Nick Lowe - Pinker and Prouder Than Previous LP
Yep Roc Records
On Pinker and Prouder Than Previous, Nick found himself wrapping up his obligation to Columbia Records. Perhaps his most varied release, Pinker and Prouder Than Previous was recorded in Austin, TX, the famed Rockfield Studios in Wales, and in London. Tapping everyone from his current associates Bobby Irwin, Paul Carrack and Martin Belmont to the Fabulous Thunderbirds and The Men They Couldn’t Hang to back him up, this mix of originals and covers actually predicts the stripped down style that revived his career a few years later.
