Ed Kuepper - Electrical Storm (Limited Silver Coloured Vinyl)Out of print on vinyl for 35 years, Ed’s debut album under his own name, originally released in 1985, launching his solo career. A brooding statement of intent.
Kuepper’s work with The Saints in the 70s pre-empted The Clash, The Damned and The Sex Pistols, announcing the advent of punk, (despite Kuepper steadfastly maintaining a cautious distance from that scene.) Through the early 80s he ventured into new musical territory with Laughing Clowns.
Fans include Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, Bill Callahan and Radio Birdman’s Deniz Tek. Since 1985 Ed Kuepper has released over 20 studio albums under his own name, winning two ARIA Awards along the way. It’s an unequalled catalogue of work: idiosyncratic, forward-moving, always searching.
