9/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 December 2012
Wow. The best of this week’s three Fruits De Mer records was hiding, unreviewed in the stockroom when my eye wandered to its place on the shelf. To my utter surprise I saw that it contained a new unreleased track by the legendary Nick Nicely.
Being a long term fan of his remarkable 1982 near-hit ‘Hilly Fields’ and the recently issued ‘Elegant Daze’ comp, I had no idea that he was still recording. The track shows that he has lost absolutely none of his strange slant on late 1960s psych music, his determinedly lo-fi approach creates something quite remarkable and eerie. Despite being wildly more upbeat and guitar-led, it strikes me with the exact same feeling as ‘Hilly Fields’ and his other ‘80s gems.
The Bevis Frond produces a guitar slinging, Stonesy lollop, its hard not to be reminded of a more ramshackle Paul Weller. Anton Barbeau/Three Minute Tease do an ace wandering psych track full of trilling pianos, Ringo-style drum fills and Dukes of Stratosphear melodies, loses a mark by just going on 2 minutes too long. Finally Paul Roland comes on all Syd Barrett with clipped precise vocals erupting into a crashing chorus. Shut one ear and this could be one of the more whimsical offerings on ‘Piper at the Gates of Dawn’.
