Biography

"Hysterical Glamour"
By now introducing Stereo Total maybe unnecessary. The German/French Duo, comprising of Françoise Cactus and Brezel Göring, have been playing underground electropop songs since the mid‐90s – and that not just in a French accent, but also in several languages. Most recently they have released a Stereo ... Read more in Amazon's Stereo Total Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

There is a micro-fine line that separates cult cool and knowingly naff comedy, a fact that Berlin's Stereo Total seem happily oblivious of. Their debut UK release, Total Pop--a bizarre collection of cutesy synth pop and sugar-coated punk lifted from their previous four albums--could easily fall into either category. The confusion stems from their own straight-faced delivery of lines like "You feel like Steve McQueen when you're driving in your car/and you think you're a new James Bond when you're smoking your cigar" (from "Moviestar") over a Hawaiian guitar and painful samba, or the sincerity of the superbly tacky lounge/punk "Holiday In". Come their appalling/works-of-pure-genius covers of Salt'n'Pepa's "Push It" and KC And The Sunshine Band's "Get Down", the urge to climb the walls and sing along seem equally inviting, leading to the belief that this is both the worst holiday camp band and the coolest thing ever committed to disc. Either way, what they lack in lyrical poetry and musical prowess they make up for with bulging bags of charisma, style and entertainment value... and that goes a long, long way. --Dan Gennoe

5.0 out of 5 stars Kitsch & Chic 23 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The very first thing you will probably notice is that incredible french accent. You have never heard anybody singing like that. Not since Maurice Chevalier. At least. Then you'll discover all those bizarre funny electronic tricks, punky guitars and stew-pan drums. The whole stuff sounds as it was recorded in the kitchen. It was, actually, but a magical kitchen, with Francoise Cactus and Brezel Goring doing the cooking, somewhere in Berlin.
And what's in the menu ? A pot pourri of 24 electropop songs, selected from their 4 previous albums (Oh Ah, Monokini, Juke-Box Alarm and My Melody), sometimes sung in french, sometimes in german, sometimes in english (they also have some italian and japanese specialities).
An extraordinaire melting pop, mixing all kind of references, from 60's Yeye girls (Sylvie Vartan, Brigitte Bardot), to 70's disco trash (KC and the Sunshine Band), via 80's forgotten bands (the Plastics). Tasty, spicy, hot & sweety. A table !

2.0 out of 5 stars Moi, je joue is not on this album 20 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
Like another reviewer on here, I bought this CD for the song "Moi, je joue" having heard it on an advert. However the track is not on the album even though it says it is on the cover.

In fact you can get this track on Stereo-Total's album 'Oh Ah' or the better original sung by Brigitte Bardot on "Best of Bardot" -

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic crap? 13 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
I wont tell you what it sounds like or try to mimic the pretentious stylings of the “wana-be journos”. I will however give a short piece of advice based on personal tastes!
I first heard a track on a car add, after a bit of sniffing around , I fond out who performed it. It was by “stereo total”. I even found out the track name. However, in a fit of peek I bought all I could get hold of, except an early crap one, judging by the samples I heard, it defies listening to!
I eagerly awaited the first of several disks to arrive and took it to work for a twelve-hour shift…and again the next night.
I woke up humming half a song and didn’t understand the lyrics… realizing that out of the preceding 48 hours, 24 of those hours, were spent listening to one cd, was quite astounding. Even though I was able to access around fifty albums of my choice, this was it. The eject button was feeling left out in a big way, meanwhile the battery door was doing a sterling trade.
Armed with the new album, I proudly displayed and auditioned it to my wife, she likes a diverse and strange mix from: My old hard-core punk, to pink, via the goodies and ACDC. I was surely on to a winner.
After a few quick bursts of hastily skipped trax, “this makes Kenny Everett’s LP of ‘the worst records of all time’ seam like an all time classic, it’s shite!” was her somewhat frank reprise.
My advise is to try before you buy…I’m going to make copies of the disk and bury them in selected parts of the garden, in case the original gets stolen, accidentally sat upon or the disk gets left in the sun, these events are a possibility that my wife has assured me could happen, soon!
Jim Griffiths.

3.0 out of 5 stars Be careful what you expect. 11 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album expecting to have a t'riffic version of "mai je jous" from the well-known car advert. Oh how wrong, for some reason the promissed song isn't on the album (replaced maybe due the success of the advert?) even though the CD cover still claims that it is...
As for the rest. Easy listening, not demanding, won't scare the kids, nor get the pulse racing either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Total Fun! 21 Jun 2000
By James W. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD on the strength of a glowing review in the Guardian, ordered online since none of the local record shops seemed to stock it.
It may be true that Stereo Total are not the smoothest musicians in the world, but their love of American pop music shines through in the countrified twang of tracks like 'Heaven's in the back seat [of my autmobile]' and the wacky cover of Salt'n'Pepa's 'Push It', while the occasional roughness in their playing only emphasises their refreshing lack of commercialism.
There is the odd moment when you wonder quite why they take a particular approach - the punk rock attack of 'Ringo I Love You' springs to mind - but the fun pop sensibility wins through to remind you just how enjoyable pop music can be. The zany edge to their music makes 'Total Pop' a highly entertaining album, a world away from the smooth blandness of modern UK groups such as S Club 7 or [God forbid!] The Corrs.
If you're willing to experiment a little, highly recommended. Simply Red fans, save your money..
5.0 out of 5 stars so much fun! 9 Oct 2004
By rufio akire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Stereo Total is a band with much depth. they have kitchy songs that are bubbly techno mixed with some punk edges. They sing in so many languages and the beat is so good it doesnt matter if you understand what they are saying. I found out about stereo total because they kept having their music featured in snowboarding videos and then got hooked. they are a bunch of fun and you cant help but have this goofy smile when you listen to their great tunes!
5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra-peppy pop 2 Jan 2002
By C. Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This cd gets five stars because every time I listen, I have a big wankin smile on my face, my feet twitch and my fingers snap! What a swinging popster peppy recording. Check out track 22 for a good preview - Partir du Mourir. It's a gas, like every other track. Just good goofy Eurofun, with most excellent rhythms!
