Ex-Saint and total Aussie music legend Ed Kuepper is celebrating 45 years as a recording artist, with three new retrospective releases and his debut gig at the Sydney Opera House.

Yes, one or two sets simply wouldn’t be enough to house the work of the prolific Kuepper, so we can look forward to three sets on coloured vinyl:

Ed Kuepper – Singles ’86 – ’96
Laughing Clowns – Golden Days // When Giants Walked the Earth 
The Aints! Live at The Bowlo

The singles selection will also be available as a two CD set, complete with a bonus disc of B-sides, EP tracks and fan faves.

May 29 is the day to etch into your diary – which gives you time to save up for these three beauties!

Meanwhile, at the Sydney Opera House…

Ed Kuepper will be performing two gigs on Sunday, June 13 – one at  3:30pm and one at 7:30pm. He’ll be joined by Dirty Three founder Jim White on drums, and we’re promised “45 years’ worth of Kuepper‘s music, with a twist”.

A pre-sale commences on Wednesday, March 31 at 9am AEDT, with general sales kicking off at 9am the following day.

There’ll also be a slew of shows around the country leading up to those dates, which you can see below – get all your additional info here.
