Nikki Sudden And Dave Kusworth Jacobites on LP from Numero Group

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, 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 cut a string of raw, inspired rock ‘n’ roll records, etched with double-edged travel melancholia and hard-bitten punk dejection.

Unavailable in their native format since the 1980s, Nikki Sudden’s own Waiting on Egypt and The Bible Belt, plus Jacobites and Robspierre’s Velvet Basement - Sudden’s stellar collaborations with Dave Kusworth - return to LP. These first four missives in a 7-LP Nikki Sudden reissue project get the high-standard treatment JR and Numero buyers know and love: replica album cover artwork and labels, original tracklistings, tip-on sleeves, and the handsome obi that has become a JR hallmark.

Dual guitars announce “Big Store” and 1984’s Jacobites, originally on Glass Records, the first official appearance of Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth under that imprimatur - and its direct allusion to British royal lineage of yesteryear. The matching LP trafficked in dramatic rock classicism: vital, shambolic, anchored by acoustic strumming and a healthy obsession with plaintive Dylan phrasings. Songwriting swung hard at Stewart/Wood tropes, while Sudden & Kusworth took grim new looks at the same hills Mick and Keith had long since rolled past.
