Stereo Total formed more than 20 years ago. They sing in French and German. They mix Casiotone pop, disco and garage rock as if it were completely natural to do so.
They played “Pixelize Me” from the new album Cactus versus Brezel, but also oldies like “Miau Miau” from the 1995 self-titled LP. The set closed with an excellent spin on Sid Vicious’s “My Way” sung in French. The encores ended with “Everyone in the Discotheque (I Hate)” and everyone on stage singing in the rain.
Giggle Party also has a thing for cats. They transplanted here from Dallas a year ago, and among the rubble there are shards of Times New Viking, signs of Peelander-Z and huge blow-up whales. Good shit.
“We Make Our Own Luck”
Sporting some seriously disturbing video of David Hasselhoff, Super Adventure Club, scared me right out the door with a 2 piece electronic disco thing that may or may not owe something to Tenacious D.
