Kim and the Cinders
Kim and the Cinders
Thus the recordings and performances are permeated by a great ambience - a sense of time and place - that really puts you there. Under the beech in the pouring rain. Outside the house in the dead of night. Between the pines in the early morning.
Inside the trailer driving through the woods. All the unique, special, crazy and even dangerous locations chosen by the band and producer The Great Nalna. The CD and LP booklet contains some images to go along with the recordings as does the documentary included on the cd and available for viewing and download on www.kimandthecinders.dk. Born in 1971 in Monastir, Tunisia, Kim Jeppesen is a wonder-boy of rock. A double bass master, an instrument he played in his first band The Godless Wicked Creeps (1990-1998), he was noticed by Jon Spencer who hauled him up on his Heavy Trash project.
After the GWC split-up, he formed Powersolo, the only genuine “donkey-punk” band in the world, which gave him worldwide recognition. But Kim Jeppesen is a man of multiple projects (he side-works with his brother Bo –also a member of Powersolo – in The Railthin Brothers, with Frank Ziyanak in Gezus Crystler and of course guitar wizard Ulrik "Horatio" Lindez) and he wanted a band that would be more in touch with his psychedelic-folky side, and where ballads would be an acceptable song format. A tribute to folk, in its many shapes, Kim and the Cinders début album possesses the ring of truth only intimate songs can give. .
On this recording, influenced by Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Richard and Mimi Fariña, Al Perry and Giant Sand to name a few, Kim finds his own path. Through the hottest sands and the darkest woods, over the highest mountains and the deepest fjords. Some songs will creep under your skin, and some will drill a hole in your skull, and suck your brains out. Others will leave you floating in a state of unconsciousness, and one song will try to kill you, if you interrupt it! When everything is gone...
