Jacobites were an English rock band formed in Birmingham in 1982 by Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth, following the breakup of their respective previous bands, the Swell Maps and the Subterranean Hawks.

Robespierre's Velvet Basement, the shambolic second album by Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth's Jacobites, is a masterpiece of free-wheeling songwriting, loose arrangements, tossed-off vocals, and straight-to-the-gut emotional expression. The Jacobites were never influenced by what was going on around them; they preferred an earlier, more decadent era in rock, and in their sound one gets the jagged shards of Jagger and Richards, Stewart and Lane, and Ronson and Hunter. Not that the Jacobites sound anything like the Rolling Stones, the Faces, or Ian and Mick

this RSD release is the 2 x lp version of the album. Originally issued in 1985 the record label deemed it too costly to issue as its intended format a double lp. So issued it as a single lp. It has never been re issued on vinyl in the uk since that time. Presented in a gatefold sleeve with unseen photos from the time and liner notes from surviving member Dave Kusworth. partner Nikki Sudden having died in 2006).

The result, Robespierre’s Velvet Basement, is less a rare item nowadays than it is a completely random find, an ever-narrow crawlspace of hoarded music, that people usually stumble onto when they delve into the blinding oversupply of Nick Cave’s old tour-mates and writing partners. Robespierre is a heady alloy of jangle pop, psychedelic guitar schisms and old country  . At a track-list that’s 27 songs long, Robespierre does at time stretch itself too thin, especially when taken in in one sitting.
