exploding edThe forever prolific Ed Kuepper is celebrating 45 years as a recording artist with three retrospective releases spanning a large chunk of his post-Saints musical output.

“Ed Kuepper - Singles ’86 ‘ ’96” will compile every solo A side from that period on vinyl and CDs, the latter format featuring a bonus disc of B sides and obscurities. Surprisingly, it’s Kuepper’s first collection of 45s and CD singles.

“Golden Days // When Giants Walked the Earth” will be a vinyl collection of Kuepper’s immediate post-Saints band, Laughing Clowns, who pushed the boundaries not just of conventional music but of the post-punk world. The classic “Eternally Yours” is included, as are the equally worthy “Everything That Flies”, “Holy Joe” and more.  

“The Aints! Live at The Bowlo” will be a vinyl version of the 2018 show by Kuepper’s Saints-inspired The Aints! only previously available in digital format.

The Aints! debut album “The Church of Simultaneous Existence” was 12 Kuepper-penned tracks written in Brisbane, London and Sydney during the time frame 1969-1978, in and around the formation of The Saints.

The Marrickville Bowlo show is that same Aints! studio album recorded live at a sold out Sydney show two nights prior to the commencement of the album sessions proper, and iot is a scorcher.

Hard copy versions of all three releases will be available May 29 via www.edkuepper.com and select record stores. All releases will also be available via Bandcamp and select digital avenues.
