March 2017 sees the release of Mark Nevin’s 5th solo album My Unfashionable Opinion. Co-produced with his former Fairground Attraction bandmate Simon Edwards and engineered and mixed by the mighty Phill Brown (Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Talk Talk), it features 12 brand new Mark Nevin songs. With the basic tracks recorded live to 16 track analogue tape over 4 days at north London’s Livingston Studios, it was mixed at The Red Room in Bermondsey.
Most of the songs stick to the core band of Roger Beaujolais on vibraphone and marimba, Simon Edwards on bass and Richard Marcangelo on drums, with the addition of the inspired Hammond organ of James Hallawell. The great Kick Horns bring their brass magic to a couple before Colette O’Leary and Louise Nevin add a little accordion and fiddle to the final song.
On stage with his brilliant band, Nevin is a story teller, with a live show that draws on an enviable catalogue of songs, and as he knows – a great song never goes out of fashion!
