Re: Nick Simper / WARHORSE


Interview with Nick Simper...
Conducted by Charlie Jeffreys, during the Good Old Boys recording session at Felden, Hertfordshire on 30th December 2005.
---------------------------------------------
CJ: Hi Nick. How long have the Good Old Boys been together, now that you're finally putting a few tracks down?

NS: (Laughing) I don't know, I haven't been counting actually… In various shapes and forms, since 1979. We started as Flying Fox, with myself, Pete Parks, Carlo Little… Frank Reid singing… just a bit of fun… then Frank Reid went off to Australia. James Royal took over; he went off to Australia. Ronnie Harwood took over, and then after Ronnie went, Alan came in. And I guess 20 years plus it's been more or less the same line-up, and we bought in another guitarist, Simon. Basically it's been the same line-up, must be for 15 years now I suppose… Hud's been with us about 10 years, so… Yeah, various people have come and gone but it's always been the nucleus of myself, Pete and Alan. So, yeah, we're still here - still rockin'.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: I gather you run it as a sort of part-time band to fill in the gaps with other things?

NS: Well yeah, I mean everybody's been doing different things. Let's face it, you've only got 2 places to play now: in the pubs or in the stadiums. Unless you've got any records, you're not gonna be playing in the stadiums! So we play anywhere that'll have us really. That's why everybody started in the business, or most people anyway. You know, because they wanna play, wanna perform. We're still able to do that, and people seem to like it, so we'll keep doing it as long as people want us.
---------------------------------------------
 
Engineer Dave Heyward hard at work.
CJ: This is the first time you've actually settled down in the studio, I believe, with the Good Old Boys - so is this gonna lead ultimately to a CD?

NS: We recorded when Carlo was in the band. When Alan first joined, we recorded 4 tracks which we used to sell at gigs (laughs) and then I s'pose… must be about… 5 or 6 years after that we did another 4 tracks and - yeah, just for our own amusement really, and for people to follow the band. It's the first time I suppose we've come in with serious intent you could say!

Who knows where it's gonna lead. We've always been saying, for a long time, we should do it before somebody dies, you know (laughter), and… yeah, that's how we got Warhorse back together again. Pete said, "Let's do a gig before somebody dies", and that was kind of the impetus behind it. Alan's been saying for ages, that we should record some stuff before one of us dies (more laughter)!
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Pete was saying earlier this year that, depending on how things worked out with Mac and others, that there might be some more action with Warhorse this year. Has that sort of fallen apart with this progress?

NS: Well no, the 2 didn't get in the way of one another. The whole problem with Warhorse is that certain people are never available. The will isn't there, for everybody to do it collectively. We did the comeback gig which was just for our own amusement and it went off so well… you weren't there, were you?

---------------------------------------------
 
Nick & Pete listen attentively to playbacks.

CJ: No, was that at Mac's party or…

NS: No, this was a couple of years ago, we did a couple of concerts and did it for our own fun you know. And then so many people showed up, enjoyed it and it went so well; we recorded it and we had quite a lot of interest. Agencies and people thought, well we could get back out on the road again, there is a demand for that sort of stuff and we immediately started writing and rehearsing. We had about half an album together and then Mac unfortunately… poor old Mac Poole, he contracted throat cancer, and it was pretty serious for a while. He's made a marvellous recovery, thank God, but it - completely halted the whole project, so we put it on the back burner. Since then, we've tried to resurrect it, but - we can just never all get together at the same time.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: You're scattered around the country as well, I guess…

NS: Yeah, we all live in different places, and everybody's… Mac's working 10 nights a week, Frank Wilson's working 10 nights a week, Pete's working 10… (laughter). There's not enough time, so it's a bit fallen by the wayside. We've had some interest from certain territories abroad to do concerts, whether we'll do it or not I don't know. Who knows?

So, it doesn't clash with this at all. We're just doing this for fun, a lot of people have liked it and we thought, maybe we should look at it a bit more seriously. Maybe take some photographs, get some stage clothes, record some stuff and maybe move up a level. I mean, the musicianship is good enough for it I think. I've worked with a lot of people, and they don't get any better than these guys.
---------------------------------------------
 
Hud, Nick & Alan definitely not hard at work.
CJ: Right. The tracks that you've chosen for this session: they're all from your regular Good Old Boys stage set…

NS: Yeah. We didn't particularly choose them. We just turned up at the studio and someone said, 'Oh, what're we gonna do', so… 'Oh, we'll have a crack at this'... 'Yeah, ok'… So it's not been specifically thought out, or aimed at any market. Obviously, first of all, we thought we'd get some tracks together just to play to people, and maybe do an EP sort of thing. But now, we're thinking, what the hell, we might as well do an album.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: So this EP with 4 tracks: 20 Flight, Crazy…

NS: Yeah, a couple of Cochran numbers, Same kind of crazy (Delbert McClinton)…
---------------------------------------------

Nick, Hud & yours truly Charlie. Not much work getting done.
CJ: My way…

NS: Yeah... What was the other one? Can't remember now! (Laughter)… 20 Flight Rock, My way, Same kind of crazy, Why me. That's Delbert McClinton as well. Yeah, it's a cross-section of good rockin' stuff, kind of fused with country stuff. That's what we like doing best. It's danceable… you can't really knock it, can you?
---------------------------------------------

CJ: So, this could be put about to the agents, to help with the bookings, to get a proper tour together maybe…?

