FRANK SPEAKER - LID OFF THE BOX'S Manager speaks:
"Ello, everyone. NICKSTIR writes every day, it can be: lyrics, songs, guitar pieces, piano, it pours out of him. Then we hear melodies, loops, rhythms on his drum pads and, it all sounds great to me. And... nothing ever gets out there! It's been like this for years.
So what 'appens? Why?
Everything gets filed... Not quite finished, not quite good enough, or polished enough for NICKSTIR, then he's creating something else! And he forgets what he's done - it's all out of sight out of mind in yet another computer file. He's got millions of computer files containing great ideas, songs, designs, art!
It drives me - and everyone else - crazy. I think he's scared of what people may say... We've got to break this.
I'VE GOT AN IDEA.
PUT OUT ANYTHING I CAN - DON'T TELL 'IM...
I'm going to put out whatever I can... and not tell 'im. Then he won't stop me, and he won't get upset or worry about it. You can't be afraid of what you don't know about nah can you?
(Sir Nick told me that)
It's Making Crazy Work, because he makes crazy and brilliant stuff. It's not that conventional round 'ere, that's for sure. But when you're in a war you've got to improvise - that's what Sir Nick told me as well - he's a wise guy, anyway.
So here's a song... Well, I've taken his lyrics and Roof Produced some music on Live. I'm like one of kids rapping, well almost! Enjoy and let's Free NICKSTIR.
NICKSTIR & CO
And I've been reading my book 'Get More Fans 2014.' And I read the big man Clive Davis's book and I saw him on Netflix. He's the Godfather of music.
I don't know if he was speaking to me in my dremas but... I'VE GOT AN IDEA. It came to me when I woke up this morning that we create 'an Imprint' of NICKSTIR & CO then we can feature everyone on it and NICKSTIR'S name gets out there.
Well it's a plan and it looks posh when it's put together - I think it's a breakthrough and it'll save me money on all our artists! Yeah... Well we'll see.
That's our mission - it's all about freedom. Maybe my putting his stuff out is a part of us all achieving that?
Anyway - enjoy it...
MONEY - Yeah now there's an issue for NICKSTIR. He's never made a successfull ongoing financial enterprise. He's never seen it. All I know is we got to get some money in or we're all done for. And it is currently Baked Beans & Beer for me and the boys... So I'll ask see charge for the single - so you can support us. Who knows - that might work!
