Nowhere To Go But Everywhere was written on a cross country road trip in the wake of Ryan’s divorce, creating a deeply personal connection with the songs. Wicked Cool Records is owned by Stevie Van Zandt (E Street Band, Sopranos, Disciples Of Soul).

The chorus to the title track here rather lends itself to reverie. “This is the sound of remembering” sings Ryan Hamilton on the first record from his Harlequin Ghosts. So, forgive the trip down memory lane, but reason number 2134 why music was better when I was a kid, is this.

On a Wednesday, Kerrang would come out and me and my mate, we’d pour over the reviews. We’d pick out stuff that we’d save our money for based on what was said and who said it (if it was Morat, Dave Ling, Ray Zell, Malcolm Dome, Mick Wall, or Steve Beebee, we were especially keen).

One day, there was a review of a single called “Golden Skin” by Silver Sun that caught my eye. The following Saturday, I was in Tempest Records in Birmingham, buying the two versions of it.
