The story behind Nobody

"I wrote Nobody really quickly on the piano knowing we had a pre-production rehearsal with the full band the next night," says Greg. "I sang it falsetto on the demo, knew there was something there, but wasn't quite sure what I had. Next night we worked on it for an hour band and turned this little song into this big, slinky monster. Out of all the tracks on Forget the Past this is the one we took into the studio not really knowing how it'd go. Tracking day Wayne brought in this great drum loop, I fluked a falsetto backing part, bass player Mark Hughes pulled out an earth-shattering bass sound and we were off. Hardly any words in this one - which I love - it's all about the groove. The highest compliment came when someone came into the studio and said - "It sounds like the SOS Band's Just Be Good To Me!" Yeah!"

Go to  to hear - Nobody - from Greg's new album which is to be released 28th March. While you're there vote for it, and vote it up the NZ wildcard charts (it's already in the top ten).

Go here to pledge and pre-order one of a very limited number of cd copies of Forget the Past
