What started as a writing session to come up with some ideas for Prince Perry (who is now relocated to Costa Rica) became the foundation for this instrumental EP. King Kong 4 recorded the beds live off the floor without a care or a click track at Slaughterhouse 754 over two years ago. Coming across the tracks a couple of years later they’ve filled out the songs with additional guitars, organ and percussion.
The EP and song titles are taken from Nevil Shute's post-apocalyptic novel, On The Beach, the story a group of people waiting for the-end-of-the-world following a nuclear war.
