The long-awaited fourth volume in the Stereolab Switched On Series - rounding up non-album tracks, outtakes and rarities from 1999 to 2008, re-mastered from the original tapes and overseen by The Groop.

Electrically Possessed includes the complete out-of-print mini- LP The First of the Microbe Hunters, tour 7"s, unreleased outtakes from the Dots and Loops and Mars Audiac Quintet sessions, and a track called Dimension M2, which was first released in 2005 on the French CD compilation Disko Cabine.
Co-released by the band's own label Duophonic UHF Disks and Warp Records.

After the making of "Dots and Loops" in which we really loved recording with the computer we wanted to build up our own small home recording studio. We bought an Apple desktop computer, a MOTU sound card and Logic 2 software and started to record very simple tracks mainly using samples as inspiration and overlaying them with some guitar, keyboards, and more often than not, Laetitia and Mary would add often wordless vocals. Personally it was the cutting and chopping up of sounds and rhythms that I liked, trying to make little pulse-y songs that were much smaller and simpler than the main Stereolab recordings. Most of these tracks ended up either on tour singles or compilations. "Dimension M2" went onto a compilation LP from our friends Paul & Hervé who had their own design company called Cabine. I wanted to do something upbeat and party-ish for them and this was as close as i could get to that kind of thing - still a bit cool and detached though.
