• fugu Pardon My French (Singles 1996-1998) (numbered white vinyl 10" LP, £17.25)

    label: elefant

    Elefant's 25th anniversary collection - # 18 of 25. Limited edition of 300, plus download. One of the most sought-after singles from Elefant Records was one that Mehdi Zannad released in 1998. Bob Stanley (Saint Etienne) named it Single of the Year. Because of this, and because of the recent appearance of his marvellous album as The Last Detail with Erin Moran of A Girl Called Eddy, we wanted one of the last releases that we included in our collection of 25th anniversary reissues to be this single, which we are releasing with all kinds of incredible extras. And, the Single has become a Mini-LP - with 12 songs including, in addition to the ones that were originally on the famous Single, those from the Split Single with Stereolab as well as the songs from the EP he released on Semantic in 1996. It's a delicious journey through sixties sounds, psychedelic folk, precious arrangements, celestial harmonies, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, the most elegant strings, Left Banke - it's an absolute gem.
