The curious case of Craig Nicholls. Hailed as the new Nirvana by the UK press, great reviews in the US. Great sales all round. With a Niravana like sound along with a touch of 60's British psychedelia. Everything was going so well with world domination beckoning how could it go wrong? Some would describe it as erratic behaviour, some may even use the rock n roll cliche of 'a tourtured soul' ect.., but round these parts it's described as being a 'complete knob'. Later diagnosed with aspergers syndrome and a decision to stop touring. What ever the reason for Criag Nichols so called rock n roll schenigans, it seems the public at large (certainly here in the UK) can tolerate such behaviour when your from the Northern hemisphere but when you can seek refuge from the world by nipping down to the beach, well it's a complete turnoff. And that's exactly what happened people turned off. Shame really because the albums that followed were all pretty solid if not quite matching the zest of the first. For a few brief moments these guys were real contenders. Highly Evolved is highly recommended.
