Artist: Imperial State Electric
Title: I Ain’t Gonna Be History
Label: Onslaught Of Steel
So it finally arrives, the 6th 7″-single from Nicke Andersson’s Imperial State Electric. Before anything else i must say that i love the cover, not so much the art of the cover but the fact how the cover is made, you see the fish wich holds the actual vinyl, i just love it when i get albums and singles that look a bit different. If you wanna see how the record look with the single in it, and the way the frontcover is shaped to hold the actual vinyl, you can click here.
The single have two cover songs, the A-side’s title track “I Ain’t Gonna Be History” originally by The Maniacs wich is a fast rock n roll tune wich is hard to not love, and as always when it comes to Nicke Andersson he makes it sound like his own song. On the B-side is the slower and not too exciting track “Wild Tales” originally by Graham Nash, this song is not that special i think so when i put this single on the turntable it is to enjoy the A-side, that for sure.
The single was released in a total of 500 copies, 100 on white vinyl and 400 on black vinyl. Sadly i missed out on the white vinyl but still glad i got hold of the black one, after all it’s the music that is important…. eventhough it’s so much sweeter to have the most limited edition!
Side A: I ain’t gonna be history
Side B: Wild tales
