Dave Kusworth - one of England's forgotten troubadours, not unlike Nick Drake in his lifetime, a struggling musician...a dreamer and a romantic but a sensational songwriter. Kusworth was a hero about town (Birmingham) in the late 70's and early 80's with his bands The Hawks and TV Eye and later Rag Dolls before teaming up with ex Swell Map Nikki Sudden and forming Jacobites and recording the gloriously shambolic but quintessentially beautiful Robespierre's Velvet Basement. After a brief spell in Dogs D'Amour, Kusworth formed the Bounty Hunters. The band's long out of print 1988 late-night heartbreak record Wives, Weddings and Roses is an underrated gem done in the vein of his heroes like Johnny Thunders and the Stones. This new remastered version is pressed on colored vinyl and is issued on Kusworth's own Jack Of Hearts Records.
