DAVE KUSWORTH & THE BOUNTY HUNTERS - Live @ The KWNN, Stevenage, 10/5/90
What can I say about Dave Kusworth ???…probably more well known for his work during the mid 80's with the late’n’great Nikki Sudden as one half of The Jacobites. Dave had been playing in bands around his native Birmingham since 1978; TV Eye, The Subterranean Hawks, before going on to join the original line up of The Dogs D’Amour sometime whenever. This recording finds him in Stevenage with his then band The Bounty Hunters when they supported Johnny Thunders. It’s 40 minutes of pure bliss, there’s some beautiful songs here, including a couple of Jacobites numbers and the brilliant Violet Lights Are Broken, that tune sends shivers down my spine every time I hear it. This is music to chill out to and cry to. (Hopefully not at the same time, unless you’ve had some real bad shit) Anyway, tap into yer emotions here! and enjoy some heartbreak.
