Mod-A-Day: Stereoscope Jerk Explosion

If you're like me memories of Saturday mornings as a kid are still a nice way to waste a little time. Such mornings -- in the late 60s and 70s especially -- were chock full of hour and hours of cartoons, bowls of sickly sweet cereal guaranteed to give you cavities, and other such kid-friendly, sugary goodness. That explains Stereoscope Jerk Explosion in a nutshell. And I mean that in the most complimentary of ways.

Stereoscope Jerk Explosion is a french band enamored of sixties beat music, chock full of psychadelic organs and moog sounds galore. It's guaranteed to fill your minds eye with swirling colors, funny faces, and a great desire to dance your ass off. Comparisons to Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited, Ursula 100, Cucumber, Frank Popp, and Mike Flowers will abound.

The best is to let the group speak for itself, so check out this song here "Jerk A La Vague". They also have a groovy webpage at, complete with all the swirling colors, music, and videos that one would expect.
