STEVIE VAYNE AND THE SLAVES - Guarana / DAVE KUSWORTH - The Bounty Hunters
After the collapse of The Vaynes, singer Stevie hooked up with a new bunch of musicians who he christened The Slaves, and released the album Guarana, named after a stronger coffee like bean from Brazil, it finds him in a more reflective and introspective mood than previously, more Lou Reed/Velvet Underground than Iggy and The Stooges. This rip is from a promo tape I blagged of Stevie when they supported Johnny Thunders in Stevenage. The other support band that night was Dave Kusworth and The Bounty Hunters, so it seems an appropriate time and place to post this; The Bounty Hunters, his 1987 debut album, classic Kusworth that pulls on the old heart strings with an aching beauty that is only surpassed by his work with Nikki Sudden, brilliant stuff. Click here for some Stevie, and there for some Dave. Enjoy!
