Review of forthcoming NIGHTINGALES album

(Skug magazine by Heinrich Deisl)):

The Nightingales, follow-up project of Birminghams first legendary punkband the Prefects around Robert Lloyd, that supported acts like Nico or Bo Diddley, are back with a nonchalant noisy album. While we’re in history: Lloyd, in his various incarnations, has been a regular guest at John Peels, only outplayed by the Fall. Lloyd, Alan apperley, Daren Garrett and young Matt Wood drone themselves through 12 rocknumbers, containing Avantgarde, Punk and borrowings to große kosmische musik – (annotation: i like that one) there are two guest appearances by Faust bass player Andreas Schmid (he he) – held together by Lloyds grumbly(?) singing, that sometimes sounds like Iggy Pop. Rock&Roll and Surf also consistently look around the corner: not for nothing the ‘gales dedicate “insult to injury” to Bo Diddley and Link Wray. This record scores with bulkiness, lots of bittersweet (there’s no way to translate Hinterfotzigkeiten… backc..tness? something like sneakyness) and pop-down to earth melancholy. A tour is coming up in spring 2009. Don’t miss it.

The Nightingales – Pigs On Purpose

On this date in 1982, The Nightingales released their debut album, Pigs On Purpose. It contained the single, “Use Your Loaf”. The Birmingham, England post punk band rose from the ashes of The Prefects, a punk band that included original Nightingales members Robert Lloyd, Paul Apperley, Eamonn Duffy and Joe Crow. Nightingales disbanded in 1986 after three albums and numerous lineup changes. They have reunited and released new material.
