Niadem's Ghost biography
Formed in the Summer of 1985, NIADEM'S GHOST were comprised of Dave Bennett (guitars), Brian Grantham (drums), Peter Nicholls (vocals) and Dave Tompkins (bass). Previously Peter had spent three years as the singer with IQ, with whom he recorded three albums, "Tales From The Lush Attic", "The Wake" and "Living Proof", and Brian had been the drummer with notorious punk band SLAUGERS AND THE DOGS.

Combining the original album tracks with the three tracks from "Thirst", it represents the complete recorded works of NIADEM'S GHOST. The music is a bit more light-weight than IQ but still better than the music that IQ made while Peter was gone. It is important to note that this is not IQ, although at times their sound mostly due to his voice does remind you of IQ. Well...not quite.

3 stars I bought this album years ago after reading James Unger's (loserboy) thoughts on it, even though he rated it at only 2 stars.The attraction was that the vocalist here is IQ's Peter Nicholls. Peter had left IQ after their second album "The Wake" and formed this band which is more commercial sounding but in my opinion really good.They remind me a little of THE CHURCH from around this same period.They released this album in 1986 and an EP called "Thirst" the following year but they couldn't get signed to a record deal so they folded the tent.Too bad in a way because the 3 song EP which is included here as bonus tracks is excellent. Let's face it though it seems Peter and IQ were just mean't to be together and I for one am glad he's still their singer even to this day with their latest album "Frequency". All the lyrics on this album were written by Peter Nicholls.

"Child Bride" is my favourite tune, I really like the jangly guitar style and tone here. Vocals at 1 1/2 minutes. "Little Giants" has this relentless bass that I like but overall i'm not a big fan of this one. "The Rage" is better. Man this reminds me of IQ but i'm sure it's just the vocals. I like the guitar after 1 1/2 minutes and again later at 3 minutes. "Wild Weather In Shallow Waters" is darker with theatrical vocals from Peter. It picks up 1 1/2 minutes in. Nice. An intense track. "High Wide And Handsome" kicks into a higher gear 1 1/2 minutes in as contrasts continue. "The Twilight World Of Mr Peach" is such a catchy tune that makes my head bob a lot.

"Strange Parade" is the proggiest and longest tune at 7 1/2 minutes.The tempo and mood changes several times. The next three songs are bonus tracks from the EP "Thirst". "Never Again" sounds so good to start with the bass, drums and guitar. The vocals join in quickly. Good song. "Slashback" is also very good with the guitar and rhythm impressing me a lot. Especially after 4 1/2 minutes to the end when the vocals have stopped. "Endless Times" sounds great to start as it builds then settles in. Vocals come in and they're reserved. This is good, especially the guitar style and prominant bass.

Well i'm the first one on this site to give this 3 stars, the rest have given 1 or 2 stars.That probably is all you need to know (haha). If I wasn't such a fan of Peter and THE CHURCH from around this time, I too might have given this 2 stars. I actually enjoy this album quite a bit, in fact take out tracks 2 and 6 and i'd give this 4 stars. But then I like the PSYCHEDELIC FURS as well. Just saying.

2 stars There's something went wrong with Peter in that time. Put aside Prog issue - this is not Prog, this is Pop/Rock in U2/REM/put another name-vein - I mean his wonderful voice...hardly bearable here and reminding me of German copycats CHANDELEIR. Not recommended even if you're IQ fan - personally I found here only few songs worth checking (again not in a Prog sense) and they were bonuses. Weird addition to my mostly Prog collection - poorly recorded and produced average Pop-Rock with rather bad example of Peter Nicholls' vocals. OK, let this thing lie in my archives.

2 stars NIADEM'S GHOST probably fits better on someone's alternative music website but because I am such a Peter Nicholls fan, I had to give it a plug. For those out there like me who love the voice of Mr. Nicholls would adore this recording. NIADEM'S GHOST was a short lived project that Peter spearheaded after leaving IQ for a wee while. This music although has many sounds does fit somewhere in the vein of Numan, Japan and Psychedelic Furs with the real twist being the voice of Peter Nicholls. It is importanat to note that this is not IQ, although at times their sound mostly due to his voice does remind you of IQ. Overall I like this CD a lot for some strange reason and amongst all of the prog recordings I have, I still make room for a little NIADEM'S GHOST.

Review by Tonny Larz

2 stars Even though Peter Nicholls (of IQ fame) is here in the frontseat. This is NOT a record to write home about. Actually i think its a pretty weak album...ok..there are some nice songs...but the overall view..is quite...ahem....ordinary. So why am i wasting my time? Why am i wasting your time?? Well, i love listening to every album that comes my way. And now you know.....if this is really you. File under: Ordinary Rock/Pop. Completists only !!!!
