hsg edSaints and Laughing Clowns elder statesman Ed Kuepper is backing an extensive re-issue campaign of his solo back catalogue with a series of Australian shows under the moniker, “The Exploding World of Ed Kuepper".

Kuepper will be joined by the all;-star band of Mark Dawson on drums, ex-Sunnyboys bassist Peter Oxley,  pianist Alister Spence and brass maestro Eamon Dilworth for a run through seven states and territories. 

The Exploding Universe will tackle the best of “Electrical Storm” and “Honey Steel’s Gold”, the iconic Kuepper solo records being re-issued in re-mastered form in all formats right now by Remote Control label. All shows are fully seated and on sale now.

Kuepper, of course, is co-founder of  The Saints and founder of the post-punk era-defining Laughing Clowns. The reissues of his long-out-of-print, seminal solo debut”Electrical Storm” (1985) and “Honey Steel's Gold” (1990) have been worked on by studio genius Don Bartley using the original analogue tapes. 

Says Kuepper: ”This is the first time either title has had a remaster since their initial release. They are the best ever sounding versions of both albums."
