JACOBITES

ROBESPIERRE'S VELVET BASEMENT

THE NUMERO GROUP



lp

Released: 23rd Jan 2014

out of stock


The lush second album by Nikki Sudden & Dave Kusworth as Jacobites (from 1985) is a decadent & inviting garage, decorated by upfront acoustic guitars & unabashed devotion to Faces, Stones, & the folky young Bolan.

Drunk on red wine & shambling through predictions of Brit pop to come, 'Robespierre’s Velvet Basement', originally planned for four sides of Glass Records vinyl, was pared down to hit a pinnacle of Nikki Sudden’s ‘80s oeuvre, a loose & grandly bedraggled portrait of British rock at the crossroads.
