Nicole (the origins)

Here's another mp3 unearthed from the vaults and never heard before: the original version of Nicole. This was going to be the version on Romantic Fiction 2. I knew it needed energising and took it along to the recording session I had booked at The Sound Station. It didn't take long to decide to drop it and start what was the final version, which was thrown together in about a day with Lynsey and Calais, and rocks much better. Listening back to this, it has a different feel and might make the grade if it was given a remix and a better drum track, but it's in the past now. I like the bass and brass, I don't much like the guitars and drums. But you might enjoy a different angle on a familiar song. The RF2 version is below for comparison and, if you're not Nicoled out, the vid, with the guitarist pedalling furiously.

  1. It was at the Left Bank (now the GRV). I was support act for the Houdini Box. There’s more here:

    and here

    All Left Bank gigs for a while were filmed and put on their website. I also got a DVD of the whole night.
