Q&A Scene: Ed Kuepper ~ The AINTS

Tell us about your Release ‘5-6-7-8-9’ and tour ?


5-6-7-8-9 is the blockbusting mini lp follow up to last years smash album ”The Church of Simultaneous Existence” by The Aints!. We continue the exploration and investigation of the inexplicable breech of the space time continuum that occurred when the original Saints disbanded in late 1978. The tour will be a live/in person personification of the aforementioned and will be like a lightning flash of cosmic awareness raising rock’n’roll … catch it while you can. 


What’s your favourite work at this point in time? 


Goodnight Ladies [I hear a sound without] I like it it because it’s the oldest song on the record but acts like the youngest.


Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote from the recording of ‘5-6-7-8-9’.


We recorded some of the tracks at the ABC Studios in Ultimo Sydney and the sessions were almost cancelled because security refused to believe that our drummer Paul Larson was working on a session there.


What, or who, inspires you?


Spontaneous acts of kindness, great music and art, people that try to protect our dwindling natural environment, my beautiful one year old granddaughter Madeleine Louise.


Which song do you wish you wrote?


Not something I spend a lot of time thinking about really but if I did, lots I guess….”Eloise” by Barry Ryan amongst others


What’s next for you?


Well The Aints! are touring to promote our new mini-lp then I’m going on select series of solo shows where I’ll be debuting songs that I hope to include on my forthcoming solo album ”Electricity, the High Priest of all Security”
