The diminutive Peter Barclay was that guy in early 1990s Oakland, the eccentric with the most style, the most talent, the local magician. This self-taught musical wizard recorded at home and produced two barely released albums, 1990’s dreamlike ‘Acceptance’ and 1992’s synth pop ‘What Kind Of World’, winning over the few who heard them.
But fame outside his small circle was not to be, and Barclay was lost in the late-90s crest of the AIDS epidemic. Rediscovered for a new generation, this is queer music at its finest... Welcome to the world of Peter Barclay.
