The Eccentrics parties started some three years ago by Will and Mark, have been a monthly staple of the eclectic nightlife scene in Peckham since its’ inception. The party has hosted many great guests over its’ three years, such as Andi Hanley, Piers Softrocks, Toby Tobias, Phil Mison, Frank Tope, Bill Brewster and many more. This 12” is the culmination of Mark and Will saving their hard earned gig money so they can present the sound of Eccentrics to a wider audience. These edits were put together along with another local hero Sanky (a regular guest) whom has kindly provided the ‘System’ edit and the artwork for the jacket.
‘System’ is a sleazy European synth pop killer with a laissez- faire attitude apparent in those Simmonds drums and quirky analogue keys. Sanky and Mark have added very slight additional production to extend and deliver a great version of this soon to be classic.
‘New York’ takes us on a journey of weird magical melodious intrigue that wouldn’t sound out of place at a Dominic Strauss Kahn European sex party.
‘The Beginning’ is a balearock groove that drops into an extended dubbed out island breakdown before coming up for air again.
‘The End’ is a downtempo slap bass funk rock head nodder that your university professor probably jumped around to in his teens.
Don’t waste any time picking this up as it’s likely to be gone very quickly
