These New Yorkers have been skillfully crafting their signature gospel of roots-reggae-ska fusion for the better part of 30 years, and in doing so rightfully earning a reputation as one of the most engaging live bands in the world. Back in 1996, the NY Times declared the Slackers to be part of “the sound of New York”, a mantle they haven’t given up since.

Originally released on Hellcat in 2006, "Peculiar” has remained timeless, continuously heralded as a true testament to their energy on stage and what makes them such a treasured band by fans across the globe. Alternative Nation called it “protest music made for dim, sweaty basements - The Slackers would sound at home supporting Rancid just as well as some grizzled New Orleans electric blues trio.”

While “Peculiar” isn't a proper live album, the band managed to turn a club into their studio and truly strike a balance between their incredible live show and their equally impassioned studio work. The rhythm parts of the album were laid down during a live performance at reknowned Dutch ska club Ernesto’s (in Sittard, Holland), with vocal overdubs added later in the studio. In addition to many soon to be favorites, the setlist also includes tracks from their previous War Criminal EP, reinterpreted, reframed and played quite differently from their original release.

“Peculiar” ranks right up there with Redlight and The Question as one of the Slackers' best - certainly one of the most played and cherished albums in their arsenal.

Pirates Press Records is proud to have teamed up with the band to bring you this incredible expanded gatefold version of “Peculiar”, including a bonus 45 carrying two additional tracks from the project not offered with the original Hellcat release.

Everytime I listen to The Slackers, I just really want to smoke up. Extremely relaxing music to sit around to, or on long drives.

Reviewed this before, but after listening to it many times over decided to get it on Vinyl as well. Looking at my old review forgot to mention plenty... "Sauron" is an awesome instrumental and "What Went Wrong" is quite possibly one of the best Slackers songs. Glen Pine delivers it beyond perfect. "Keep It Simple" and "Peculiar" are still awesome songs. Album overall has a Trad-Ska vibe with an old school rock and roll tempo.
