First pressing on limited edition silver vinyl!
Remote Control is proud to announce the reissue of Ed Kuepper’s long out of print, remarkable catalogue of work, with many key titles to be made available on vinyl and CD for the first time in decades.
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. The first two albums to be reissued are Honey Steel’s Gold and Electrical Storm.
Out of print on vinyl for 35 years, Electrical Storm is Ed’s debut album under his own name, originally released in 1985, launching his solo career. A brooding statement of intent.
