LOUIS JUCKER Something Went Wrong – Vinyl LP (clear)

Pressing info : First press on clear vinyl LP (lim. to 160) housed in a 300g cover sleeve center hole on the back, fully printed inner sleeve and 24 pages vinyl size booklet.

Something Went Wrong is Louis Jucker’s most exhaustive work to date. Simple and direct folk and rock songs played with unaltered love for lo-fi sounds, by an artist that has become through the years a very unique and prolific figure of the swiss alternative music scene. A self-portrait in 10 songs, to face his own aging with humility, as depicted in the bittersweet home-made video “31 Years of Waiting for This”. The release of this new album will also be the right occasion for a luxurious and hand-made re-release of is early backcatalog, including his first and rare album Eight Orphan Songs (2013).
