Dave Kusworth lay low a while after leaving the Jacobites in mid-'86, spending his time recording a solo album (also credited to the Bounty Hunters, a quartet he led) which was released the following year. Marriage is on Dave's mind on The Bounty Hunters, as several of the songs — which interlock to form a long, vague romantic narrative — make reference to weddings, rings, wives and other such symptoms of betrothal. Showing an affinity for the folky side of Johnny Thunders, Kusworth's thin voice is no dynamic instrument, but it serves the material, as do the energetic arrangements of acoustic guitar and electric rock rhythms.

"Threads A tear stained scar" furthers Kusworth's quest for beauty in the underbelly. With the addition of a bevy of pastoral instruments (ranging from pocket trumpet to harpsichord), much of the material is redolent of that particular time in late-'60s/early-'70s Britain when debauchery gave way to rusticity (à la Led Zep II crossed with Blind Faith). Then again, the volume-heavy stuff could pass for Black Crowes outtakes, so go figure.

Dave Kusworth is brilliant,
but unfortunately, always sadly underrated. He was always great, playing either stonesy rockers or ballads. Thanx bro.

P.S. I have a couple of requests. Dogs D'Amour's "The State We're In" with Dave on guitar at the time and also, if you have em, utterly magnificent Joneses

Great post.

The best one yet.

Was always amazed that Dave K's Bounty Hunters didn't enjoy the same notoriety and (small) success of the Dogs D'Amour.
