A Hi Fidelity Vinyl Experience

Our next event on November 23rd will feature Emperor Tomato Ketchup is the fourth studio album by English-French rock band Stereolab.

First released on March 1996 in the United Kingdom by Duophonic Records and  in the United States by Elektra Records its the master work of collaborative duo  Tim Gane and Lætitia Sadier.

The album takes its name from the 1971 experimental film Tomato Kecchappu Kōtei (Emperor Tomato Ketchup) by Japanese author and director Shūji Terayama, whilst the artwork is inspired by the sleeve of a 1964 recording of composer Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra.

Two singles were released from Emperor Tomato Ketchup: “Cybele’s Reverie” and “Metronomic Underground.” A video was released for “The Noise of Carpet.”

Its a hypnotic masterpiece album is perfect for an autumn evening, so we hope to see lots of you there! Don’t forget, we’ll be raffling the album at the end of the night, your ticket is included in the entry fee! The album is supplied as usual by our friends at Badlands.
