The Jacobites were an English rock band formed initally 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.

Sudden and Kusworth were both strongly influenced by The Faces, Dylanand Glam Rock, and, most vitally, The Rolling Stones their open worship of the group (Kusworth’s entire body of work would later be described as “A tear-stained meeting of Johnny Thunders meets, the Rolling Stones “Wild Horses” era and Neil Young’s “Down By The River” wrapped in scarves, and bound up in velvet jackets, leather pants, and shrouded by cigarette smoke while Sudden called the Stones “the best band there has ever been” and was working on a Ronnie Wood bio at the time of his death), The band combined velvet-and-scarves style of dressing and their girls-and-drugs style of living,

The Jacobites reissue of “Old Scarlett” (1995) is released for the first time on Vinyl format! The band featured Nikki Sudden & Dave Kusworth it is probably their greatest love & death songs collection. An essential band!
