Gil Rose

GIL ROSE "STAR AU SOTO BAR" CD (2012)(STR-009)

For his first offence, some years ago, Gil Rose claimed he was King of nothing. A clear statement and a real good start. Backed by Les Hydropathes in some Nino Ferrer / Ronnie Bird sixties-garage way. For this new one, he's now Star au Soto Bar. At last! Such an improvement. In between, you'll find a couple of others records. Less revival, much more sarcastic. Coming with a non-stop obsession for refinement and ironic peculiarity. Sometimes haunted by Nikki Sudden, Johnny Thunders or long time forgotten old bluesmen. But, above all, mainly Gil Rose. He's one of a kind. Logical next step was going alone. Offering the substantial. Closer to the bone. That's what "Soto bar" is all about. Bare record, full of imagination. A whole world. With great melodies. Less is more! Recorded and produced by none than Wreckless Eric, a legend by himself. Some fascinating bittersweet love songs and an handful of neurotic mocking ones. Add a cathartic celebration of western B- movie. Probably shooted in Spain. And even a couple of bossa nova. The guy HATES routine !! And reinvent what he likes about rock'n'roll. Something one part primitive, one part smart. And funny. With booze, women and tenderness. Doin' it his way. Informal. He's right!

Dave Kusworth & Los Tupper

DAVE KUSWORTH & LOS TUPPER "THROWING ROCKS IN HEAVEN" CD(2012)(STR-012)

Dave Kusworth is one of the best hidden gems of rock & roll. With a long career on his back (Jacobites, Bounty Hunters, Tenderhooks, Dogs D'Amour) and a bunch of amazing solo albums, "the Birmingham kid" is still on the road. Recorded entirely during his last tours in Spain with the support of his good friends Los Tupper. You'll find a tasteful manifest along the grooves of "Throwing Rocks in Heaven". Dave takes out of his pocket (besides a rocket) a collection of songs that travel from idyllic landscapes to the darkest alleys. From the more excited Stones to a heartbroken J.Thunders. Slaps of reality looking artificial paradises, drowning for the last time at the bottom of a bottle. Take care and take a look at the sky because it might rain down rocks.

Sonic Trash

SONIC TRASH
"HEY CHICA!" CD/LP (2012)(STR-010)

"Hey Chica!!" is the first Sonic Trash album, the new adventure of David Hono after four albums and several years on the road with his former band Ya te Digo.
An impressive declaration of principles with the scent of the 90's best sounds. They remind us to bands like Screaming Trees, Afghan Whigs or Jane's Addiction although not forgetting other classics like the Velvet Underground or the Stooges. The band show us all their cards in "Hey Chica!!" where they mix English and Spanish in the lyrics, creating a varied and homogeneous concept. Sharp-edged riffs, acid lyrics and crazy rythms are their credentials. Soldiers of gaupasa waiting in the trenches. We hope you enjoy it, cabronazos.

Jacobites

JACOBITES "THE OTTER SONG / APARTMENT TO COMPARTMENT" 7"single (2011)(STR-008)

Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth, or what is the same, the Jacobites, were formed in the early 80's as one of the most special and essential bands that arose from the underground British scene. Sunthunder Records is proud to be part of the small velvet universe contained in this 7", which contains two unreleased songs by Sudden & Kusworth.

On one side we have a tune that Nikki recorded in 2003 with his friend Joey Skidmore and other French artists. "The Otter Song" keeps the intensity of the greatest Sudden moments, with a remarkable John Rivers as engineer/producer for most of the discography by this Birmingham lot.

So what's on the other side? Dave Kusworth's "Apartment to compartment", an early-day classic on the Jacobites set list, a Rock & Roll smack in the purest Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street" style Recorded in Spain with Los Tupper, a Spanish support band that fits the Jacobite sound like a glove.

"Love stories failed and consumed in full ashtrays, shattered dreams as the last bottle of Chardonnay crashes against the ground while the light of a new morning comes through the curtains amongst a sweet hangover".

Ruins

KEVIN JUNIOR "RUINS" CD (2009)(HPR-013 // STR-006)

"Ruins" (a collection of rarities, b-sides & outtakes): Altough the name Kevin Junior may not yet be the household name it deserves to be, anyone seriously into the best American indie bands of the last ten years will surely get excited if you name them The Chamber Strings. As it is the band was formed in 1997 by Kevin (singer/songwriter/guitarist, a native of Akron, Ohio) in Chicago. But Kevin has quite a long career behind him, and "Ruins" traces an alternative story through its 19 rare or unissued tracks recorded by Kevin under different guises in the last 20 years: The Mystery Girls (1986-1992), The Rosehips (1992-1996) and The Chamber Strings (1997- present time) and on his own. Kevin has opened up his vaults to reevalute his long career, and the result is a collection that will serve both the long standing fans, who will find plenty to rejoice in, and the newcomers who will discover the amazing talent of one Kevin Junior.
