Kiss You Kidnapped Charabanc / Live In Augsburg
Nikki Sudden and Rowland S. Howard first met while Howard was touring Europe in 1985 with his band Crime & The City Solution (along with his band mate and Sudden's late-brother Epic Soundtracks). Howard ended up playing on Sudden's third solo album "TEXAS" and they eventually recorded their dark opus KISS YOU KIDNAPPED CHARABANC together in 1987 for the Creation label. This extended reissue includes THE WEDDING HOTEL EP plus the outtake "French Revolution Blues." It also includes an incredible and never-before-released 12-song live set from September 18, 1987 from Augsburg, Germany featuring the line-up of Sudden on guitar and vocals, Howard on guitar and vocals, Desperate (of the Gun Club) on drums, and Duncan Sibbald on bass.
