    Hi Barry. I would certainly hope to get to the Chi gig but as always on a weekday I'm at the mercy of work so will not be able to say for sure until much nearer the time.

    Too bad that's not Chi-cago! It must be about five years since I saw Nick at the Abbey Pub with Cy. Shook his hand and got a photo with Nick after (in my photos here), but I forgot to buy his next beer. Encouraged he's trying to find an excuse to come to the Americas again. He had a good crowd, but it should've been bigger. It seems like our youth are trying to build a new wave of music appreciation and experimentation, but the whole economic model has changed, especially for new or under-discovered artists.

    Expect I'll download the new effort soon.

    The whole music business is weird now. But maybe this album will get some attention if we pass the info along!

    Do try to spead the word over there NC :)

    Phew! Nix arrived today and I've just had the one listen so far. I think this will please all parties in the 'where should Nick's music be going?' debate (especially him, I suspect!!)! I think it is a classic after one listen. Thanks, Nick.

    Definitely album of the year for me so far. Beautiful complicated fast melodic acoustic guitar and on some tracks almost sounds like Roy singing. His high hymnal singing on one track is very lachrymosially evocative and you wonder how he can sing/coo so long without breathing, unless it's an electronic dub on ? A x

    That is all.

    Oh no it isn't! Anyone else found the hidden message?

    The first original song I ever recorded I sang the backing rhythm vocal track for three-and-one-half minutes straight by breathing in on every fourth bar while still enunciating the nonsense words I used. I doubt that's what Nick did, but now I have to order it to see. (I'm guessing perfect breathing and overlapping vocals with long fades.)

    Andy: Nick confirmed that he held that one note near the end of 'Breathe' for 1 minute and 10 seconds. Just in case you're keeping count :cool: He says it's a skill he's worked on over the years!

    Critch: my head started to hurty when I tried to track the letters :( will go back to it later ;)

    Hidden message is definitely a tribute to his parents in the lyrics, and, how to cope with relationships in a very clever philosophical way inherited, would be my interpretation...but could change with relistens x

    Here's a hidden message clue (after sitting puzzling it out the other day and getting super excited when I recognised what he was doing): there's one for each song, and 9 is significant. OOOH.
