Biography

Somewhere in London a musician carries the keys to the musical kingdom. In his Technicolor sonic scope are all kinds of sounds, from rock to country to soul to pop. Nothing is off limits, as long as it has a groove and goodness based in reality. The musician has been performing for 40 years, but is as fresh today as the first time he stepped on stage. There are no tricks or short cuts here. ... Read more in Amazon's Nick Lowe Store

One of my favorite albums of all time, In 1979 I thought this album was such a cool sound, not punk, not retro Rock& Roll but something new, for me it was New Wave, this album was recorded the same time as Dave Edmunds Repeat When Necessary (you need both) there was a TV special called Born Fighters (check it out on youtube) recorded at the time (1978) and I was hoping that would make a bonus DVD for this release but alas no, the bonus tracks that make the cut are the dark and somber Basing Street (b-side of Crackin Up), and single release American Squirm (which replaced Endless Grey Ribbon on the original U.S. lp release) if you want a Deluxe style experience then purchase the Dave Edmunds album to go with it, the two go hand in hand, Just look at that Barney Bubbles cover this is New Wave.

The high-water mark album of Nick Lowe's chequered career features the familiar single version of his biggest hit, 'Cruel to be kind', as well as several other witty songs, all with a great pop twist and the wonderful sheer artistry of Dave Edmunds and Billy Bremner on guitars.

Trivia: Nick Lowe and Rockpile sessioned on Mickey Jupp's Juppanese album (Buy that one too, it's great). They backed him up on his song 'Switchboard Susan'. He hated their cut of it, so Nick bought the tape. It's a standout track on here and Mickey Jupp should have kept it. His loss, our gain.

Fantastic album. Buy it NOW.

Not punk but a new wave classic. I have always loved Nick Lowe and this album was recorded with Rockpile which was a classic line up! There are some really strong tracks on this album. The opening Cruel to be Kind keeps me pressing the repeat button as I love the fantastic melody and the sentiment. There are other tracks which stand out on the album but for me Cruel to Be Kind is a good enough reason to buy this by itself!