NS: Of course, yeah.
---------------------------------------------

Re: Nick Simper / WARHORSE


cont...

Look carefully, one member of the band is working again!
CJ: You've had various individual gigs, but not a solid tour…

NS: No, we havent really taken it seriously enough to - elevate it onto the next level, but there's people out there that are doing it flat out. There's no reason why we couldn't do it as well. I figure it's just as good. Why not?
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Do you think these tracks, as an EP, will it build towards a full album that'll be available to the record-buying public in the coming year?

NS: Oh yeah. Yeah, when we get it finished! (Laughter). Yeah, we've done these 4 - the best part of it in 2 days. That's how recording should be. When we started off - now, you've got too many gizmos, that's the trouble, but when we started off you had no choice really - you had 2 track machines, then 4 track machines, and it was kind of everybody dive in and hope there's no mistakes. Lots of the mistakes had to be left in. Now, of course, you've got the advantage of being able to use the technology but we prefer to do it 'as live'. When you've been performing these numbers live it comes pretty easy really. Sometimes you get a bit of a shock, you find the bum notes you've been playing all these years are suddenly shown up, (laughter) or…
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Or the occasional lyric…

NS: Yeah, yeah, we found a few lyric problems… But no, I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be put out. A lot of my back catalogue's out there, still current on Angel Air. So maybe somebody like Angel Air would get the cover together, the artwork and stuff, and put it out. We don't know, we haven't really thought that far ahead yet. We just 'play it by ear', as they say!
---------------------------------------------
 
27a. Nick with 'Rupert'.
CJ: And on top of all this, you've got another project bubbling under, with a girl singer, and Pete Parks and a few others…

NS: Yeah, Pete's involved in this project, I don't know too much about it, really. Pete's been kind of raving about Adelle Kirk for a long time, quite a few other people have as well, and Pete said, "Would you fancy doing some gigs?" and I thought, well, why not? I've worked with girl singers before. I've worked with Billie Davis, and Marsha Hunt, no problems, so… We did one, we had a great drummer…
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Ivan?

NS: Yeah, Ivan. He was terrific. It was just a pick-up band, we never had any rehearsal. Pete put together Adelle and, er…
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Jim…

NS: Yeah, we got together with Jim Byers, they just got some chords together. I think it was a case of, Adelle had worked with young guys before and maybe they'd struggled to get it together and Pete had said, well I can get a bunch of guys…
---------------------------------------------

CJ: …with a bit of experience…

NS: …who can do it without any rehearsal even, you know. I think she was quite pleasantly surprised. We pitched up at this gig in Hendon, and - I'd only met her once, it was a scratch band with no rehearsal but it went down well, the crowd loved it. I think Adelle's got a great future. If we can help in any way, obviously we will.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: So this could be on-going for a little while, and see how it develops?

NS: Oh, yeah…Yeah. Everybody's doing different things, working with different people. Pete's playing with 3 or 4 different bands. Hud plays with different people… Nothing's cast in stone. If the time allows, then we'll do these things.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: What's the general sound/vibe on this new band?

NS: Well, most of the songs were quite well known… not exactly 'pop songs'… well some of 'em were pop songs… some of 'em were kinda standards…
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Blues, or rock 'n' roll standards?

NS: Material from Tina Turner, even U2… Things like that, things I've never played before.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: A little more contemporary?

NS: Yeah, a good mixture. The Chris Isaak song we did… what's that called, a big hit, I can't think of it now… It was kind of new territory for me. A lot of stuff I'd never even heard of. Pete just slung the chords in my direction and we did it.

I s'pose the way we play naturally made it a lot heavier than the songs were intended to be. I think that helps carry it at the gig and satisfies the customer…
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Get a bit of weight coming across?

NS: Yeah, and she's got a hell of a voice. She gets out there and kicks ar$e, she looks good, sounds good - what more could you want? I mean, there's a lot of people out there making millions without a fraction of her talent, so… there's room for one more, especially someone who's that good. So if we can help, maybe guide her in the right direction then we'll do that. But it's nice to work with somebody who's half your age! Less than half my age - more like a third of my age! (Laughter).
---------------------------------------------

CJ: And as good-lookin' as you, Nick!

NS: Yeah, there you go! (Laughter).
---------------------------------------------

CJ: OK, well good luck with that and we look forward to hearing about more gigs and so on with that project.

NS: OK.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Is there a name for the band?

NS: Not really, no. It was kind of a short notice thing. I had a couple of weeks notice from Pete. It's quite easy to do, because Pete works with so many diverse people, as you know, and his knowledge of songs is like an encyclopaedia really. Pete also has that ability to really kick it out without too much support for himself, he's so confident.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: He's very versatile…

NS: Exactly. Versatility, but he's confident and he doesn't need keyboards, or saxes or anything else behind him. He'll go out there and kick ar$e with a basic rhythm section behind him. That's what makes him so strong. You know, he's good.
---------------------------------------------

CJ: Well, it's good to hear what you're up to, and thanks for talking about it.

NS: 'Tis a pleasure!
---------------------------------------------
CJ: Cheers Nick.
