ED KUEPPER, founding member of Australian proto-punks, The Saints, musical pioneer with the equally incendiary Laughing Clowns, owner of some 18+ solo albums and the newest member of Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds hits the road again this August/September to present ‘Re-Arranged’. A show in two (human) parts.
Loosely described as “ambient-rockabilly”, the two-piece show sees Kuepper (acoustic guitar and vocals) and Mark Dawson (drums) reunited after a 20 year hiatus to present selections from their 1990 collaboration Today Wonder – featuring the Australian classic ‘Everything I’ve Got (Belong to You) – as well as material from Kueppers solo debut, Electrical Storm, alongside other Kuepper classics.
Evocative would be the catchphrase of this collection of Eds music. This is music to drive long distances to, the thrumming rhythms like tyres on the open road, the lyrics the kind of things your mind might wander to when your surroundings become numbing; desperate tales of love and longing. – March 2011 www.i94bar.com
Kuepper and Dawson will present this show over two sets with no support *. Don’t miss this rare opportunity.
