Ed Kuepper will finally release an album by The Aints after forming the band in Sydney in 1991.
The Aints have released EP’s in the past. There was ‘Cheap Erotica’ in 1993 and and ‘Shelflife Unlimited – Hotter Than The Blazing Pistols’ in 1995. They recorded an album that was to be called ‘Afterlife’ but it was never released.
By the mid 90s The Aints had disbanded. In 2017 Ed gathered up Peter Oxley of Sunnyboys, Paul Larsen Loughhead of Celebrant Rifles and The New Christs, jazz pianist Alister Spence and brass arranger Eamon Dilworth to do The Aints all over again.
That line-up will release ‘The Church of Simultanesous Existence’ on 21 September, 2018.
”Things had started to move fairly quickly once The Saints recorded [I’m] Stranded (Fatal Records) in mid ’76. We recorded three albums over the next two years as well as doing a fair it of touring, and for a while things were looking very promising, however, business problems, compounded by personal and artistic differences meant the band didn’t get around to recording all the material I had lying around….so forty [very] odd years later it occurred to me that these songs might well have made up a hypothetical 4th album….The Church of the Simultaneous Existence…..the songs that refused to die….performed in much the way they would have had the band not split up in 1978″ , Ed Kuepper said in a statement.
The Aints ‘The Church of Simultanesous Existence’ was produced by Ed Kuepper and co-produced by Peter Oxley and Tim Pittman. It was recorded at Electric Avenue Studios, Sydney and engineered and mixed by Phil Punch.
