Saint Etienne celebrate 20 years of ‘Good Humor’
with U.S. and Canadian dates.
September 5th – 16th 2018
Bob, Pete and Sarah chat about the tour……
Sarah Cracknell “I’m so looking forwarded to touring Good Humor this Autumn with our fabulous live band! Drummer Mike, The amazing Bennett Brothers, Gerard Johnson and of course Debsey will really bring the album to life and add a certain je ne sais quoi!”
Pete Wiggs “We had such a great experience recording ‘Good Humor’ at Tambourine Studios, and immersing ourselves in Swedish culture (particularly the food/bars/records/pool/bizarre drinking games aspects of it). It’s an album that imho translates nicely to the live ‘arena’ so it will be very exciting and fun to tour it with our current line up of ‘crack’ musicians”.
Bob Stanley “My memories of making Good Humor are all good, and that’s not just looking back twenty years through rose-coloured glasses. Living in a flat in Malmo together for 6 weeks made it feel like we were the Monkees, and I think that spirit comes across on the album. It contained some of my favourite St Et songs, that wise owl Tore Johansson’s production was exceptional, and I was thrilled when it went down so well in the States”
The band will perform ‘Good Humor’ in it’s entirety followed by a set of hits, misses and fan favourites. There will be a new song or two plus some super exclusive items of (music related) merchandise available.
