First pressing on limited edition gold 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.

Honey Steel’s Gold has been out of print on vinyl for 30 years. Originally released in 1991 and featuring some of Ed’s most loved songs, (Everything I’ve Got Belongs To You and The Way I Made You Feel), this classic album reached a broader audience with it’s warm and contemplative sound.  The album features Chris Abrahams from The Necks on piano and Ed’s long time drummer Mark Dawson.
