    Wenn du des Englischen mächtig bist, dann habe ich folgenden Artikel für dich:

    Like most bands formed by former music journalists, Saint Etienne was a highly conceptual group. The trio's concept was to fuse the British pop sounds of '60s London with the dance club rhythms and productions that defined the post-acid house England of the early '90s. Led by songwriters Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, and fronted by vocalist Sarah Cracknell, the group managed to carry out their concept, and, in the process, they helped make indie dance a viable genre within the U.K. Throughout the early '90s, Saint Etienne racked up a string of indie hit singles that were driven by deep club beats -- encompassing anything from house and techno to hip-hop and disco -- and layered with light melodies, detailed productions, clever lyrics, and Cracknell's breathy vocals. They revived the sounds of swinging London, as well as the concept of the three-minute pop single being a catchy, ephemeral piece of ear candy, in post-acid house Britain, thereby setting the stage for Brit-pop. Though most Brit-pop bands rejected the dance inclinations of Saint Etienne, they nevertheless adopted the trio's aesthetic, which celebrated the sound and style of classic '60s pop.

    The origins of Saint Etienne date back to the early '80s, when childhood friends Bob Stanley (b. December 25, 1964) and Pete Wiggs (b. May 15, 1966) began making party tapes together in their hometown of Croydon, Surrey, England. After completing school, the pair began worked various jobs -- most notably, Stanley was a music journalist -- before deciding to concentrate on a musical career in 1988. Adopting the name Saint Etienne from the French football team of the same name, the duo moved to Camden, where they began recording. By the beginning of 1990, the group had signed a record contract with the indie label Heavenly. In the spring of 1990, Saint Etienne released their first single, a house-tinged cover of Neil Young's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," which featured lead vocals from Moira Lambert of the indie pop band Faith Over Reason.

    "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" became an underground hit, receiving a fair amount of airplay within nightclubs across England. Later in the year, Saint Etienne released their second single, a cover of the indie pop group Field Mice's "Kiss and Make Up," which was sung by Donna Savage of the New Zealand band Dead Famous People. Like its predecessor, "Kiss and Make Up" was an underground hit, helping set the stage for "Nothing Can Stop Us." Released in the spring of 1991, "Nothing Can Stop Us" was the first Saint Etienne single sung by Sarah Cracknell (b. April 12, 1967), whose girlish vocals became a signature of the group's sound. Cracknell was the main vocalist on the band's debut Fox Base Alpha, which was released in the fall of 1991. Following the release of Fox Base Alpha, Cracknell officially became a member of Saint Etienne; she had previously sung in Prime Time.

    "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" was re-released in conjunction with Fox Base Alpha and cracked the lower end of the British pop charts. Saint Etienne was beginning to gain momentum, as the British press generally gave them positive reviews and their records were gaining a strong fan base not only in England, but throughout Europe. During 1992, the group released a series of singles -- "Join Our Club," "People Get Real," and "Avenue" -- which maintained their popularity. In addition to writing and recording music for Saint Etienne, Stanley and Wiggs became active producers, songwriters, remixers, and label heads as well. In 1989, Stanley had founded Caff Records, which issued limited-edition 7" singles of bands as diverse as Pulp and the Manic Street Preachers, as well as a number of other lesser-known bands like World of Twist. In 1992, Stanley and Wiggs founded Ice Rink, which intended to put out records by pop groups, not rock groups. The label released singles from several artists -- including Oval, Sensurround, Elizabeth City Slate, and Golden, which featured Stanley's girlfriend, Celina -- none of which gained much attention.

    Preceded by the single "You're in a Bad Way," Saint Etienne's second album So Tough appeared in the spring of 1993 to generally positive reviews and increased sales. Over the course of 1993, the group released three more singles -- "Who Do You Think You Are," "Hobart Paving," and "I Was Born on Christmas Day" -- which all charted well. In 1994, the trio began to lose momentum, as their third album Tiger Bay was greeted with decidedly mixed reviews, even as singles like "Like a Motorway" continued to chart well. After completing a new track, "He's on the Phone," for their 1995 singles compilation, Too Young to Die, as well as the French-only single "Reserection," Saint Etienne took an extended break during 1996. Sarah Cracknell pursued a solo project, releasing a single titled "Anymore" in the fall of the year. Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs began a record label for EMI Records, which had the intention of releasing music from young, developing bands. In the fall of 1996, Saint Etienne released a remix album, Casino Classics; a new studio effort, Good Humour, followed two years later, and the trio returned in 1999 with an EP, Places to Visit. The full-length Sound of Water appeared in mid-2000, featuring guest appearances by Sean O'Hagan (of the High Llamas) and To Rococo Rot. After a successful U.S. tour in support of Sound of Water the group issued Interlude, a collection of new tracks, instrumentals, and B-sides, in early 2001. A year later, the trio followed up with Finisterre for Mantra.

    Was "He's On The Phone" anbelangt, kann ich Dir absolut beipflichten. Als der Song rauskam, war ich regelrecht süchtig nach dem Stück. Finde die Band auch sonst gut.

    Saint Etienne ist ein Trio aus England, dass 1990 die erste Single veröffentlichte. Das Stück war "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" (eine Coverversion von einem Neil Young Stück). "He's On The Phone", auf dem übrigens Etienne Daho mitwirkte kam 1995 raus Sämtliche Singles die in dieser Zeitspanne veröffentlicht wurden sind auf dem genialen Sampler "Too Young To Die - Singles 1990 - 1995" zu finden. Die CD gibt es auch als limitierte Doppel CD mit einer Remix Bonus CD (ohne "He's On The Phone")

    Ein Jahr später hat die Band die Doppel CD "Casino Classics" veröffentlicht. Da sind verschiedene Maxiversionen und Remixe der Band zu finden u.a. der tolle Primax Remix von "He's On The Phone".

    Eine normale Maxi CD mit 4 verschiedenen Versionen gibt es übrigens auch.

    Total klasse ist auch Hobart Paving. Die meisten werden den song nicht kennen, aber er ist mal von Katja Riemann und ihren Schauspielerkolleginnen aus Bandits aufgespeedet und gecovert worden. Es wurde dann der Titeltrack Catch me draus.

    So sehen Saint Etienne aus ....

    Die Too young to die habe ich mal bei ebay.com aus den USA ersteigert. Absolut tolle Scheibe mit superguten Titeln drauf. Kann ich echt nur wärmstens empfehlen. Auch das von mir so geliebte Hobart Paving findet sich drauf.
