Free ep from the Nextmen, features Fat Freddys Drop singer Joe Dukie, previously unreleased, out today. Sounds pretty tasty...
From Bestiblog: "The Nextmen are releasing a free EP 'Blow Wind Blow - The Unreleased Sessions'... The tracks were created during FFD's first trip to UK shores but subsequently left untouched in the digi-vaults for the past decade. Rediscovered during a recent studio spring clean, the duo have decided to gift these tracks to supporters of The Nextmen and Joe Dukie in the gap between long players. Stream 'Blow Wind Blow' exclusively below and download the full EP for free on Friday via thenextmen.com."

The trio met during Freddy's first trip to London & with just four days in a front room to record, the boys enlisted band mates Toby Laing & Joe Lindsay on horns, along with the lyrical endeavours of Hamish Clark from Breaks Co-op to forge what would become something very special. The result was simply stunning, but like the path much trodden, the label folded, the record was never released & the DAT tapes lay undiscovered in a dusty archive until now...."
