Video Of The Day: Nikki Sudden – “Up There In Heaven”

Nikki Sudden has always been a favorite artist of mine. Similar to Tyla of the Dogs d’Amour, he had adopted a laid back, romantic, pirate/gypsy style and his music is very reminiscent of the Faces & early 70’s Stones. Sudden made numerous albums and had some side projects, including the Jacobites and his prior band, the post-punk Swell Maps.
Sudden died from a heart attack in his hotel room in 2006 after a gig in NYC.
Here is favorite track of mine from the album “The Last Bandit: The Best of Nikki Sudden”

Hope your up there somewhere in heaven Nikki, wearing silk scarves and a glass of wine in hand.

Exiled New Englander now living in Canada. I dream in Spanish but can't speak it. I wish I'd grown up as an old black man playin' the blues just like my father.
