Sidewalk Society 4-track EP of Bowie/The Action covers

Limited-run colour vinyl 7” four-track EP

Keith Jones, FdM...

'Sidewalk Society come from California but they have a feel for 60s UK songs like few other bands I know; in the past, they have recorded covers of songs by The Kinks, Rolling Stones and Small Faces for Fruits de Mer; they’ve been away for a while, but they’re back with a 7” featuring two songs originally recorded by The Action and two by David Bowie. I asked band leader Dan Lawrence to fill in a bit of background on the new record....'

“For the Action songs it really is about taking these rough almost certainly "demo" versions of the songs and attempting to bring them into a more fully formed state almost, hopefully not too presumptuously, using our passion for the great albums of that era and interpreting them our way with homage to the period. We are in the process of covering the whole "Rolled Gold" sessions in that spirit – more on that project next year. As for the Bowie songs, it has become an entirely different thing post his passing and makes it a strange coincidence that we had just completed these without any idea obviously, that he was so ill. So much has been said at this point, he was the definition of an artist to the end and a huge influence and inspiration for all of us. The choice of songs was based somewhat on staying away from the well travelled areas and wanting to do some lesser known track"
