release date - Saint Etienne

London indie label wiaiwya is extraordinarily thrilled to be putting out the new single from POP heroes Saint Etienne.

You know this already, but Saint Etienne formed in 1990. Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs had previously written Caff, the fanzine that was also a record label (they released 17 singles between 1989 and 1992, including releases by Pulp, Manic Street Preachers, Galaxie 500 and the Orchids)
The first Saint Etienne album, Foxbase Alpha, was released in 1991 – for me it was a dance record for an indie fan, for my friends it was an indie record for dance fans, and it was one of very few records we agreed on. Pete and Bob also released two Cola Boy singles.

In 1993 they collaborated with Kylie, and released ‘So Tough’ (I shoplifted it on tape from WHSmiths, but that didn’t stop it reaching No. 7 in the UK albums chart). 1994’s ‘Tiger Bay’ reached No. 8, and two years later they released a compilation album, ‘Too Young to Die’, which came with a companion disc of amazing remixes.

20 years ago, ‘Good Humor’ came out on Creation Records (and Sub Pop in the US) – they have just finished an anniversary tour.

They’ve made five more albums to date, and in 2005 they made a film, ‘What Have You Done Today, Mervyn Day?’ documenting the Lea Valley before it was transformed into the 2012 Olympic site. In 2007 they were artists-in-residence at the newly refurbished Royal Festival Hall in London.

Sarah has also released a couple of solo albums, Bob has written a few books, and Pete has recorded a few soundtracks

And now they’ve done a single for wiaiwya!


  1. Missed out on this one and the Wedding Present single. Are there any plans for second pressings or digital releases?

  2. Can you post the "sleeve approvals" images for the Saint Etienne single, please.

  3. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Great can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Great . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail: or
