"I've just come from Youtube were the first thing up of Nick's was Pink
Moon. If anyone doesn't think that he's singing that a song in a manufactured voice that doesn't bear any resemblance to his environment/background then I'm flabbergasted!"

prepare to be flabbergasted. he's singing in a posh english accent. if that's a "manufactured voice", I'm curious to know what template setting the factory is using. who do you think he sounds like there? Mick Jagger? Bert Jansch? Bob Dylan?

the only thing I can hear that sounds like a recognisable influence from his time, is the slightly Donovan-esque way he enunciates the "k" on the end of "pink" (so it sounds a bit like "pinka").
