POND fronthuman, founding member of Mink Mussel Creek, ex-Tame Impala bass-player, one half of Allbrook/Avery, drummer with Peter Bibby and noise maker with many more, Nicholas Allbrook is set to release his first solo album through Spinning Top Records on September 5th, 2014. The nine-track album will be released in 2 formats: as a digital download on Friday September 5th and also on Vinyl on Friday October 10th, and features the first official single ‘100 k's ‘round Carmel’.
In a fourteen room trashbag citadel, in an enormous sheepskin coat bequeathed by Jodie, Nick sat in a top floor room and made songs to block out the groans of evil sinful sinful babymaking housemates and drunken revelling and the ever-jabbering n judging voices of the ether.
“Maybe it was the ghost chatter of the Singaporean pro-golfer woman who once housed so many foreign students, ghostily judging me in her healthy happy vivacious ghostdom (note: woman may not be dead). No I did not do the gardening and yes I am a lazy neglectful such n such but take this 808 you cold-hearted she-demon! Take it right in the face with a side dish of melodic middle-class confessions of guilt until you cower and lick yr wounds and I can go back to watching Monkey DVDs and pleasurably julienning my brain”
