Nikki Sudden And The Jacobites Texas on LP from Numero Group

In a year when overproduced rock-fluff flooded radio waves, Texas - Nikki Sudden’s 1986 solo debut for Creation Records - blasted through the saccharin for a damaged and masterful invocation at the imperfect alters of Chilton and Bolan, sonic influences the Brit bore proudly on his velvet sleeve throughout the course of his polarizing prolificacy. 

As the increasingly splintered Rolling Stones cultivated “Harlem Shuffle” cover cheese, the former Jacobite leader looked to the ragged Exile On Main St. and Sticky Fingers roots of his icons for a raw, 12-song predication melding tender jangle and staggering swagger. Widely considered Sudden’s solo magnum opus, Texas is an exquisite mélange of the off-kilter sub-terrestrial songwriter.

In founding Swell Maps, the post-punk prefacing Birmingham art-snots, 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 - Sudden cut a string of raw, inspired rock ‘n’ roll records, etched with double edged travel melancholia and hard-bitten punk dejection.
