GUEST,Ralphie Nic Jones and U.S Mudcatters? (20) RE: Nic Jones and U.S Mudcatters? 07 Oct 13


Firstly, the CD with the butchered body (drawn by Tony Hall UK melodeon player, who appears on Penguin Eggs) is called "Unearhed" (I should know, I produced it!)Some people find the cartoon in bad taste, but Nic loved it, It was his call
I think the reason that Nic is less well known in the US (and indeed Europe) is that he never gigged there! He did make a trip to Oz/NZ once, but after 1982 that was the end of touring, sadly.
It's great that with his return to the stage (after 30+ years) Much to his families surprise, and the splendid TV doc last week. His profile has had a resurgence. Every gig a sell out over here. Ann example. At Nics first comeback appearance at Sidmouth Fest 2 years ago, the queue for his afternoon concert, started forming an hour before the preceeding lunchtime concert, and went all around the block! Stellar line-up too. Martin Simpson, Chris Wood, Kerr and Fagan,
This summer, he hase been gigging with son Joe on guitar, and Belinda O'Hooley Keys/acc. Nic has changed a lot, writing new and thought provoking songs....Have a dig around You Tube for examples.
