Gerry Van King - The King's Crowd Pleasers EP (demo cassette)





Say hello to Gerry Van King. Street Funk musician extraordinaire, aka The King of Sixth Street. Gerry ruled the beer district of Austin TX with his unique lo-fi Prince-on-nitrous-style funky love musings throughout the late 80s and 90s. His tapes are surprisingly hard to find for living in Austin, I wish I could find an entire album from this era, if there is one, but this 4 track EP will have to do for now. His melodies and rhythms are kinda hypnotic in a weird way. And yes, he's kinda off-key, and kinda off rhythm, but its all GERRY VAN KING. Boo ya.
