4treck - Slave Ship
Label: 4track Recordings
Format: 7"


Experimental limited edition 5 track debut EP, with title track which is an accordion-based cover version of the Jesus Lizard's classic 'Slave Ship'

Don't underestimate this limited to 500 copies EP. It's got a funky style that has the potential to make it to both BBC Radio1 ànd Radio 3. The A-Side kicks off with a cover of the Jesus Lizard's 'Slave Ship' done in a musette style. Musette is the accordion music of French Brittany that laid the foundations for cajun and rock'n roll. Though no matter how odd and erratic this may seem 4treck's version of 'Slave Ship' has the ditty magic that would make things go pop at Mardi Gras during its heyday. 4treck isn't French all by the way. It's a home project by one Sam Callow

Track Listing:-
1 Slave Ship
2 Socasam
3 Eastern Promise
4 Frankensinatra
5 Eye Of The Tiger
