Nikki Sudden "Dark Rags At Dawn" 7xLP + 7" BOX

$157.00

In founding Swell Maps, the post-punk prefacing Birmingham art-snots, Nikki Sudden and his drumming brother Epic Soundtracks charted new territory for racket and corrosive guitar. But after folding Swell Maps at the dawn of the '80s, Nikki Sudden plowed through another decade's worth of terrifically fertile ground. Drawing on his devotion to the Rolling Stones and T. Rex - alongside guitarist Dave Kusworth as Jacobites, plus a cheekily named cohort of British sidemen - Nikki Sudden cut a string of raw, inspired rock 'n' roll records, etched with double edged travel melancholia and hard-bitten punk dejection.This career-spanning 7xLP box set compiles Sudden's landmark solo LPs Waiting On Egypt and The Bible Belt, the Dave Kusworth-era LPs Jacobites and Robespierre's Velvet Basement, Sudden's Rowland S. Howard collaboration Kiss You Kidnapped Charabanc, and his Creation-issued masterpieces Texas and Dead Men Tell No Tales. Limited to just 500 copies, this set also includes Sudden's debut solo single "Back to The Start" b/w "Ringing On My Train."
