Joe Nisbet Jr releases an album on KFM Records – The Gospel According to Mr Niz.
Nisbet – a guitarist who has worked for everyone from The Proclaimers to Lau and from Justin Currie to Dick Gaughan – previously toured the USA with his father (Joe Sr), an evangelical preacher.
The album has come together 20 years after the American ‘shows’. Phil Cunningham recorded it at Castlesound in Pencaitland (by coincidence, the building was previously the school Joe Senior attended in the 1930s).
The album’s songs have been rewritten and rearranged without choirs (or tambourines) but the vocals, electric guitar, string bass and trumpet still carry a gospel feel.
The album has a hometown launch at Edinburgh’s Voodoo Room on Tuesday 29th October. (read a review)
