Hey... I seen your face airbrushed on the side of a van, With the words below "She destroys man" I believe you can... And all these skulls in here They just wanna forget They think you're just some c-c-c-cold pleatherette That they never met I don't think this will go right I still like to roll the dice I need a name To assign the blame Hey Nancy! Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-Nancy! Do you hear that baby? They're playing our song - it's an air-raid siren, It's a mating call... Soon they'll be dropping bombs Well I almost Yes I nearly I was about to But I couldn't speak clearly to Nancy Yes I stuttered Then I stammered I'm just banging two rocks together Trying to start a fire with Nancy Nah-nah-nah Nancy yeah Nah-nah-nah Nancy yeah Nah-nah-nah Nancy yeah Nah-nah-nah Nancy yeah Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-Nancy!


‘Almost Nearly Nancy’, a yarn of unrequited love on the edge of an apocalypse, is a bouncy two and one-half minute slice of protopunk that has western edge and a classic feel. The tune was recorded back in 2019 with producer Mike Mariconda at Sol de Sant Studio in Barcelona and finishing touches were recently applied in Texas.

The provocative cover art (originally a 2 x 3 foot multi-media piece) was done by on-again, off-again Hickoids guitarist Tom Rowsey who passed away in March 2020 at the age of 56. It is a statement of defiance in a world gone awry and beyond the subject’s control.
