What could have been an album of the Berlin-based duo’s most prized songs revisited in Spanish (this isn’t the first time they have shown their passion for singing in various languages, like French, German, English, Italian, Turkish or Japanese), has ended up also including a small yet incredible collection of versions, the majority of which are exquisitely selected from the Spanish pop songbook of the last decades. And after more than 15 years giving us addictive pieces of the best Electro-pop (with touches of Punk, Disco, New wave and Garage), Françoise Cactus and Brezel Göring couldn’t approach this furtive and agile look back differently: unprejudiced, with a mischievous attitude and above all enormously fun and enjoyable. This is how we should take the revision of songs like “No Controles” from OLE OLE, “Voy a Ser Mamá” by ALMODOVAR and McNAMARA (electro-punk band of film director Pedro Almodovar at the beginning of the 80’s), and “C’est Fini” by LA CASA AZUL. It is surprising to be able to listen to these songs oozing through the STEREO TOTAL filter and sung in Spanish with that familiar French accent. And what’s more, we have the occasion to enjoy songs from all of the stages of the group again, including two songs from THE LOLITAS (the group that Françoise made her name with in the middle of the 80s, and who released four albums in France and Germany). “Wir tanzen im 4-Eck” is now “Bailamos en Cuadrado”, “Everybody in The Discotheque (I Hate)” is rebaptized as “Todo El Mundo en La Discoteca”, “Plus Minus Null” is “Más Menos Cero” and their incredible “L’amour à 3” is “Amo Amor a Tres”. What this means is, we are witnessing a reinvention, an ephemeral rebirth; a different language, songs in different forms (many of them mutate most curiously)… All of this is effected with that rebellious and non-conformist attitude, accentuated by a surprising touch of rock’n roll and with the guarantee of one of the best contemporary hit-makers. As if looking back were just an illusion, a way of thinking in order to live the present more intensely. An abundant banquet, an unrepeatable menu, with sophisticated French aromas, the strength of German raw materials, and that sunny seasoning of the Mediterranean diet, all loaded with spice, Tabasco and cayenne. A musical orgy, barbaric, ruffian, in which sex plays an important role again, where KRAFTWERK practice a libidinous game with the Welsh masses, and the RAMONES declare a pillow fight with Plastic Bertrand, while URSULA 1000 plays songs in a stellar bacchanal. And since it couldn’t be any other way, STEREO TOTAL return to compel and surprise us, making their own path, ignoring all the known and unknown rules, destroying the concept of the compilation, adapting it to what they want, to what appeals to them, giving us the gift of so much hedonism and lust for life.

Track Name: C'est Fini
Ya lo ves
Después de todas tus promesas el amor
¿A dónde fue?
¿Dónde lo perdiste?
¿Quién se quedó con él?

Si no vas a volver ya
No me intentes abrazar
Si ya no vas a quererme nunca más

Déjalo, vete ya
Pues no quiero verte más
Sin tu amor, ya me da igual
Algún día entenderás

Que lo di todo por ti
Toda mi ilusión (todo mi querer)
Mis secretos se van con tu tren

Te vas con lo mejor de mi
A por otro amor (que te hará feliz)
Pues el nuestro acaba, c'est fini

Y qué más da
Si al principio me querías o no era más
Que la novedad
De salir con alguien fuera de lo normal

Si no quieres nada más
Si tienes otro en mi lugar
Si esperas algo
Si me quieres ver llorar
Track Name: Un Rayo De Sol
Otra vez en el bar
Todo el día sirviendo vasos y café
Él sabe donde estoy

Vino ayer, se sentó
Le gustó bailar con ella en el bar
Le he visto sonreir
Se sentaron en la mesa para descansar

Otra vez en el bar
Todo el día sirviendo vasos y café
Le he visto sonreir
Se sentaron en la mesa para descansar

Yo lo siento más que mucho
Le quiero de verdad
