And yet another Strokes side project….

Following hard on the tail of Fab Moretti’s excellent Little Joy, his partner in the Strokes rhythm section Nikolai Fraiture has decided to get in on the act. Going under the Nickel Eye (see what he did there), the project is a collaboration with UK band South as well as featuring guest spots from Regina Spektor and Nick Zinner of Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs.

The album ‘The Time Of Assassins’ is due on Rykodisc at the end of this month and with a US tour already underway that Strokes comeback looks to be just as unlikely as ever.
