Il 4 dicembre scrivevano così: “Stereolab will undertake an extensive reissue campaign covering albums from 1993’s Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements through to 2004’s Margerine Eclipse. All 7 albums will be reissued throughout 2019. Keep ‘em peeled for news of the live return of Stereolab”.
Due mesi dopo gli Stereolab mandano in orbita tour e ristampe (ben 7 in questo 2019). Si inizia il 3 maggio via Warp/Duophonic UHF Disks con le prime due che riguardano ‘Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements’ e ‘Mars Audiac Quintet’. “Each album has been re-mastered from the original 1/2″ tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by Tim Gane. Bonus material will include alternate takes, 4 track demos and unreleased mixes. The initial vinyl editions will be pressed onto triple clear numbered vinyl with a poster / insert containing sleeve notes by Tim. They will also include a lottery style scratch card – all winners will receive a limited edition 12″ EP. The band have also produced a super limited edition of 500 clear vinyl copies and 250 compact disks – each will have a numbered obi band made from 2″ 24 track Stereolab master tape”.
Poi toccherà ad agosto a ‘Emperor Tomato Ketchup’, ‘Dots and Loops’ e ‘Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky night’. Mentre a novembre ‘Sound-Dust’ e ‘Margerine Eclipse’.
