Well, thanks so much! I certainly would have been happy to hear 1 or 2 tracks by Stereolab, but an entire hour! But then I would suggest that the real benefactors are your listeners, who might otherwise never hear this extraordinary band. Having listened to much of their catalog I sure think they went through quite a transformation. They really started out in more or less a Talking Heads vein, just plaintive guitar based songs. But then what 20 year old aggregations don't go through some changes? Their association with Sean O'Hagan certainly altered their sound. Stereolab's late 90's sound was distinctive. My friend Raymond Benson http://raymondbenson.blogspot.com/ suggested that they were 'shoe gazing' music. I would somewhat concur. While I can't really confirm the Canterbury influence outside of the evidence, I must admit they wear the 'lounge' aesthetic on their sleeves. Keyboardist Tim Gane is certainly the electronics maven. I was surprised at the association with Nurse With Wound. Again, Gane and Sadier are ostensibly avid record collectors. I also need to pay my respects to the late Mary Hansen, the Stereolab vocalist guitarist. Rest in peace. She died after being struck by a truck while bicycling! One of the more sad things I ever heard. I daresay that altered Stereolab's future. Laetitia Sadier is carrying on with several projects, as is Tim Gane. Stereolab is 'on hiatus'. I can envision a reunion at some point. Gane actually collaborated with Sean O'Hagan on a movie sountrack score. Thanks again. The Roxy Music track 'Son for Europe' is apropos. You certainly need it lately. I'm pleased to see Lady June still active. Cheers and keep up the good work.

'Parsec' by Stereolab from 'Dots and Loops'
Well, this inspired my train of thought. As nice a horn and vocal arrangement as I ever heard. And right out of Soft Machine, probably subconsciously. Actually I could hardly believe what I was hearing initially.
