About this item

Nick The Knife re-established Nick as a solo artist after Rockpiles final album (and the only one issued under the groups name!) Seconds of Pleasure.

The release comes with 3 previously unavailable tracks that featured on both the CD and the bonus 7” single that comes with the LP.

Rockpiles Terry Williams and Billy Bremner made contributions, but Nick also transitioned towards his new band Noise to Go by bringing back old friend Bobby Irwin, introducing bassist James Eller and Paul Carrack.

The album features Nicks version of Heart (Bremner had sung it on the Rockpile album) as well as an eclectic survey of pop music styles from power pop to doo-wop. My Heart Hurts, penned with then-wife Carlene Carter, was the lead single. This reissue includes demo versions of Heart and Raining, Raining as well as the rarity (recorded around the same time) I Got a Job.


Andy says: Nick's first album after Rockpile split up features the excellent "Too Many Teardrops".
