After the breakup of Rockpile (1981), for Nick Lowe's next band, he continued to work with guitarist Billy Bremner, and added guitarist Martin Belmont, drummer Bobby irwin, and keyboardist and vocalist extraordnaire Paul Carrack (formerly of Ace, Roxy Music, and fresh off his brief but successful stint with Squeeze). As with Rockpile, Lowe was perfectly comfortable sharing the the lead vocal duties with Carrack. This new band incarnation was dubbed 'Noise To Go'. However, with the addition of Carrack's keyboards and crooning vocal style, the music had a somewhat different sound, with more keyboards and ballads added to the pop and rockers. They still could rock out when needed, but overall, they had a bit less aggressive, softer sound than Rockpile. This band was predominantly used on Nick's next 2 solo albums, Nick The Knife (1982) and The Abominable Showman (1983). This band, much like with Rockpile, also served to back up Paul Carrack on his solo album of the time, Suburban Voodoo (1982). The same core band (but with Billy Bremner dropping out to join The Pretenders), and renamed 'Nick Lowe and His Cowboy Outfit', continued on for a couple more Lowe albums (Nick Lowe and His Cowboy Outfit, 1984, and The Rose of England, 1985) and tours. Presented here is a BBC Rock Hour show, taped March 15, 1982 during the 'Nick The Knife' Tour and broadcast on June 27th. This is an excellent representation of Nick's music at that time and a fine addition to your music collection.
