Morgan’s Shortlist #1

By on Wednesday, 3rd September 2008 at 7:34 am

Hailing from Folkestone, Nick Harrison combines his image of the missing Kook with catchy ska-inspired, Penate-esque numbers. With radio friendly tracks and the talent to match, Harrison is glory bound.

Fresh after playing the Underage Festival which capped off a series of gigs, and was perhaps the best indication of his potential, he’ll embrace the stage of XFM First Friday on 3rd October.

Though his album isn’t due until April next year, recently released Oi Rude Boy is already doing the rounds and receiving glorious reviews. Once you give it a listen, the quirky lyrics and playful guitar will stick for days on end.
