Following sell out solo shows, Nick Harper is returning to Hull, this time with a full electric band with a brand new album release, Lies! Lies! Lies!, recorded in Studio La Fabrique, France (Radiohead – Moon Shaped Pool, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds – Push the Sky Away) with the legendary producer Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Pearl Jam, T-Bone, Peter Gabriel). Blake brings his masterful touch to the unceasingly creative cauldron of Nick, his songs and now, his band.
Known for his dazzling performances as a solo acoustic maestro, Nick has teamed up with acclaimed West Country space rock trio ‘Port Erin’ in another guise here as ‘The Wilderness Kids’ to explore his back catalogue of 12 CDs, playing songs previously unheard live and old favourites with a fantastic new twist.
Son of legendary Roy Harper, Nick Harper has been described as ‘One of the finest guitarists of his generation, his soaring vocal range and propensity for epic song place him somewhere between Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley’ (Mojo).
On the bill with Nick and the band for the Hull show is Loudhailer Electric Company – original psychedelic sounds featuring members of seminal cult bands Red Guitars and Dead Fingers Talk making waves with debut album Cursus.
