IMB 6017 The Nightingales: Out of True CDLP Buy it

Nightingales - Out of True

Out Of True was released Monday 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, European distribution by Cargo). 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.
