TUNE Fabyl - Nick Faber - 'Sensational'
After ‘Highway to the Stars’ aimed to get your motor running, the next funk-rock anecdote of Nick Faber (Hightower Set, John Turrell, Appelseed, Lakuta), gleaned from ‘The Lost Highway Tapes’, has him writing in tandem with the vocalist Rufus Stone. “The guitar is me and the blues harp (harmonica) is Rufus. He was busking outside Charing Cross station, and his wailing harmonica got me hooked. Once we’d tried him out on a couple of more straight ahead blues tracks we began writing, and this was the result”. Armed with appealing groove and gusto, ‘Sensational’ is complemented by artwork from distinguished illustrator Dan Lish, whose pen game has blessed many a hip-hop figurehead.
