Product Description

Led by singer/lyricist Robert Lloyd ('The most underestimated songwriter of his generation' according to Ben Thompson in the Independent) the latest incarnation of the Nightingales - the best batch yet - release their new album "No Love Lost" on Cooking Vinyl in April 2012. Born out of Birmingham's original punk group The Prefects, the Nightingales have stubbornly ploughed their own furrow in the field of alternative rock n roll for three decades. Described in John Robb's definitive post punk biography 'Death To Trad Rock' as "the misfits' misfits", the band has constantly garnered praise and respect from other artists and received endless glowing press reports, particularly for their live shows. To coincide with the album's release the Nightingales will be touring the UK and mainland Europe. The UK shows follow their May 2011 tour which culminated in a headline performance at the Southbank Centre in London as part of Stewart Lee's Austerity Binge and the Festival Of Britain, which Mojo magazine called "Astonishing" and "Gig of the year". In addition to the group's own activity there is a Nightingales 'tribute' album planned featuring 'Gales covers by punk and post punk legends (Raincoats, Mekons, Subway Sect, others), young contemporary bands (Art Brut, Lovely Eggs, others), stand up comedians (Stewart Lee, Phill Jupitus) and academic/author Greil Marcus.

I don't usually write reviews - but I feel I have to balance the paltry 1-star offered up by the previous reviewer. It's one thing not to like the Nightingales,but to mislead people is "criminal". If you like your music to be rough, raw, punky, spikey, relevant, funny and soulful, then this is for you. If however, you like "well-produced" music to read the Sunday Times to..... Yes this is "Pub Rock" , but for the sort of Pub you'd find in Heaven.
The Nightingales sound fresher than most trad-rock / pop bands around - go see them live for the best experience and look at them through the bottom of a pint glass - you know it makes sense!
This isn't a bunch of old farts who've re-formed just to make easy money touring the old "hits"(Hi, Johnny!)- this is a couple of old farts and some young farts doing something different - expanding and improving on the old, rather than being stuck in it.
Oh - and buy the album so that they can be rich for once!!

...and one of the finest albums I have ever heard. Just gets better and deeper with time / time spent with it. The Nightingales seem to draw from a bottomless well of irresistable, stomping (and beautiful) riffs and brilliant lyrics. If you love The Fall*, Beefheart, Velvet Underground, New York Dolls, the finest Glam rock (y,know all the GOOD stuff) you owe it to your ears to get this. After a few plays you'll wonder how you lived without it.

(*sorry, tedious ref in this context, I know, but if you follow MES and don't know about the 'Gales, you're REALLY missing out.)

Love this Band If you dont get it/them YOU ARE MISSING OUT. I dont care if you HAVE TO PLAY IT AGAIN & AGAIN you will gain from the shockingly beautiful art & craft employed. I remember seeing them support the Godfathers & feeling not enough people were cheering loud enough because they were STUNNINGLY good. After I said to the drummer he was brilliant & the band were trying to kill him because the first five numbers would have finished off so many. Sharp, sophisticated, technically brillant with lovely punk attitude. Live a little, learn a lot.

In common with others, I really feel that I have to write a review to provide a bit of balance to the reviewer that awarded 1-star (btw there are 30 samples to try to prevent such epic fails on expectations).

John Peel liked a bit of Nightingales and he liked a bit of Fall. Since the bands are cut from Captain Beefheart cloth and centre around the social observations of their cunning linguists, they are always going to be compared. I'll be honest. In their first incarnation (79-86), I didn't much care for The Nightingales; too much jangle and the sound didn't seem to progress. But that was then...

Since 2004, The Nightingales have been putting stuff out there for anyone who wants to listen. It's not the smoothest sound - sometimes it jars...but there again, sometimes you get a bit of bassoon floating in. This is never going to be music that you 'get' on the first listen; nor are you going to get to grips with the nuances of Robert Lloyd's prose on first listen. What you get is a music of indefinite parentage - a Heinz 57 mongrel of musical delights which takes time to masticate, digest and enjoy.

In the last few years, The Nightingales have become one of the few guitar-based bands whose albums I pre-order; The Fall have disappeared from that exclusive list.
