Stereolab – The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music – Limited Edition, Clear Vinyl, LP, Too Pure, 2018
Limited Clear Vinyl. Space Age Batchelor Pad Music (also known as The Groop Played “Space Age Batchelor Pad Music”) is an EP (or “mini-LP”) by the alternative music band Stereolab, originally released in March 1993. The release became an underground sensation, and led to the band snagging its first major-label record deal.
The title is spelled Space Age Batchelor Pad Music on the front cover, though not on the back cover or spine; The sleeve and label designs use artwork and text from Vanguard Records’ “Stereolab” hi-fi test record after which the group was named, including the “flagbearer on horseback” logo of Vanguard Records itself.
