Hooverphonic a new stereophonic sound spectacular 1996 full album

A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular is the first album by the Belgian band Hooverphonic when the band was only known as Hoover. It was the only album with singer Liesje Sadonius. The song "2 Wicky" was featured in the movies Stealing Beauty by Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Permanent Midnight. It is based on a loop from Isaac Hayes' cover of the Burt Bacharach and Hal David penned "Walk On By, and contains sample from Le Voile d'Orphée performed by Pierre Henry." The singles released from this album are "2 Wicky", "Wardrope", "Barabas" and "Inhaler".


The album's title, A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular, is also the catchphrase of the iconic Japanese Shibuya-kei band Pizzicato Five.

In November 2011, the band announced the re-release of the album in a deluxe format, including the album on vinyl, a collection of remixes and rarities from the era, artwork, and a booklet of essay by band members about the album.
