SLEEVE NOTES

The time and space I happen to frequent is full of treasures but,
thanks to The Levellers for getting me off the strait and narrow
and to Jackie, Lily and Harvey for keeping me on track;
Moose and Dan for making sonic bombs and Steve for sampling them (from Yatesbury);
Tank, Baso, Roddy, and Sparky Smith for the best potting shed in the world;
Paula for everything above, beyond, below and beneath the call of duty
and everyone else who puts up with me in the vain hope I might grow up one day...

I am, currently, Nick Harper


REVIEWS

Guitarist February 2006

Roy's boy gets Country Life out of his system

Clever guy Nick one moment the cheeky chappie we know and love the next a grouchy rural Dylan for the iPod generation. And so in characteristically schizophrenic fashion we get a spoof Bush rant before the choking bile of his anti Iraq war song 'Knuckledraggers', a frantic acoustic guitar meltdown on 'Real Life' and with 'Bloom' a hauntingly beautiful, but disturbing opus that sounds almost Pink Floydian in concept. Oh, and just for good measure there's the Stanley Unwin-like monologue of 'A Wiltshire Tale'. It's all very wacky, but all very wonderfully English; kind of like John Betjeman with a guitar.

Standout tracks: Bloom, Real Life, Sleeper Cell
