THE ERIC NOBLE ANTHOLOGY
Over the years, The Duke has heard some fine music, is what,
but none of it has been anywhere near as glorious as the work
of Eric Noble, either solo, or as frontman for The Guerrilla
Catholics. Here, for the first time, is the complete Eric Noble
Anthology, free for download. From hit single Herring On A
Tuesday, to his collaboration with The Proclaimers, to a
selection of never before heard Outtakes from The Real Eric
Noble, the award-winning BBC radio documentary, this Anthology
is probably the only music you’ll ever need to hear, up to and
including stuff by The Beatles and so on.
Enjoy, friends. Just right click the titles and choose “Save
As…”, or, alternatively, left click and listen online.
Eric Noble – The Anthology
Exclusive To Mondo Irlando
1. Ode To Derren Brown.mp3
2. Broken Record Blues.mp3
3. 4AM Constipation Blues.mp3
Ode To Derren Brown is, of course, the majestic hit single,
paying affectionate homage to Eric Noble’s favourite mind-
control magician. Broken Record and Constipation are both from
the same sessions, although they were intended for an all-blues
album, Heaven Knows I’m Feeling Slightly Nauseous.
4. The Little Bird.mp3
5. This Martian Says Sorry.mp3
These tracks, both from the Sandie’s Lost Mackerel sessions,
illustrate the pain Noble endured following his well-publicised
divorce. Interesting, both songs are written from the
perspective of an “outsider”, being a small sparrow and a
6. A Trip To The Zoo.mp3
7. Saturday Night.mp3
Both these tracks stem from collaborations with other artists,
namely The Cure and The Proclaimers, respectively. Saturday
Night, in particular, has gone on to achieve widespread fame as
the track used for Bacardi Breezer commercials.
8. Wanna Git Wit You.mp3
This track was originally intended for N-Sync, until Eric
decided it was too good for them. It remained unreleased, until
9. Titanic Medley.mp3
This was originally intended to accompany the finale of James
Cameron’s Titanic. The piece comprises of two smaller
compositions, My Lungs Are Closing In (Yet My Love For You
Breathes Free), and Ode To Kate Winslet. In the end, Cameron
opted for some fiddles, tin whistles, and Celine Dion.
10. Some Advice.mp3
11. Boy, You’re Becoming A Man.mp3
Issued as a limited 7” single, these tracks have gone on to
become known as “The Eric Gets Educationalist Sessions”.
Exchanging hands for the price of a bladder in many online
auctions, they can now be experienced afresh.
12. I Know I Said I Loved You.mp3
In stark contrast to Little Bird and Martian, this track finds
Eric looking back on a relationship and definitely refusing to
feel upset at its passing. Possibly the single greatest
achievement of Noble’s career.
13. Herring On A Tuesday (demo).mp3
14. Radio Outtakes.mp3
Finally, two selections from the award-winning The Real Eric
Noble radio documentary production. The Herring demo is of
particular note, in that it has more lyrics than the version
which would eventually top the UK charts. The outtakes
selection consists of several tracks recorded in part for the
programme. Ode To Buffy and Frankie The Ape Boy make their
first known appearances here.
