About Emperor Tomato Ketchup

Emperor Tomato Ketchup is the fourth studio album by English-French rock band Stereolab. It was first released on 18 March 1996 in the United Kingdom by Duophonic Records and on 9 April 1996 in the United States by Elektra Records. The album takes its name from the 1971 experimental film Tomato Kecchappu Kōtei (Emperor Tomato Ketchup) by Japanese author and director Shūji Terayama, whilst the artwork is inspired by the sleeve of a 1964 recording of composer Béla Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra by the Bamberg Symphony conducted by Heinrich Hollreiser. Two singles were released from Emperor Tomato Ketchup: "Cybele's Reverie" and "Metronomic Underground." A video was released for "The Noise of Carpet."
