The New Nonsense

by Nightingales

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    As you surely know, vinyl production delays are endemic around the globe. One of the victims of this was a mooted 12" single for the Nightingales' return to stage after nearly two years, which is happening now in the UK. Because Covid restrictions prevented the band from rehearsing, let along writing and recording new material, they decided to release a 'remix' 12". Being the Nightingales, this was unlikely to bog-standard! 

    The rather inscrutable Robert Lloyd is a fan of The Go! Team, and he asked that band's leader - Ian Parton - to have a go at one of Four Against Fate's songs. The world of post-punk and industrial dance overlap only slightly and only now and again, so you may not know that Birmingham's DJ Surgeon is a giant of the genre. To put it another way, some of his videos have more than 150 times what the average Nightingales video receives, and so Rob and the gang were delighted when Herr Surgeon himself reworked another Nightingales song. And to put a cap on it all, the mysterious man at Faust Studio in Scheer, Germany - one 'Randy Kuntz' - remixed a third tunes, then Robert put together a cover with cellotape and highlighters and decided that it looked better with the back cover offset 90 degrees from the front.

    About two weeks before the band's current tour, we received word that receipt of the 12" would be pushed back to the start of January. So the 12", "The New Nonsense", is now a discographical oddity. We're taking pre-orders for it now, but it's a limited edition which will not be re-pressed when we sell out, as 12" singles cost the same to make as as LPs, you can't sell them for as much and, it's a crowded field with the new album, deluxe reissues of "Hysterics" and "In The Good Old Country Way" both coming soon, along with an LP version of the King Rocker soundtrack, and a few more surprises

Nightingales Birmingham, UK

Robert Lloyd's career began at the start of punk, as leader of Birmingham's best punk band, The Prefects, who were wildly ahead of their time in experimentation and age, despite their relative youth.

After the band's evolution into The Nightingales, Robert Lloyd become the combo's sole constant member, and he's led the band through a dozen or so brilliant albums across at least as many labels.
