Nick, along with some great friends recently spent some time in London’s Abbey Road Studios to record four brand new original songs. The EP is titled ‘More Life Than You Can Shake A Stick At’ and will be released February 8th 2020 digitally and on gold 10″ vinyl.
A single taken from this is available now. The song is called ‘Hokey Pokey’ Upon it’s release Nick discovered that not only is there a Children’s song called Hokey Pokey but that it is a name for a satanic ritual! “I had no idea about this until I googled to check that the digital release was live. I thought the older song was called Hokey Cokey and there is one, but I found out the tradition song is spelt like mine. Then I read that it has something to do with a satanic ritual! That worried me a bit. My song is far from anything as dark as that. I actually based it on a story I was told earlier this year when I was in Germany buying a vintage tape machine for the studio. The Engineer who looked after the machine told me his friend met a lady on holiday he called Hokey Pokey who he thought he was doing pretty well with. But when he returned home from holiday he wrote a couple of letters to her but never heard anything back. I liked the name so wrote it on my phone thinking it would make a good story for a song”
