JACOBITES "THE OTTER SONG / APARTMENT TO COMPARTMENT" 7"single (2011)(STR-008)
Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth, or what is the same, the Jacobites, were formed in the early 80's as one of the most special and essential bands that arose from the underground British scene. Sunthunder Records is proud to be part of the small velvet universe contained in this 7", which contains two unreleased songs by Sudden & Kusworth.
On one side we have a tune that Nikki recorded in 2003 with his friend Joey Skidmore and other French artists. "The Otter Song" keeps the intensity of the greatest Sudden moments, with a remarkable John Rivers as engineer/producer for most of the discography by this Birmingham lot.
So what's on the other side? Dave Kusworth's "Apartment to compartment", an early-day classic on the Jacobites set list, a Rock & Roll smack in the purest Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street" style Recorded in Spain with Los Tupper, a Spanish support band that fits the Jacobite sound like a glove.
"Love stories failed and consumed in full ashtrays, shattered dreams as the last bottle of Chardonnay crashes against the ground while the light of a new morning comes through the curtains amongst a sweet hangover".
