KEITH CROSS & PETER ROSS - Bored Civilians

This recent reissue from Esoteric Recordings first caught our eye when it received a glowing writeup in MOJO magazine. Keith Cross & Peter Ross' Bored Civilians came after Cross' departure from short-lived prog-rock group T2. He took a different path with this next project with Ross, although Bored Civilians' Laurel Canyon-esque folk-rock has enough proggy touches to mark this album as a uniquely British take on the California sound.

"Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of an official re-mastered edition of Bored Civilians, the only album by the duo of Keith Cross & Peter Ross. Cross had earned plaudits as a young guitar virtuoso with the power trio T2 (who recorded an album for Decca Records in 1970). By 1972 his music had developed still further when he teamed up with Ross to record this marvellous album for Decca Records with guest musicians such as Nick Lowe, Jimmy Hastings and B.J. Cole. Highly sought after by collectors of the 'progressive' era, Bored Civilians has been newly re-mastered from the original Decca master tapes and includes two rare B-sides as bonus tracks. This reissue restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay." - Cherry Red
