Eton Crop - Six Silhouette Romances 12"
Eton Crop from Nieuwkoop, Holland started in 1979 and were influenced by The Fall and The Undertones. In 1980 they released the 'Timmy Barker Is A Coward' 7". After this one there's a split tape with punk band Pistache BV. Eton Crop had a good relationship with The Three Johns. They played a lot in the UK. They even did 5 sessions for John Peel.
the 'Six Silhouette Romances' 12" is the band's 3rd release, released on Koesette Tapes, mainly a cassette label. Eton Crop went on to release more records on Bigger Bank Balance (the 'Gay Boys On The Battlefield' 12"), Grunt Grunt A Go Go( the 'It's My Dog, Maestro' LP), Ediesta but at the early 90's the sound changed completely and Eton Crop turned into a dance band.
This record recorded at the famous Joke's Koeienverhuurbedrijf studio and produced by Dolf and Jon Langford.
