Nigel "Twist" Phillips features on the upcoming New American Farmers album "The Farmacology Sessions" which will be released on October 14th. Twist appears on one track, a cover of "Rain In The Summertime".
New American Farmers are the duo of Paul Knowles and Nicole Storto and "the Farmacology Sessions" is their second album together under that name. Also appearing on the album is Kevin T.White who is bassist in Chuck Prophet's Mission Express while Prophet himself also guests on selected tracks. It is through Kevin that Nigel came to play on the album when the pair struck up a conversation on the street when Nigel saw Kevins gig bag. Upon returning to the studio Kevin told of the encounter he had just had which leading Paul to recall his time supporting The Alarm in Champaign, IL in the 80s and how much he loved the band.
Nigel came by, jammed and even did some shows. When asked about the idea of covering "Rain In The Summertime" he replied "Lets do it"! Paul says "he's a great as he ever was, an awesome guy to play shows and hang out with. Such a nice, warm personality."
