Dirty Yellow Mist

The NoMen perform “Dirty Yellow Mist” by ‘My Solid Ground’ a Krautrock Klassic from 1971.
Heard this song on Sunday on ‘The Active Listerers’ dark psychedelic show on Mix Cloud –

Sent the NoMen the link on YouTube and asked them to learn it! (Two chords… C and Dm)

The NoMen arrived at the studio on Tuesday without having learned the song! The drummer didn’t even turn up. Ran through the song with the guitarist playing drums. Sounded good!
Recorded it in one take with drums, bass and guitar chords. Overdubbed extra drums then overdubbed lead guitar and fuzz guitar. Made up some new words based on what we could make out from the original on YouTube. Recorded the vocal and some chanted backing vocals as well as some choral sounds on keyboard. Job done!!!
Video was shot during the overdubbing and vocal stage.
Dancing shadow ladies came from a different dimension…

More Radio – Stavros the Dalek!!!

The NoMen are back on their radio station at MixCloud with another mixed bag of goodies! After clearing up the bottles left by last weeks guest presenter Steve Treatment we have another guest presenter this week who goes by the name of “Stavros the Dalek!

TRACKS –

Dr. Who – BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Witch – The Rattles
Lucifer Sam – Pink Floyd
The Mummy – Bob Mcfadden
A spooky start to the show… 

Hollywood Freaks – Beck
Baby Boy – Richard Harris
Noude Ma Gnin Tche De Me – Orchestre Poly Rhythmo Do Cotonou
Rattlin’ Roarin’ Wullie – Mr Luggs
How Does It Feel – The Creation
Past Present Future – Shangri Las
The Breaking Hands – The Gun Club
Hully Gully Guitar – The Percells
Fraternity Row – The Lady Bug
The Percells does not have Duane Eddy on guitar, nor was the singer his wife, girlfriend or mum as Brian NoMan says on the show! The ‘Lady Bugs’ is a Girls in the Garage classic! The girls are American and they are supposed to be singing in a Liverpool accent but they sound more Chinese!!!

Eye-Shaking King – Amon Düül
Poptones – PIL
I’ve Got My Car And TV – Faust
Jim’ll Fix It Theme – BBC Orchestra

Anyway, theNoMen have just finished recording a new session of four or five songs that will be broadcast on next weeks NoMen FM show. There are cover versions of Donavan, The Small Faces, Sparks and a couple of originals as well… should be interesting!?! Tune in!

DOWNLOAD PSYCHO DELI ALBUM!

Psycho Deli was the first album recorded by the current line-up of the NoMen i.e Allan, Brian, Jamie and George. It was recorded at Topplers Studio between February and April 2010.
Videos for each track were made and posted on the NoMen’s YOUTUBE channel.
The full album, regarded by many as the NoMen’s best, is now available to download from BandCamp and is, as always, completely free!

Psycho Deli by The NoMen.
Psycho Deli by The NoMen (2010)

The album was a mix of obscure cover versions and a couple of ‘originals’. There is a vaguely psychedelic sixties feel to much of Psycho Deli and George NoMan had just read Julian Cope’s “Japrock Sampler” and was beginning to experiment with writing in the style of Les Raillizes DeNudes (or, as we later found out, blatantly copying Les Raillizes DeNudes!!!)

The above two videos show the influence of LRD on the 2010 NoMen.
