“The Nightmare Of J.B. Stanislas” could be the last cursed disc in history. Now that it's celebrating the 40th anniversary of its release, we can also celebrate the fact that Nick Garrie, the disc's author, has finally begun to receive all the recognition he deserves. First, through those album tributes that the Scottish music scene toasted him with, which got together with him to help him record “49 Arlington Gardens”, his last album, which was released in 2008, with Duglas T. Stewart (BMX BANDITS), Norman Blake (TEENAGE FUNCLUB) and Ally Kerr, among many others. But also because so many artists have raised their voices to call attention to one of the most interesting, as well as one of the most unfairly forgotten songwriters of the last century. Which is how CAMERA OBSCURA recruited him to open their London concert in Shepherd's Bush Empire in the biggest way possible, and why musicians like Gary Olson of LADYBUG TRANSISTOR, the very Tracyanne Campbell, PYGMY and Guille Milkyway (LA CASA AZUL), have expressed their deepest admiration for this British singer-songwriter, whose fame reaches from Japan to the United States, where the elegies have been unstoppable. Stanislas will finally see the light after 40 years of darkness, and the news is spreading like wildfire.

It was compared by critics, a posteriori, with other historical discs from that era like “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band” by THE BEATLES and “Smile” by THE BEACH BOYS.

This Digital Single contents “The Cuts”, three lost tracks from the “The Nightmare Of J.B. Stanislas” era that were never recorded or released, plus a cover version of “Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)”, one of Nick's mother's favorite songs, that Nick recorded for the occasion in Glasgow's “Riverside” studios with the collaboration of the Scottish super team, headed by Duglas T. Stewart and Duncan Cameron as the sound engineer (DELGADOS, TRAVIS, TRASHCAN SINATRAS). A fifth song finishes “The Cuts”, the precious and bare “Josefina”, recorded in French, this time again in Portugal, this past April, 2009.

Track Name: Seashore
You came running cross the seashore
Hair was drifting with the tide
Eyes so gentle on the seashore
Nothing left but go and hide
On the seashore, on the seashore
 
Touched my fingers in the water
Kissed my lips with salt most true
No one near us for a life time
May I whisper I love you
On the seashore, on the seashore
 
Figure standing on the mountain
All alone like man on earth
I could see the smile so clearly
 Drifting seagull from my birth
On the seashore, on the seashore
 
Now I run across the seashore
All alone yes it must be
Wind’s so fine across my forehead
Lost my love across the sea
On the seashore, on the seashore
Track Name: Josefina
Le temps le temps le temps le temps le temps s’enfuit
Et moi je chante chante chante soleil de nuit
Ah Josefina, Josefina
Seins de bronze cheveux en or Josefina
Tes dents sont des perles qui viennent de la plus profonde
Des mers

Va va va vers elle
Jamais tu ne l’attrapera
Jambes de gazelle, tu es belle belle belle
Josefina
 
Des gens sont venus pour me prendre Josefina
Et  j’ai repondu que personne ne prend Josefina
Josefina vit partout
Josefina ces’t moi et vous
Et moi je chante soleil de nuit
Josefina

Va va va vers elle
Jamais tu ne l’attrapera
Jambes de gazelle, tu es belle belle belle
Josefina
Track Name: St. Tropez Whore
Mid a crowd of people, elegantly dressed
Stands our little lady, aspiring to the very best
 
Cos she’s the St. Tropez whore
And if your heart is sore
You can always turn to her to calm the pain
Oh she’s the St. Tropez whore
And she always wants more
So please don’t leave her standing in the rain

Don’t think you will recognize her as she walks the street
She’s no worse than all the rest
Silver sandles on her feet

Cos she’s the St. Tropez whore
And if your heart is sore
You can always turn to her to calm the pain
Oh she’s the St. Tropez whore
And she always wants more
So please don’t leave her standing in the rain
 
Though her eyes are rather weary her waist is not so slim
Her hair hangs down in golden tresses
Lips as fresh as early spring

Oh she’s the St. Tropez whore
And if your heart is sore
You can always turn to her to calm the pain
Oh she’s the St. Tropez whore
And she always wants more
So please dont leave her standing in the rain
In the rain

In fact the only difference
Between her and the rest
Is that she’s more ambitious and she wants more than the best

Cos she’s the St. Tropez whore
And if your heart is sore
You can always turn to her to calm the pain
Oh she’s the St. Tropez whore
And she always wants more
So please don’t leave her standing in the rain
In the rain
Track Name: Three Old Men
Old mens’ faces blinking drinking softly into the falling light
Still beat time on wooden floors
Criticize our country’s laws
 
I’ll see you after the war or was it the game
I’ve seen your face before
At Lords a long long time ago
You got the highest score
 
Seated round the wooden table
Talk to you as long as I am able
Bessie James and motor cars
Cliff erosion calomine lotion

I’ll see you after the war or was it the game
I’ve seen your face before
At Lords a long long time ago
You got the highest score
 
Three old faces we maybe
Dirty seen twice thirty
She was tall and she was strong
I was small and I was wrong
 
I’ll see you after the war or was it the game
I’ve seen your face before
At Lords a long long time ago
You got the highest score

I’ll see you after the war or was it the game
I’ve seen your face before
At Lords a long long time ago
You got the highest score
