The band announced in May 2006 that Nicholson would miss the band’s forthcoming North America tour as he was suffering from “fatigue following an intensive period of touring”, and would be temporarily replaced by Nick O’Malley of The Dodgems while Nicholson recovered. However, on 20 June 2006, it was announced that he was no longer part of the band, with Alex Turner later stating “we sorta found ourselves in a situation where we wanted to move forward”. The band asked Nicholson to leave. Helders later remarked: “It’s not for everyone, the traveling, I suppose … He didn’t get specific. We didn’t want to drag all of that out of him … We took [Nick] out to America and we just couldn’t see going back to the way things were for whatever reason.”

Initially, Nicholson began making a name for himself in Sheffield as a DJ, mainly as a resident at Threads, but also performing at Reverend Soundsystem (under the name AndyGun). He also remixed a Reverend and The Makers song “You Get So Alone Sometimes it Just Makes Sense”. In November 2007 he made his DJ début in London at a club event called Threads vs Filthy Few.
In 2008 Nicholson formed Mongrel, which consisted of himself, Jon McClure of Reverend and the Makers, Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell and Matt Helders from Arctic Monkeys, as well as London rapper Lowkey from the Poisonous Poets. They released their first album, Better Than Heavy on 7 March 2009.

In August 2009 Nicholson joined ex-Milburn frontman Joe Carnall’s band The Book Club, but left later that year when, on 23 December Jon McClure announced via his Twitter account and official website that Nicholson would be made an official member of Reverend and the Makers. He remained in the group until their 2010 hiatus but when they reformed in January 2012 Nicholson was replaced by his friend and former band mate in The Book Club, Joe Carnall.
