Nikki Sudden - Back to the start / Ringing on my train 7" (1981)























This is the first of a series of posts about Nikki Sudden's singles and EPs discography. This is the first thing he released under his name after Swell Maps disbanded (he seems to regret this separation in the booklet's notes of the Waiting on Egypt/Bible Belt double CD). Recorded in September 1980, released in February 1981, only the B-side would be on his first LP (i.e., Waiting on Egypt) almost a year later (in 1982). NS amateurs won't find his Stones-era-Exile on Main Street style here but a cross between the Fall and Madness, and of course some Swell Maps remains. He said that "Ringing on my train" was an attempt to re-do T. Rex's "Free Angel" but I don't really see where's the link. Enjoy it here. A way to maintain NS's music memory alive.

Thanks very much! I'm really looking forward to listening to this, and to whatever other Nikki Sudden music you post. A great idea!
