Answering machines. Taco Bell. Long Island. The Gas Station on Avenue B. Band members switching instruments for almost every song. These are things that come up in my head when I think of Nilla. Nilla were a young, fun, messy and silly-yet-serious guitar band that played in NYC in the mid-’90s. They came into the studio where I worked then (Spa Recording) and we did an late night marathon session, recording a few songs for a cassette release, including “Say Goodbye” that was also released on a compilation titled Compilation Shmompilation (Red Room Records 1995).
I just pulled a My Favorite track off this comp for an upcoming collection of their material I’ll be mastering and had to listen to “Say Goodbye” about 5 times in a row to keep the smile on my face.
