This joint Nightingales / Stewart Lee 7" kickstarts a lengthy campaign of reissues by Robert Lloyd's combo, The Nightingales from Call Of The Void and Fire Records, in the wake of the acclaimed documentary from Fire Films, King Rocker. Ten Bob Each Way / Use Your Loaf is released in conjunction with the airing of the long-awaited Michael Cumming-directed, Stewart Lee-written film, King Rocker, which tells the tale of Robert's markedly unique four-decade career in music.
Stewart Lee and Nick Pynn recorded Use Your Loaf in the attic of Brighton's beloved mini music café, Jane Bom-Bane's and was originally recorded for a mooted Nightingales tribute album. Ten Bob Each Way is a brand-new Nightingales recording, their first since recording the Four Against Fate album. It was recorded at Woodbine Street Studios, whose in-house producer, John Rivers, worked previously with Swell Maps and The Specials, among many others. A tale of work drudgery related through the tedium of recurring jokes "handed down like diseases", Use Your Loaf is the favourite of many 'gales fans and was widely praised by Mark E. Smith as "typically brilliant". Originally recorded as a single by The Nightingales way back in 1982, for Cherry Red Records. It was subsequently re-recorded for their debut album, Pigs On Purpose, which will be almost simultaneously reissued in deluxe expanded form through Call Of The Void.
