Nicknicelypsychotropia

One for pimply little postboys everywhere! Cycladelic I tells ya, and a huge influence on Partridge’s Dukes! Really love this early eighties sounding psychedelia – kinda reminds me of a cross between Grind“, Talk Talk and Duran Duran … with a whiff of Stephen Duffy. The four tracks below date from 1980, 1981 and 1983; Nick Nicely‘s “Psychotropia” compilation was first released in 2004 by Sanctuary (cd) and Tenth Planet (lp), and now it’s been reissued by Grapefruit (via Cherry Red, 2010). Update #1: there’s a more recent vinyl lp on Captured Tracks: Elegant Daze(CT-126, 2011-11-29), while Fruits de Mer have released a 7″ with both a new and the original version of Hilly Fields(cat. no. Crustacean 27, 2012) ànd have announced Nick’s new album Lysergiafor “sometime in 2012”. Unclear when & whether that will appear on lp / cd but the cassette edition on Burger has already sold out, apparently. Update #2: Mr Nicely will perform at the Wastelands festival at Dok, Ghent (Belgium) on 2012-08-11 (18:30 CET).
