blame it on Shake June 26, 2009

Shouts to OnSMASH on the world premiere…

R.A.R.E. (Reliving A Real Experience) is the latest and most introspective project from Richmond, VA artist Nickelus F. It’s a passion project that delves into Nick’s thoughts about his career, life & music.

Nickelus F gives new life to Portishead’s classic material on this project without taking away from the original mean and sound of Portishead’s production and lyrics.

R.A.R.E. (Reliving A Real Experience) is also a lead into more original work with Portishead that will surface in Fall/Winter 2009. Nickelus F & his band Silverust are working on music with Portishead front man Geoff Borrow that will be released in the UK and of course can be found online.
