  • Exclusive interview with Françoise of Stereo Total

    Apr 1 2007, 14:20

    Sun 23 Mar – The Strokes, Stereo Total

    The Strokes at their debut, being excellent already, I paid attention to the support band, Stereo Total, a duet from Berlin starring Françoise Cactus and DJ Brezel!

    Here it is:

    Q1 - How was the tour with the Strokes? What did you think of the Corn Exchange venue in Edinburgh/Scottish Audience?

    So, we enjoyed the tour with the Strokes - sexy rock'n'rollers! In every country the people showed interest in us. But in Scotland - especially in Glasgow - we had problems with the audience because red-headed football fans gave us a beer shower. Well - that's punk! but in Edinburgh they were more friendly.

    Q2 - How did you meet up with Brezel?

    Both of us lived in Berlin in the same street. We met in front of a bakery.

    Q3 - What have been the main musical influences on Stereo Total?

    It's difficult to say there would be a main influence, because there were thousands of influences, but i think a big inspirator was Serge Gainsbourg and also german underground-new wave from the 80s.

    Q4 - What CDs are you listening to right now?

    We always listen to Doopees from Japan and Juliette Greco from France and to Momus from Scotland.

    Q5 - Lyrics or music? What comes first?

    Oh - music and lyrics are all important. When we compose a song we do everything in the same time the lyrics and the music.

    Q6 - You sing in a wide variety of languages, do you think this brings something special to Stereo Total or do you see this as a pop influence?

    No - i mean we want to be an international band and it brings us the possibility to play in all kind of different countries and we like exploring all kind of languages.

    Q7 - What is your favourite city? If this is not where you live, are you planning to move there?

    We love Barcelona, Paris, London, New Orleans, but we want to stay in Berlin for now.

    Q8 - Are you more a bike person or a taxi person?

    I take both of them. If it's not to far away i take my bike and if it's far away i take a cab. But what I hate is taking the u-bahn.

    Q9 - Charles Trenet wrote that he drives towards Valence on the RN7, if you were to drive on the RN7, where would you hop on from?

    Everywhere except Lyons.

    Q10 - Who does inspire you when you write songs?

    My friends, also movies and all kinds of objects that are around me.

    Q11 - Where do you see Stereo Total in one year from now?

    I see us in the recording studio.

    Q12 - Any tour in the UK being planned?
    Not for now, but we hope to come again.

  • A taste of the new album!

    Nov 6 2006, 11:13

    Sébastien Tellier was on 6Music last Friday with Asha and picked some cool tracks for his playlist eg Kavinsky and not Kevinsky. I guess the poor intern had troubles writing down track names, his english is atrocious, anyway, he also played that track. I liked it, I guess he will be playing it live in Paris at the end of the month, I will be there so watch this space!

  • Whatever happened to Rob...

  • Probably one of the most original artist in Paris...

    Mar 26 2006, 8:18

    right now!

    La Ritournelle is a hit, I wonder if he wrote it for the movie called Narco - neat movie by the way - or whether the director of the movie picked it up as it was very well suited...get your hands on the sessions, its out in April, so its sooooooooooon!
