Like pairing Silence of the Lambs with Wayne's World. but it takes all sorts.

I Stereolab and Aspidistra (TBC). Apollo. Renfrew Court. 332 6231 . 9pm. Still to be confirmed. but a must ifit goesahead. Stereolab, featuring ex-members of McCarthy and The Chills plus current members of Moose and Th' Faith Healers. fashion lazy. dreamy pop mostly round the one chord. yet despite sticking to such a simple structure have managed to come up with some of the most distinctive sounding records of the past year.
