Session Victim and Erobique join forces once again for a beautiful cover version of Mark Almond‘s “The City” starring Jamie Lloyd’s enticing vocals and featuring Linnart Ebel on rhythm guitar.
Ever since Hauke Freer stumbled over Mark Almond‘s final studio album Other People’s Rooms at Montreal record store Death Of Vinyl a few years ago, the pair would regularly finish DJ nights with this 1978 recording of their hit single “The City” – and since then, the idea of recording their own rendition had been tossed around frequently. Carsten “Erobique” Meyer was not the first but really the duo’s only choice to see this through and well, just listen to the impeccable Rhodes/Clavinet combination he came up with.
However, it is Sydney’s Jamie Lloyd who steals the show and takes the song into his realm, putting his very own stamp and character on this certified classic. Long time collaborator Linnart Ebel completes the band with his ever subtle rhythm guitar. The two, three, four, five man house, not house band branches out for all the right reasons and this is the result.
