Album Notes
Whilst being at the heart of various successful bands, big band folk trailblazers Bellowhead; power folk trio Faustus; the Seth Lakeman band, Benji Kirkpatrick was making plans and writing material for his own project – The Excess. A trio: comprising of fellow Bellowhead band mate, Pete Flood on drums and Pete Thomas (Megan Henwood and Jackie Oates) on bass.
With Benji leading on bouzoukis - electric and acoustic - and guitar the band stoke up rhythm’s, riffs and uproarious, soaring melodies; sometimes cacophonous, sometimes stark and raw, sometimes sensitive, always powerful. .
With a pack of new songs at the ready the band recorded their first album with Westpark Music. They also drew on material from Benji’s critically acclaimed Boomerang album as well as a couple of choice selections from his 2015 release Hendrix Songs, re-interpretations of the work of one of his musical heroes, Jimi Hendrix.
Opting for the classic power trio line up, Benji’s writing is brought to life with this fresh, vibrant sound and is propelled in an exciting new direction.
