  A single launch is always worthy of support. When the band is as inventive, hard working and thoroughly likeable as Serinette then they absolutely deserve a big crowd.

The Magic And The Mystery Of The Nightingales

  I have just realised that it must be all of thirty years ago that I travelled to see post-post nearly punks The Nightingales playing a gig in a little club in Bradford. The social club was a couple of terraced houses knocked into one and only a street away from Bradford City football ground. I had seen singer/wordsmith Robert Lloyd and the weaving, wandering guitars and rumble of drums of the wonderful Nightingales in triumphal form the previous night in Leeds. But they were up against ....
