Album Review

Aussie legend Kuepper was missed during the six years he stopped recording (after his plethora of LPs over 15 years), but 2007 has seen his revival. First, three-fourths of the original 1973-1978 Saints played their triumphant (from a recording) first reunion concert since their split, in July in front of 7,000 in their native Brisbane. (And to further mark the thawing of their long cold war, Saints singer Chris Bailey further joins Kuepper on a song here, their first studio collaboration in 29 years since Prehistoric Sounds.

Long, varied, constantly and effectively surprising and involving, it's just plain fabulous.

The Laughing Clowns released three EPs during the early '80s before their debut self-titled album appeared in 1982. Kuepper...
