Single- Nick Jaguar – Ride On -

Press Release-
‘Ride On' drags you on a journey into darkest Americana...

Ride On is a menacing gothic western that evokes images of expansive and dangerous desert plains. This beautiful melding of fifties style double bass and rhythm guitar with rockabilly and 60’s garage-band takes those references and slows them down to forge a shuffling, edgy, cinematically cool sidearm.

The first offering from Nick Jaguar will just as likely attract fans of Tarantino movies as it will Pixies, Beck, Last Shadow Puppets or Portishead lovers. Sharing similar derivatives; twangy reverb, Dick Dale surf guitar, abstract image-heavy lyrics, it successfully draws these influences together into a well rounded timeless blanket.

Originally intended as a b-side and recorded primarily in a garage, the resulting production has a warm, ballsy, lo-fi appeal and the lyrics conjure noir screenplays, bank robbers, rail-roads cowboys, blood-suckers and Mexican bare knuckle fist fights. Ride On drags you on a journey into darkest Americana.

Nick Jaguar -
'Ride On was engineered by Manuel Mera and mastered with Andy Baldwin, an engineer who has just mastered a live music archive for 'The Who'. It has taken at least 3 years to get around to recording and I was totally obsessive about the sounds I wanted to achieve and some of the parts got recorded at least three times because that analogue quality just wasn’t right. In the end I had to go out and track down the instruments, which took yet more time. I originally intended to use a Fender Jaguar with the Vox Jaguar organ but it was a gorgeous 63’ Jazzmaster that x- Placebo drummer Robert Schultzberg very kindly sold to me, that finally cut it alongside my original 60’s Fender precision. We re-recorded all my programmed drums with ‘Louis The Drummer’ who played on Adele’s debut album and Danny Newell who plays for Muse was kind enough to come in and provide his magic on trumpet. I’m pretty pleased with the end result.’
----------

Intended as an introduction to the sound of Nick Jaguar this song is the first release from label BIG DIRTY ENGINE, a new boutique record label.
If this low key offering is wets your whistle, then you can look forward to hearing the rest of the songs on the forthcoming album due in 2010.

Track Name: Ride On
RIDE ON
I don't change
Those are my memories
But the landscapes re-arranged
There’s a
Wicked man
Eyes of bloodshot sand
He rides a railroad track
And a sickly kid
With cocktail lips
Drives an open top sudan

RIDE ON RIDE ON .....
So I do not resist
The panoscopic horizons of the Hollywood pharmacist
He's got
Pin up girl
From her airbrushed world
Reclined on a cigarette pack
She rides on
To a gas station sun
Blowing dust from her pink compact

RIDE ON .....

If you've been forsaken
And the wind is the only sound
But you got to make it
Or the only way is down,
so...
RIDE ON RIDE ON RIDE ...
