Low Fi is the third EP by English-French rock band Stereolab, released in September 1992 by Too Pure. The title of the final track "Elektro (He Held the World in His Iron Grip)" is taken from the cover of the thirteenth issue of the comic book Tales of Suspense, released in 1961. It is the first Stereolab release to feature longtime drummer Andy Ramsay and backing vocalist Mary Hansen, who stayed with the band until her death in 2002. The EP was compiled on physical releases of Pulse of the Early Brain. It is not available on most streaming services.
