Indie socialist godfathers The Nightingales have been around for over a hundred years (actual year formed 1979). John Peel favourites and relentless purveyors of rancorous political noise; these lads and lasses have been torturing their instruments with malicious, unrelenting and professional zeal for decades, outlasting a raft of wannabees. Never easy for the mainstream to categorise they have ploughed a uniquely ‘Nightingales’ furrow with Robert Lloyd’s sardonic eye and mischievous lyrical turns keeping the band fresh and appealing.
