Corduroy arrived on the Acid Jazz scene in early 1992. Self-styled as the Fabric Four, they cut a striking presence with their soundtrack for the beatific generation. Their trilogy of albums on Acid Jazz Records, “Dad Man Cat”, “High Havoc” and “Out Of Here” drew on their unifying love of 60s and 70s TV themes and film soundtracks. Corduroy supported Blur, Pulp and Supergrass at Alexandra Palace in 1994 at the height of the Brit-Pop scene. The same year they were voted second best live act of 1994 in Melody Maker.
Corduroy were formed by Scott & Ben Addison from the remnants of art-yob band Boys Wonder along with ex-Doctor and the Medics bassist Richard Searle and Jazz guitarist Simon Nelson-Smith. Their new album “Winky Wagon” is out soon.
Nick Corbin spent 2018 in good company, touring with the likes of The Milk, Stone Foundation and The Spitfires as well as opening for Mavis Staples at London’s iconic Union Chapel and for Tom Odell at three Pub in the Park festivals.
Many of Nick’s songs have a strong social conscience, although he is just as comfortable singing whimsical ballads as he is commenting on the trials and tribulations of the UK government.
Expect an eclectic set of hard-hitting, soulful tunes with a distinctly British edge.
