Brum’s original punk group The Prefects became The Nightingales and enjoyed cult status in the 80s. Re-grouped in 2004, they’ve released several fantastic albums, recorded radio sessions & toured all over the UK & Europe. Current line-up features Robert Lloyd, (The Prefects), Andreas Schmid from Faust, James Smith and ex Violet Violet drummer Fliss Kitson.
“The Nightingales play a uniquely indigenous, all-encompassing brand of working class rock ‘n’ roll. Beneath the Beefheart lurch and the Stooges stomp you can hear football chants and northern soul, blues and bluebeat, folk song and country and western; even music hall and Frank Sinatra. Filter this through mainman Robert Lloyd’s own experiences, observations, temperament and talent and you’ve got music that is as original as it is uncompromising”-
Ben Graham/Stool Pigeon.
