Peter Elkas – 7″ Vinyl Single



Peter Elkas

Poor Young Things b/w Repeat Offender

Rock and soul from Canada’s handsome stranger. “Poor Young Things” is a “buddy rock” stomper ala “Night Moves” or “Glory Days” (see “Bromance“). “Repeat Offender” is a steady contemplation on a heartbreaker who can’t change his ways. For fans of The Boss, Tom Petty and Sam Cooke. Peter used to play in The Local Rabbits while delivering ice cream for Nestle in Montreal.

Peter Elkas: vocals, guitars, harmonica, bass on PYT

Joel Plaskett: drums, bass on Repeat Offender, harmony vocal

Joel’s Notes

Peter is one of my oldest and most talented friends, so it was fitting that the first recording at Scotland Yard be with him. We recorded this on my half inch Otari 8 track , drank some whiskey and had a lot of fun. He showed up with “Repeat Offender” ready to rock, mentioned something about Keith Richards solo records, and away we went. He showed me the beginnings of “Poor Young Things” and we finished writing it together so I could be his Miami Steve.
