Brisbane sound concert 3






Ed Kuepper Presents The Ascension Academy.
What a great gig this turned out to be. The band
included what is the Kowalski Collective
(Peter Oxley and Jeffrey Wegener) and a sax,
keyboard ,cello player and female vocalist.
Playing often wild instrumental music
with more than a nod to the laughing clowns.
There was a incendiary version of the saints
"Save me" which the girl, who has one fine
set of lungs sang. Ed and Jeff were on fire
and Judi Dansfield-Kuepper provided some
fine visual backdrops. I managed to remember
to take the camera so I've got some shots to share.

Sounds fantastic - did they play any actual Clowns material or just explore a similar style? Either way I wish I'd been able to get along!

They didn't play any actual clowns
songs but a few times a few clowns riffs came through, it was good I hope Ed will do it again
