One of the Voices of 2006 (Apparently)

Mrs CC came home the other week with Fires by Nerina Pallot purchased for 99p and still with the security thingy attached.
One of the by now obligatory stickers which are a bugger to peel off and make a mess of the jewel case proclaimed her as One of the Voices of 2006 according to the Guardian.
I'd never heard of her but a bit of research advises that this was a gold album with the single Everybody's Gone to War reaching number 14 in the UK charts. Then again, I would be hard pushed to name ,or indeed recognise, any single (or more realistically download) which has charted this Millennium.
Anyway I thought I would give it a listen and was pleasantly surprised to find that it is very good indeed.
Well worth checking out.

Nerina Pallot - Everybody's Gone To War

Nerina Pallot - Damascus

The sound on my PC is currently gubbed - can someone please confirm if these links are working


  1. Links are working. Never heard of Nerina Pallot but, judging from these two songs, it is really a good find. To tell the truth 'Everybody..' doesn't exactly sound new to my ears, who knows where and when I have listened to it before now.
    BTW I completely embrace your CC aestethic. I spent more time than I care to remember getting my fingers dirty in second-hand records shops back when I still had (more) time to listen to music.
    I like your blog a lot. Keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks for the positive feedback Luca
    Good to know that people can hear these tunes even if I can't!
