Bio

Made up of vocalist Sarah Cracknell, Pete Wiggs and Bob Stanley, Saint Etienne formed in 1990. Their debut album ‘Foxbase Alpha,’ released in 1991, established them as a quintessentially English proposition – part Lyons Corner House, part acid house. Their love of techno, the Beach Boys and classic English pop allowed them to carve out a sound that was uniquely Saint Etienne. They have release albums on Sub Pop, Creation and Warner Bros. They have collaborated with Kylie Minogue – isn’t that enough?
