Sound Of Water signed by Julian Opie.... We've decided to do our bit in helping raise money to save one of our favourite places in London - The Social. Artist Julian Opie has helped out to by signing three vinyl copies of the Sound Of Water sleeve he designed for us back in 2000. Bob, Pete and Sarah will also sign all three records on the back cover. Original Opie artworks are highly prized and this is the first and only time Julian has signed copies so they won't be cheap. They will be available from 4pm today (along with three unique Foxbase Alpha items) at the Save The Social crowdfunded page here: We think they're a bargain and the money will be going to a fantastic cause.

Save The Social!! We’re really upset to hear the news that one of our favourite places in London, The Social on Little Portland Street is under threat. The Social holds a a special place in our hearts as we’ve played live there, DJ’d, drunk ourselves stupid, danced, talked and partied many nights away there. We’re keen to see that the Social keeps its doors open for another 20 years and hope you will join us in supporting their Crowdfunder: Long live The Social!! Love, Bob, Pete and Sarah xxx

Tiger Bay @ The Barbican 22nd May 2019 with the London Contemporary Orchestra "Saint Etienne's Tiger Bay is regarded by many as their finest album. Released in 1994, it was a groundbreaking blend of electronica with traditional folk melodies, which included the singles Pale Movie, Like A Motorway and Hug My Soul. It was arranged and conducted by the late David Whitaker, who had worked with Serge Gainsbourg, Marianne Faithfull and Lee Hazlewood. The group have never performed the album with a full orchestra before, and this 25th anniversary show with the London Contemorary orchestra will be their only performance this year." Tickets for this special evening go onsale to Barbican members from 10am on Thursday 31st January and non members the following morning 1st February here: Please be quick as this is expected to sell out fast.

CHRISTMAS NEWS!! Fireworks Night and Halloween are out of the way, and it's not quite time to get the Charlie Brown Christmas Album out yet, but we plan ahead - it is time to start thinking about presents and parties. We've got two Christmas Parties planned, one in Saltaire, Yorkshire (Dec 6th), and the other in Brighton, Sussex (Dec 14th), in two of our favourite, wonderfully atmospheric social clubs. We'll be playing records that were in Christmas Top 40s, but not necessarily Christmas records... cunning, eh? Also we'll do our now-traditional raffle, with St Et rarities and egg nog up for everyone will get a special "prize" just for coming. Both nights start at 7 and finish at 11.30. Tickets are strictly limited to 130 for each party and go on sale this Friday at noon (UK time) here: Saltaire,Yorkshire Thursday December 6th Tickets here: Brighton, Sussex Friday December 14th Tickets here: We also have a couple of Fan Club vinyl editions coming out for Christmas too. First up is our 'Asleep At The Wheels Of Steel' collection, originally a fan club CD that came out in 2002. This includes the first soundtrack music we ever recorded, for an obscure Scottish film appropriately called Lost. Secondly there's Richard X's wonderful re-imagining of our debut album, 'Foxbase Beta'. Both have been beautifully mastered by Guy Davie, with Paul Kelly artwork. If you saw our previous fan club vinyl editions, you'll know how well turned out they are. Feel the quality! Both of these are limited editions of 1000 copies and come with inner sleeves and download cards. They will be available to pre order from next Wednesday 21st November: here - ...and will ship from December 3rd in time for Christmas delivery. Finally, if you fancy a copy of Bob's new book Sleevenotes, we will be offering copies of these via our webshop from 21st November as the fan club vinyl albums go onsale. It's all about influences and inspirations behind Saint Etienne songs - including yarns about recording Good Humor in Malmo, selling eggs and cheese with Pete in Surrey Street market, and (of course) the power of pop music. It also includes some snazzy photos. Yours for a mere £7.99 and the first 200 copies sold via the shop will be signed by Bob. It's all happening! love Sarah, Bob and Pete xxx

State Of The Union A brand new compilation from Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs via Ace Records. Available to pore-order now. By mid-1968 there was a growing consensus that something had gone horribly wrong with the American dream. The nation’s youth had loudly made their feelings clear, but now the older, pre-Beatles generations began to look at the country – with urban riots, Vietnam, and the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy – and wonder what the hell was happening. This album includes rare classics (The Beach Boys’ ‘Fourth Of July’), lost masterpieces (Roy Orbison’s seven-minute ‘Southbound Jericho Parkway’), and forgotten gems by some of the biggest names in the business (Elvis Presley’s ‘Clean Up Your Own Back Yard’). Reactions to America’s existential crisis ranged in subject matter from divorce (Frank Sinatra’s ‘The Train’) and the break-up of the nuclear family (The Four Seasons’ ‘Saturday’s Father’), to eulogies for fallen heroes (Dion’s ‘Abraham Martin and John’), sympathy for Vietnam vets (Johnny Tillotson’s ‘Welfare Hero’), the church’s institutional racism (Eartha Kitt’s intense ‘Paint Me Black Angels’), and even questioning the ethics of the space programme (Bing Crosby’s terrific ‘What Do We Do With The World’). Compiled by Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, State Of The Union follows on from their highly acclaimed English Weather and Paris In The Spring compilations. With clear parallels between today's fractured country and the USA fifty years ago, this is a fascinating condensation of what Americans were thinking when they turned on the TV, or the radio, or simply walked down Main Street in 1968. Available on CD and 180g blue vinyl double LP here:

US Tour CDs Ahead of our North American and Canadian dates that start this week, some important news…... Last Wednesday we were hit with some really bad news that the US/Canada tour CDs aren't going to be ready in time for the Good Humor anniversary shows. Despite getting the artwork and music delivered two weeks ahead of the specified schedule the manufacturing plant have let us down with no real explanation other than "we are experiencing an unprecedented volume of orders and your products are held in a queue". We are as upset as you are about this news. To remedy a bad situation we've come up with something that we hope will work for all those who were expecting to pick these up at the shows. It's a pre-order certificate that will guarantee the CD's to all those who were expecting to purchase them on the night. We were due to offer the Surrey EP at $12 US and the Double CD Mondo Casino at $20 US. With the pre order certificate you'll be able to buy the pair shipped to your door for $30. Simply fill in the certificate, pay our merchandise seller, get your certificate stamped (top and bottom), we'll hand you the top portion which is your proof of purchase and we'll retain the bottom part with your details for processing the second stock has arrived. This means that we can keep our promise of giving those who attend the shows first dibs on the tour exclusives. We're sorry you'll have to wait but we'll ensure we get those in the mail ASAP before anyone else. Sorry that we can't offer either title individually but three forms would have made things too complicated. Any stock not accounted for after the Good Humor shows in America, Canada and London, will be put up for grabs via our web shop - but international shipping costs will be added at that time. We're really sorry for the inconvenience caused by this but hopefully the certificates (printed on heavy card) will be a good keepsake and a small something to make up for the wait. If you have pals who can't make the shows perhaps arrange filling in a certificate for direct delivery to them wherever they are. The CDs will be worth the wait plus we'll be carrying a range of specially printed Good Humor tee shirts on the tour. See you later this week or next! Lots of love, Bob, Pete and Sarah xx
