captain Easychord' - compiling tracks from the band's rare Duophonic EPs and singles. A 4th DVD (NTSC/Region 1) disc of the accompanying promotional videos also includes TV appearances for The Word and Later with Jools Holland. All four discs in this set are packaged in a clam shell box, with free stickers. Too Pure. 2005.

When you're a prolific band that also happens to be mighty friendly to your obsessive compulsive collector fan base, you wind up releasing a lot of singles and EPs with material that's otherwise unavailable on your albums. And here, for the price of a Japanese pressing of the Fluorescences EP on an auction site alone, you get Stereolab's eight Elektra EPs, from 1993's Jenny Ondioline to 2001's Captain Easychord. The "groop"'s collaborative EPs ( Crumb Duck, Uilab) are not included, but there is a DVD with rarely-seen videos and television performances. This box set serves far more than a plug-the-gaps exercise for trainspotters; as with the singles collections Switched-On volumes one, two and three (did we not mention this band is prolific?), it's an intriguing retrospective of the band in their mature years. And unlike those comps, this set often highlights the band's more lengthy, experimental songs. "Les Yper Yper Sound," for instance, John McEntire's distorted, delightfully repetitious reworking of "Yper Sound" from Emperor Tomato Ketchup, is spine-tinglingly awesome. --Mike McGonigal
