Biography

(1991 – 1994)

1) Nice is an incorrect tag for the band The Nice, an English band. Please correct your tags.

2) Nice was an band which formed in 1991. The band was fronted by Randall Lee formerly of The Cannanes and later of Ashtray Boy on vocals and guitar; Susannah Stewart-Lindsay, previously a member of the Adelaide based band, Rewind on the Paranoid Side, on guitar; and Jo Packer on drums. Francesca Bussey, later a member of The Cannanes, was a member of Nice on bass guitar during the recording sessions for their first album, “Nice” (1992), but left during production and was credited only as a guest. Bussey was replaced on bass guitar by Mark King. The band split up in 1994.

Allmusic’s Nitsuh Abebe felt that “Nice”, which was issued by United States label, Feel Good All Over, showed that “Lee’s sounds absolutely stunning, and while the record’s songwriting isn’t as consistent as one might hope, the majority of it works incredibly well, with unconventional time signatures and progressions keeping things from falling into strummy banality”. “Dear John”, which was the lead track on Nice, was covered by the band Aden. The band’s songs “Theme from Nice” and “Circuit Diagram” from their 1993 album, “Apple Pie”, were included in the popular 1990s Nickelodeon show “The Adventures of Pete & Pete”. Abebe described “Apple Pie” as “a step toward the more varied sound” of Lee’s future work with Ashtray Boy.

    I don't think that Randall Lee with those "shambling" (and unknown) Nice from New Zealand are more important in Music History than Keith Emerson's Nice. Maybe someone has to promote his record, here.

    Hier werden 2 verschiedene Bands zusammengewürfelt. Ein Teil der Songs ist nicht von Keith Emersons The Nice!
