"...the band — which now includes the drummer Andy Ramsay, the keyboard player Joe Watson and the bassist Xavier Muñoz Guimera..." No Simon, then?
I'm wondering that as well. Is he out for the entire tour, or will he join at some point?
Simon said he's not sure but it doesn't look likely. :'( He said he's doing well, so he didn't say anything about why.
Already linked on other threads, but just for completeness, here's the piece on The Ringer, which includes some Tim quotes: https://www.theringer.com/music/2019/7/25/20727074/stereolab-reunion-tour-pitchfork
I know Sue's started a new thread about this interview; this is just to ensure everything's archived in one place. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/sep/04/stereolab-songbook-tim-gane-laetitia-sadier
Long WFMU radio interview with Tim and I believe some of the records on the playlist are selected by him as well (things he's planning to play at the SF DJ set on 17 October). Archived here - stream or mp3: http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/88723
Beginning of the Ilitch track sounds a lot like the opening chords of Lo Boob
Love the Liliental track too - the slide guitar is maybe the inspiration for the one on Captain Easychord?
