American Bandages - (1984,2002)

American Bandages is an album of American rock classics as interpreted by Nash. He enlisted the help of his former FM collaborators Cameron Hawkins (keyboards) and Martin Deller (drums), and the album was released in 1984. The album was aimed at the US market, but due to distribution and management problems, including a change in record labels (to MCA, after Quality Records folded in 1985), it never got the exposure Nash thought it deserved. For all it's rock'n'roll flash, the music is still alive with chittering oddities and sneaky synthi-shorts. The up-front drum programs put a commanding final touch to it all. Expertly crafted gut-gripping stuff.
