"As young teen growing up in suburban Perth, I stumbled across Nick through old copies of Mojo magazine my uncle gave me at Christmas time. Nick had an acne pitted oval face with heavy set brown eyes and long hair that hung like a curtain over his face. He liked suits. I liked suits. He looked weird. I looked weird.
 
His songs where the warped, crooked versions of songs I was already listening to in my parents pop centric record collection. Nick was not pop. He was more accessible, more vulnerable, more connected. His music transported me from the weird looking outsider, to the insider of a whole new artistic world. He's music is one of the most lasting saviours in my life. Interpreting his song Poor Boy for Mojo was a full circle moment for me
." - Simon Okely, Slow Dancer

Listen to Slow Dancer’s exceptional cover of 'Poor Boy' by Nick Drake exclusively via Stereogum. The inimitable Angie McMahon lent her vocal prowess to the track.
