Nigel of Bermondsey – Lonely Heart Attack

Release date: 19th July 2010 (Pure Mint)

Lonely Heart Attack is the first single to be taken from the new Nigel of Bermondsey album ‘London Dreamtime’. According to Nigel, the song was written when he was in an extremely bad mood… ‘it’s about breaking up and not making up and how you fantasise that you will be missed although you probably won’t be…’

The haunting B-side ‘You Are my Avatar’ (which you can hear on our SoundCloud page) evokes memories of the late, great Elliott Smith. This single will be available for digital download (from iTunes) from 12th July.

Nigel (Woolf-Hoyle) started his musical career as the bass player in Indie/Glam group Gay Dad in the late 20th century. After the band’s demise, Nigel dedicated himself to his own songwriting career; Nigel of Bermondsey was born, and his debut, self-titled album was released in 2008 to great acclaim. London Dreamtime, his second album, recorded in a small room just off the Walworth Road over a three month period in 2009.
