WHITE SAILS - 4 TRACK VINYL RECORD
MINT 7" FDM EP. PRODUCT CODE: WINKLE11
White Sails are a new band who joined the Fruits de Mer lobster pot last summer - a group combining musicians from the USA (Leigh Gregory) and Finland (Ville Vilpponen and his brother, Jaakko). Leigh and Ville are long-time members of the San Francisco music scene – Leigh fronted Mellow Drunk for many years, while Ville is a member of the power-pop band The Bias; their first album, ‘The Great Western’ was released last year on Ruska Records.
An acoustic instrumental single – two Black Sabbath covers, together with two original songs, one written by Leigh, the other by Ville. Keith at FdM explains...
Why Sabbath, you might ask? First of all, don’t panic – Fruits de Mer isn’t drifting too far from its psychedelic routes (although, as Mae West once said, “I used to be Snow White, then I drifted”, and I love their first five LPs). But, in my humble opinion, the original recordings of Laguna Sunrise and Fluff – hidden away on ‘Vol 4’ and ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath’ respectively, are just SIMPLE, beautiful little instrumentals, whoever they’re by (so much so, my missus and I had Fluff played at our wedding reception – my idea, I’m afraid). And White Sails interpret them so well, as well as delivering two subtle instrumentals of their own to make for a cracking four-track EP. (incidentally, I did have the idea of calling the single Sabbath Mellow Sabbath, given Leigh’s history – but that rightly got voted off somewhere along the way).
