☼ Nikki Sudden - Waiting On Egypt / The Bible Belt [June 2008 re-post]



As a founding member of the much lauded '70s group, Swell Maps, Nikki Sudden, together with his brother, Epic Soundtracks, helped define a new form of musical freedom and experimentation which helped usher in the post-punk revolution. After the demise of the Swell Maps at the dawn of the '80s, Sudden enjoyed a very fertile period in which he began releasing solo albums, as well as albums with Dave Kusworth as the Jacobites, and the monumental collaboration with Rowland S. Howard (The Birthday Party, Crime & The City Solution). Drawing on the sounds of the Rolling Stones and T. Rex, Sudden made some of the most raw and inspired albums full of double-edged melancholia and twentieth century malaise this side of Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Johnny Thunders.
Secretly Canadian gives the two-fer treatment to this underground rock icon by reissuing these two full-lengths from 1982 and 1983, and adding many bonus tracks.
