The Nightingales / Stewart Lee - Ten Bob Each Way / Use Your Loaf
This joint Nightingales / Stewart Lee 7" kickstarts a lengthy campaign of reissues by Robert Lloyd's combo, The Nightingales from Call Of The Void and Fire Records, in the wake of the acclaimed documentary from Fire Films, King Rocker. "Ten Bob Each Way" / "Use Your Loaf" is released in conjunction with the airing of the long-awaited Michael Cumming-directed, Stewart Lee-written film, King Rocker, which tells the tale of Robert's markedly unique four-decade career in music.
Stewart Lee and Nick Pynn recorded "Use Your Loaf" in the attic of Brighton's beloved mini music café, Jane Bom-Bane's and was originally recorded for a mooted Nightingales tribute album. "Ten Bob Each Way" is a brand-new Nightingales recording, their first since recording the "Four Against Fate" album. It was recorded at Woodbine Street Studios, whose in-house producer, John Rivers, worked previously with Swell Maps and The Specials, among many others. A tale of work drudgery related through the tedium of recurring jokes "handed down like diseases", "Use Your Loaf" is the favourite of many 'gales fans and was widely praised by Mark E. Smith as "typically brilliant".
Originally recorded as a single by The Nightingales way back in 1982, for Cherry Red Records. It was subsequently re-recorded for their debut album, ‘Pigs On Purpose’, which will be almost simultaneously reissued in deluxe expanded form through Call Of The Void.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
