Beginner’s guide to Alpinestars

With a brief two-album career an entire decade ago, you could well have forgotten about Alpinestars, so it’s worth taking a moment to remind ourselves who they are and what they achieved.

Key moments

Collaborating with Placebo‘s Brian Molko on Carbon Kid on their second album.

Where to start

Set off with second album White Noise (2002), making sure to get the UK version, which has a couple of bonus tracks (the US version has a video instead).

What to buy

Roll back to the debut album BASIC (2000) and enjoy the exquisite Green Raven Blonde. Actually, those two albums are really all you need.

Don’t bother with

Anything else. Some of the singles have nice extras, but you don’t have to go with them.

Hidden treasure

Partisan Song, the first of the two extra songs on the UK version of White Noise, which is one of the best tracks on the album.
