Product Overview

Mercedes : Nailed

Product:

Mercedes : Nailed

For about 12 seconds this sounded just like the [a]Tindersticks[/a]

with a

young lady singing instead of [a]Bryan Ferry[/a] through a wah-wah

pedal.

Only for about 12 seconds, mind.

When ‘Nailed‘ eventually crawls into its fitful pace, it’s a fittingly mournful, minor-chord Sundays single with a singer

who

sounds a bit like Sheryl Crow. This is a fairly good thing,

by the

way.

Lovers of background information might like to know that Mercedes are three men and a little lady from Hartlepool, a town where, as they hate to be reminded, during the Napoleonic wars the local citizenry tried and hung a monkey thinking it was a French spy. Death threats to the usual address.
