Ed Kuepper and the Kowalski Collective, 4th Nov 07
at the Judith wright Center for the Arts, here in Brisbane.
Made available for download by Ed himself is a few tunes
from a blistering performance from Ed and the Kowalski's.
The night was in two parts, 1st some old tunes, like the
20 year old "Too many clues",the 2nd half was the debut
of Eds first album since Pacific smile,
Jean Lee and the Yellow Dog, in its entirety.
I'm real happy to get this perfect recording, cause I was
in the audience at this gig and it was very, very good.
But isn't Ed always.
And what a band, the legendary Jeffrey Wegener on drums
and Peter Oxley (ex sunnyboys) on bass,
as well as fine accompaniment from Jane Elliot and Ceri McCoy.
Many thanks to Mialee for pointing in the direction of this
recording, check out his new blog Ambient Highway,
it look like its going to be great and the 1st post has a Ed track.
