The Nightingales: Out of True (CD Iron Man Records 2006)
Released 2nd October 2006
The Nightingales, one of the UK’s truly maverick rock groups release their first new album for twenty years on Monday 2 October (Iron Man Records IMB 6017).
Titled “Out of True” the record features fourteen tracks – three re-recordings of recent 7″ singles including “let’s think about living”(a BBC 6 music ‘single of the week’ & observer music monthly ‘track of the month’), a cover of kevin coyne’s “good boy”, a previously unreleased ray davies/kinks song, plus nine brand new group compositions.
On the record the current Nightingales’ line up – mainstay/band leader/lyricist/singer Robert Lloyd, original Prefect guitarist Alan Apperley, ex-pram drummer Daren Garratt, bassist Ste Lowe & wunderkind guitar player Matt Wood – is augmented along the way by the wonderful Gina Birch from the Raincoats (duetting with Lloyd on “black country”), Brummie teen pop sensations Poppy and the Jezebels, bassoonist Brett Richardson &, on double bass, Stewart Brackley, plus the album’s producer Bob Lamb.
The record was recorded at Bob’s studio in Birmingham, England. Bob Lamb is a legendary midlands producer, having made the first few hugely successful UB40 albums, plus having recorded such bands as Spacemen 3 and Broadcast, amongst many others.
The album is to be released in a digipak cover featuring an original painting by the highly talented, upcoming, North England artist David Yates.
The nightingales will be touring the UK in August to promote the new album, supported by (amongst others) NYC band the Victoria Lucas and Dutch dj Marcelle Van Hoof. Dates in mainland Europe will follow soon after and a second tour of the USA is planned for early 2007.
