ED KUEPPER WITH JIM WHITE
Why didn't anyone think of this before?
Kuepper; the co-founder of 70s proto-punks The Saints, chief architect of the uncompromising Laughing Clowns and The Aints! and master songsmith over some 15+ solo albums, and White; the brilliant drummer of renowned instrumentalists Dirty Three, partner in the genre-defying Xylouris White and disciple of all things Ed. Together they will tackle 45 years worth of Kuepper catalogue with a twist that only these two game-changers could apply.
"Jim is one of the finest drummers I've seen and heard anywhere, totally gets inside of whatever he's playing in an unpredictable and exciting way, been wanting to work with him for a long while’’ - Ed Kuepper
"I learnt drums playing with Aretha Franklin and the Saints on my childhood home’s furniture. The Saints’ first three record, Laughing Clowns and Ed Kuepper’s solo work have been a huge inspiration for me in my drumming life and beyond, a well of inspiration I carry with me and can dip into at will.” - Jim White
The show(s) will coincide with a trio of retrospective releases from Kuepper covering his solo years, Laughing Clowns and The Aints! All titles will be released in limited amounts, on coloured vinyl and with select CD issues also. It’s the first is a series of reissued releases from Kuepper as he takes charge of his own legacy whilst continuing to move forward.
"I like how Ed Kuepper - like Lou Reed or Bob Dylan - doesn’t want to replay the hits as was and at the same time doesn’t pretend to not have a past nor a future. In working with the musicians they play with, they revisit their material in new and old ways as well as creating new material and its not a binary problem, an ethic that seems relevant to all things to me.” - Jim White
It will be Kuepper, Jim, but not as you know it…
“Ed Kuepper wrote suggesting we play and that’s why I’m writing this... I said yes and we will see what happens, see you there.” – Jim White
