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) formed in 1990. Their debut 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. This vinyl reissue of their fourth album, Good Humor, serves as the first time the LP will be available physically in the US since it was originally released in 1998. A major turning point for the band, Good Humor found the group recording in Malmö, Sweden and replacing their samplers and synths with guitars and horns. Produced by Tore Johansson (The Cardigans), Saint Etienne's acoustic turn only magnified the slickness and pop-instincts of the group.
