WILD GEESE "The Wild Geese EP" WAS/IS DEEP HOUSE TECHNO REISSUE 12"
A chance encounter at university during the Acid House summer of ’88 and subsequent bonding over Baby Ford’s “Oochy Koochy” established a life-long friendship between Leicester lads, Jimi O’Callaghan and Al Green. Inspired by the sounds of Detroit, early NY House like Murk and Masters at Work and the emerging UK sounds of LFO, Orbital and Aphex Twin, the pair began DJing and making music as The Wild Geese. Their first EP, “The Wild Geese EP”, was released in 1994 on their own Giddy Goose Recordings imprint. The guys pressed 500 copies and, with Jimi’s connections made interning with Pete Tong’s FFRR, sold copies direct to London shops. The record sported packaging designed to look like an American 12” and an accompanying press release attributed the EP to a fictitious DJ duo hailing from Wisconsin. Rave reviews followed and a distribution deal was struck with Vital UK, who produced and sold another 500 copies worldwide. Another EP followed a year later. Sadly, plans for a third EP on the label never materialized, but the pair remain close to this day. 24 years later we are honored to reintroduce this genre-defying, uniquely forward-thinking EP to today’s dance floors.
