Vincent Nifigance

Sent in by Seth Gadman: Vincent Nifigance is the recording name of an unknown independent musician based in Manchester, England, recording somewhat abstract and whimsical songs with a sometimes scatological, but undeniably melodic-bent on low grade instruments and recording equipment. His earliest output surfaced in 2006 and was received warmly, featuring on now defunct Internet Radio Show The DIY Chart Show broadcast from Brno in the Czech Republic, and also on Largehearted Boy. His debut release The Shambolic Fuzz-Pop ExtraOrdinary was released via the distribution arm of New York’s ’Olive Juice Music’ record label in May of 2007. Working primarily in and around his home he is seen to be most active on his blog. He was initially associated with Manchester’s underground/alternative gay scene, playing his first, and at the time of writing, only performance, at one of the Kaffequeeria collective’s monthly events supporting transgender country singer Rae Spoon, at ‘The Basement’ on Lever Street, Manchester City Centre, England, in October of 2006. He was then linked with New York’s continuing ‘Anti-Folk’ movement (perhaps owing solely to his association with Olive Juice Music , who boast output from artists such as Dufus, Prewar Yardsale, and founder Major Matt Mason USA ), although he himself seems loathe to pledge allegiance to any particular scene. During 2008 he was rumoured to be working on a potentially grander scale than previously, on an ironic concept album entitled: The So-F*%king Sophoclean Sophomoronic Pretension The follow-up finally appeared in January ‘09, with its delay explained by its new title: The Self Fulfilling Secondary Stumbling Prophecy, and described by Major Matt Mason USA as having “A slightly more cinematic, whispery, rock opera slant…” than his debut. In 2009 he contributed to two covers albums, for which he recorded versions of Falling For You & Superfriend for a tribute to Weezer’s cult Pinkerton album on CLLCT , and Helter Skelter for inclusion on a Christmas-released complete compilation of The Beatles’ eponymous or The White Album released via Elephant 6 Townhall called The White (Christmas) Album. The same year, he curated the fourth in a series of compilations given away free through kittyNATION, where he appeared alongside Major Matt Mason USA, Schwervon!, The Elastic No-No Band, and hero R. Stevie Moore, among others. 2010 saw the release of what is believed to mark the end of this initial phase of his recording career with: The Seemingly Final Extraneously Titled Album.
