Surprise! The Aints! return to Sydney this April for a final appearance before the recording of their debut album ‘The Church Of Simultaneous Existence’ in May.
This time though Ed, Pete, Paul and Alister will be presenting an epic two-set show; the first set comprised of material conceived and / or recorded in Australia and the years 1973 – 1977 and the second set covering the material written or released by Kuepper for The Saints during 1977 – 1978 and the band’s tenure in the U.K. In effect; more Aints! and more Saints! Completing this alchemy of Herr Kuepper’s teenage blues is a name change with the band from here on in to be known as The Aints! (exclamation mark included). It all goes down Friday 27th April
at the Marrickville Bowling Club
