A message from Ed Kuepper:
“Hi everyone, due to the uncertainty about everything covid-border-quarantine related both Jim and myself have decided to bin the remaining dates for 2021. Instead we will aim to find a time in 2022 that works for us all. Sincere apologies; we appreciate that you have stuck with us over the months and it hasn’t been an easy decision. We hung in there as long as we could but this latest strain is causing havoc that we cannot navigate.
Refunds available from the point of purchase.”
In the meantime we have tour merch to sell so for 48 hours starting 12pm Tuesday Sept 7 we will be offering select items at up to 15% off (just so we can get a little something for our efforts). https://artistfirst.com.au/collections/ed-kuepper
Thanks for your support. See you all before you know it.”

Why didn’t anyone think of this before?
Kuepper; the co-founder of ’70’s proto-punks The Saints, chief architect of the uncompromising Laughing Clowns and The Aints! and master songsmith over some 15+ solo albums, and White; the brilliant drummer of renowned instrumentalists Dirty Three, partner in the genre-defying Xylouris White and disciple of all things Ed. Together they will tackle 45 years worth of Kuepper catalogue with a twist that only these two game-changers could apply.
“Jim is one of the finest drummers I’ve seen and heard anywhere, totally gets inside of whatever he’s playing in an unpredictable and exciting way, been wanting to work with him for a long while’’ – Ed Kuepper
“I learnt drums playing with Aretha Franklin and the Saints on my childhood home’s furniture. The Saints’ first three record, Laughing Clowns and Ed Kuepper’s solo work have been a huge inspiration for me in my drumming life and beyond, a well of inspiration I carry with me and can dip into at will.” – Jim White
The show(s) will coincide with a trio of retrospective releases from Kuepper covering his solo years, Laughing Clowns and The Aints! All titles will be released in limited amounts, on coloured vinyl and with select CD issues also. It’s the first is a series of reissued releases from Kuepper as he takes charge of his own legacy whilst continuing to move forward.
“I like how Ed Kuepper – like Lou Reed or Bob Dylan – doesn’t want to replay the hits as was and at the same time doesn’t pretend to not have a past nor a future. In working with the musicians they play with, they revisit their material in new and old ways as well as creating new material and its not a binary problem, an ethic that seems relevant to all things to me.” – Jim White
It will be Kuepper, Jim, but not as you know it…
“Ed Kuepper wrote suggesting we play and that’s why I’m writing this… I said yes and we will see what happens, see you there.” – Jim White
The night will comprise of one set, beginning at 8pm. No support, no intermission. These 2 men will get into their groove and take us along for the ride.
Tickets : $52 Pre-Sale, $55 at the door (includes all bkg fees and GST).
