Nightingales MIND OVER MATTER Vinyl Record

Nightingales MIND OVER MATTER Vinyl Record
180-gram gatefold LP version. The Nightingales were formed by vocalist Robert Lloyd, formerly of The Prefects (part of The Clash's White Riot Tour, John Peel favorites, etc.), recorded a bunch of albums and 45s in the 1980s, and played shows throughout Europe as headliners and in support of acts as diverse as Bo Diddley and Nico, but stopped working when Lloyd decided to combine a solo career with money-earning manual labor. In 2004, Lloyd reformed the band, not as a nostalgia act performing old material for the entertainment of the affluent and aging ex-punk/indie brigade, but as an uncompromising, confrontational contemporary group. After much coming and going of various mercenary, starry eyed, wastrel and/or part time musicians, Lloyd met Andreas Schmid during the recording of Insult to Injury in 2008; Schmid joined the band and the group, as Lloyd says, got good. The Nightingales then got great when former Violet Violet drummer Fliss Kitson joined the group before the recording of No Love Lost in 2012. This lineup (completed by original Prefect Alan Apperley on guitar) became a top-notch live unit and, following the sold-out, self-released For Fuck's Sake LP (2014), the streamlined four-piece Nightingales embarked on their most successful UK tour to date before writing and recording Mind Over Matter in September, 2014, at the end of a short tour of Germany and Austria. Mind Over Matter is a short, sharp blast of melody, rhythm, irritation, and humor. The group might play around but does not fuck around. They may indulge themselves but do not waste your time. They could be insane but are most certainly diligent. The album is released to coincide with a session for Marc Riley's BBC 6 Music show on May 13, before a tour of the UK and Ireland and trips to West Coast USA and mainland Europe. A compilation of covers of 'Gales songs by various fans/artists is also scheduled for release in 2015 or '16. Like the band's three preceding albums, Mind Over Matter was recorded in Germany at Hans-Joachim Irmler's Faust Studio and produced by the 'Gales bassist and Faust Studio house engineer Andreas Schmid.
