Just went to the Atlanta show last night. Really good show. I still rank the ETK and Sound Dust tours the highest. I thought this tour was a lot like the Cobra tour sonicaly and setlist-wise. The groop sounded really good considering such a long break. Looking back at the setlist they did a good job of including songs from all their eras. A real treat for me was Brakhage, Anamorphose, and Crest. I saw Joe behind the venue after the show and chatted a bit. I asked him if they were going to record any new material. He laughed and shrugged if off that he didn't know. I'm just reading into things but either he wasn't sure or they may have something planned. It didn't seem like a definite no. They also both seem really fond of Brandon Cox so maybe there will be some type of collaboration. I put up a few vides on my Youtube page. I had a horrible view of the stage so sorry but the sound quality is good -

I didn't want to start a thread so I'm glad you did! But, the Dallas show was excellent as well. I've seen them several times before and I can honestly say I don't think they've ever sounded as good. One minor bicker, I wish they'd do something else about the backing vocals, just hire another female with a sweet voice for goodness sake! Whatever, I know that will get blown out of proportion. Afterward, Tim was greeting fans and I thanked him for coming and shook his hand. I'd worn a homemade Komeda t-shirt that I was hoping someone might notice. Wouldn't you know, the only motherfucker who said anything was Tim Gane...

The raffle prizes from the ATL show we’re pretty cool. Think I would have loved to win the signed suitcase (no booby prize in my view).

Multi-layered vocals are arguably, so important to the Stereolab sound, that I'd like to see a full-blown trio of female backing vocalists, but they probably aren't in the budget for that many band members, that's why the bass and keyboard player are pulling double-duty by singing backup.

Working with Brandon would be a dream...Deerhunter is one of my favorites as well.
