I found Nick’s music by accident – one day browsing the net and one of the first things I thought when I listened to it was: how did I never hear this before? Well… as popular as Nick was (is) in some circles – he was very “indi” (with indi not being what it’s now and having indi music in every car/lcd-tv/phone tv ad) artist even in his own time.

Living frugal life of very low income (£20 per week – yes – even in the 70′ it was very little) he managed to creative some of the best songs I have ever heard. I will stop bored you now and just post some of my favourite songs – will limit to five as I could post every song from every album.

Day is Done

Pink Moon

Parasite

Fly
