STEREO was created in 1982 as a two piece band by Thierry Noritop and Bernie Adam, both pop music writers and composers. Their first single “Somewhere in the night” was a minor hit that did pretty well in most of Europe, from Italy to the Northern Countries. A second single was issued “No more”, again a minor hit. Despite a very good quality standard, the album “Assembly line” received a mixed welcome, and they decided to call it a day.
Twenty years after, “Somewhere in the night” had become a highly sought after gem in the collectors’ world, especially the 12th that could change hands for 300 pounds a piece! All along, there was a huge interest for the band on Internet.
A big buzz started, and that caught the attention of Veronica Vasicka ,a New York DJ specialized in reissue of rare albums and EPs, dedicated to cold wave music, with her label Minimal Wave Records.
She called the band and proposed to reissue the original album all along with the first single and a previously never released track that Thierry found on a DAT. The album was issued on CD, vinyl and digital, and received a very good welcome all over the world.
Thierry and Bernie decided to make a new album in Düsseldorf, and started working with a sound engineer, Ralf Beck, a friend of Veronica who previously worked with Kraftwerk and Propaganda, two major German bands that had international success. Preparing their work in Thierry’s home studio in Paris, and going regularly to Düsseldorf, the album built up slowly over more than 4 years until total completion in August 2015. The result have been “Back to somewhere“.
At the end of 2015 after the release of “Back to somewhere“, Thierry Noritop decided to work on his first solo album in his own recording studio in Paris, a project he had been working on for many years. The result is STEREO in SOLO with the album „Somewhere out there“, released on CD & Digital in 2018.
The main songs from the album have been remixed by The Frixion, Graflex, Nature of wires, DLeMax, Mystic Experience and Fused : Digital LP ”Flowers on the moon Remixes” & ”Somewhere in the electric city”.
