INSTRUMENTAL (Sangraal)

After the production excesses of Nick's last full-length CD 'Smithereens', the latest from "son-of" is an antidote, a 7-track 24-minute effort which showcases Nick's considerable talents as acoustic guitarist on a set of self-composed pieces. This time round, these are in the main fairly gentle, though certainly not instantly forgettable, and display a great deal of delicacy and inventiveness, particularly in the use of harmonics. The revisit of 'Riverside' (from 'Light At The End Of The Kennel') features Nick's trusty 11-string with some robust playing that defines his stylish approach. Just to confuse matters, and with a typically Harperesque perversity, the CD's final track, though titled 'Instrumental', features a vocal (it's a "snipe at apathy" - familiar description or what?!). Harper's bizarre maybe, not exactly weird, but certainly wonderful.
