A Tribute to Françoise Cactus of Stereo Total

Françoise Cactus, singer and multi-instrumentalist of Stereo Total and Die Lolitas, passed away last week at the age of 56 after a music career spanning over three decades.

Her music was irreverent, danceable lo-fi yéyé pop, and her stage shows always a lot of fun.

I came back to this band frequently over the past 25 years. They are a staple in my house, and have inspired many a spontaneous kitchen dance party.

I am going to play some of my favorites from their 11 album career during the first two hours of my show today.
