The Nightingales

After a group of low-key UK school bands, Robert Lloyd (b. 1959, Cannock, Staffordshire, Britain) produced the Prefects – among the first punk rings – who toured using the Clash. They split in 1979 and Lloyd put together the Nightingales utilizing the greatest of the music artists who had approved through the rates from the Prefects. The to begin many following line-ups comprised Lloyd, Alan and Paul Apperley, Joe Crow and Eamonn Duffy. These were ably championed by BBC Radio 1 disk jockey John Peel off, for whom Lloyd documented even more sessions under numerous guises than some other designer. The Nightingales’ debut solitary, ‘Idiot Power’, premiered in 1981 within the music group’s personal Vindaloo label in colaboration with Rough Trade Information. Joe Crow after that departed and his substitutes, Nick Beales and Andy Lloyd, brought a completely different sound towards the music group.

Lloyd quickly established himself among the even more interesting lyricists within the self-employed chart. The majority of his tirades had been draped in humour: ‘I’m as well tired to accomplish anything today, but tomorrow I’ll begin my diet plan, and answer a few of my enthusiast mail (‘Elvis: THE FINAL Ten Times’). Having less success of following produces led Lloyd and close friends to the brand new Crimson Flame label began by Dave Kitson, the promoter from the Moonlight Membership in London’s Hampstead. Still disappointed with just how record companies had been handling his music group’s profession, Lloyd made a decision to reactivate the Vindaloo label.

When Fuzzbox toured America, acquiring the Nightingales’ key pad player together, Lloyd dissolved the music group and concentrated on the solo profession. The Nightingales’ unique legacy was covered up in 1991 having a compilation recording for Mau Mau Information with sleeve records compiled by a still dedicated John Peel off. The music group re-formed in the beginning of 2004 with Lloyd and Duffy became a member of by Alan Apperley, Peter Byrchmore (acoustic guitar) and Fuzz Townshend (drums).
