Description

Made up of vocalist Sarah Cracknell, Pete Wiggs and Bob Stanley, Saint Etienne (named after the green shirted French football side who enjoyed a run of European success in the 1970's) originally formed in 1990. Their debut album Foxbase Alpha (1991) established them as a quintessentially English proposition – part Lyons Corner House, part acid house – and their love of techno, the Beach Boys and classic English pop marked them out as something charmingly unique. 2002's Finisterre combines the influence of Saint Etienne's forays into more acoustic music (Good Humor) and trip hop (Sound of Water), but also returns to the patchwork sequencing of their classic albums. The band manages to pilfer from electro, hip hop, and even a teasing of vocoder on "New Thing," a brashness that could sink most pop groups, but Saint Etienne's effortlessness still manages to shine through.
