It is Nick Fyffe’s birthday. Nick’s been hanging around with the Temperance Movement for years now.
He got us our first proper grown up gig at the Albert Hall in London and got his mate Jamie Oliver to Tweet about the band’s first album release.
His dedicated gathering and saving of contact details ensures fluid passage through airports, hook ups at high end shoe stores and video productions by New York artist friends.
He has documented the whole story all the way along by Lyca camera iPhone and GoPro so now no matter where you tread on the stage there’s a camera to capture it…
He also plays bass. Very well. I mean I know. It’s quite a skill to not play a bum note when the singer keeps hitting your headstock with his tambourine. You want to hear The Sludge. It’s my favourite thing he plays just now.
Watched him recently from my seat in the back driving us through rain and failing light and I thought, man, he’s brilliant. What an excellent guy to be in a band with.
We all celebrate with the man today… Ladies and gentlemen… Everybody’s favourite break-dancing Pirate…
….NICK FYFFE !!!
Happy birthday pal.
The Temperance Movement and everyone else who loves the bones of ye… X
