Press release Bailey & Kuepper - live in May 2010


Bailey & Kuepper – two names that are synonymous with quality music of antipodean origins.  

Both gentlemen being ofcourse two of the founding members of the Brisbane band that lit the fuse of what exploded into Punk - The Saints.

Highly successful recording artists both as solo artists and as leaders of bands, each with a vast back catalogue of solo and group recordings, humongous if combined. 

Chris Bailey has continued recording and touring all over the world for the last two and half decades both as a solo artist and with the Saints.  In addition he is the lead singer in the General Dog, has been a special guest on many a recording and has lent his skills as a producer to other artists.

Ed Kuepper also has a much lauded history as a solo artist and with his bands; Laughing Clowns and The Aints.  He has worked as a producer with other artists as well as composing several soundtracks. Kuepper joined Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds in 2009 and continues to tour and record with his current backing band the Kowalski Collective.

Australian audiences last saw both gentlemen reunited upon the stage as ‘The Saints’ for the ‘All Tomorrow’s Parties’ Festival early 2009. 

We are happy to announce Messrs Bailey & Kuepper are planning a Grand Tour of musical soirees together.  They will be performing not only a selection from their collaborative works, but will also draw from their respective solo recordings.   

Prior to setting off on the road, this selection of songs will be stripped back, reworked and recorded for release as an acoustic offering via the infamous and esteemed Liberation Blue label.

Ladies and gentlemen:  we are thrilled to confirm that  Bailey & Kuepper will present their music soirees on the same day each week, at the same venue, thrice during the month of May in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
