About Nic Armstrong & The Theives

Nic Armstrong

"I just buzzed off him. I used to listen to him all the time...
It made me think, f*ck, I wanna to do tunes a bit like that!" 

- Miles Kane on Nic Armstrong


Nic Armstrong, originally from the UK and now based in the US, released his debut album, Greatest White Liar in 2004. Produced by Liam Watson and recorded at Toe-Rag Studios in London, the album featured tracks all written and performed by Nic Armstrong plus a cover of The Rolling Stones' Down Home Girl. Nic performed all instruments on the record - from guitars through to "half a sitar" - with drums played by Jonny Aitken. After the album was released to critical acclaim, Nic put together a band, The Theives and Greatest White Liar was re-released in 2005, under Nic Armstrong & The Thieves to illustrate that Nic's live show would feature the full band. 

Tours supporting Oasis, Paul Weller, The Pretenders and The Jeevas soon followed, leading Noel Gallagher to comment, "If they get thier hair cut, they'll be one of the biggest bands in Britain. They're pretty special, man!" The video for Broken Mouth Blues was directed by Duncan Jones, the director of Moon and Source Code.

The Pocketless Shirt EP, a new 6 track EP was released in November 2013 on download and limited edition vinyl. Negative Slant EP is a follow up to this, due for release on download in November 2015.
