'NY' has been going down well in my solo sets in recent times and I enjoyed recording this version which 'skiffles' things up a fair bit, aided by the tremendous banjo playing and singing of Celine Donoghue and a first appearance on an NS & The Infomaniacs track by the brilliant Eivind Hodne on double bass.
Infomaniacs regular Deborah Cooper plays a blinder too on the recording, contributing mighty fine vocals and a range of percussion parts (including the first ever playing of 'the spoons' on one of my records)!
(EP / CD Version features three other tracks, 'The Girl Who's Never Satisfied', 'Countdown From Ten' and 'The Lookout Man').

The second NS & The Infomaniacs single was an old song of mine, written in my Goldenhour days and is probably my favourite Infomaniacs songs to date ..
There's quite a lot happening on this one and features the largest Infomaniacs line up so far, with ten people performing on this version... great memories of the first time I heard Raymond McGinley's excellent mix of the track which allowed everyone's fine performances to be heard perfectly on it.

Wrote a lot of the lyrics for this one whilst strumming my guitar in front of the telly watching Andy Murray win an epic five setter against Jurgen Melzer at the US Open in 2008..
When it was released as the debut NS & The Infomaniacs single a couple of years later the little bits of tennis terminology in the song inspired Eurosport to use the track in their 2010 US Open coverage in a segment featuring Andy Murray as it happens....
Joining me here in making some power pop sounds are the original Infomaniacs live line up of Dave Andrews (Guitar, Vocals), Neil Menzies (Bass Guitar), Deborah Cooper (Vocals, Percussion) and Reuben Millward (Drums) .
