Ed Kuepper takes to the stage with Jim White on Saturday 19 June at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi (NB June 5 show rescheduled).
Ed Kuepper, the co-founder of ’70’s proto-punks The Saints, chief architect of the uncompromising Laughing Clowns and The Aints! and master songsmith with over 15 solo albums; and Jim White, the brilliant drummer of renowned instrumentalists Dirty Three, a 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.
Ed says of Jim: “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.”
And Jim of Ed: “I learnt drums playing with Aretha Franklin and the Saints on my childhood home’s furniture. The Saints’ first three records, 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.”
The show will coincide with a trio of retrospective releases from Kuepper covering his solo years, Laughing Clowns and The Aints!
