Bio

Cuss is the collaboration between Lewis Rice O'Donnell and Jordan Shakespeare resulting in the jangly rock "Never Again" and "Mainland", released 3rd December. Recorded in Shakespeare's home studio in Fremantle, these tracks see O'Donnell's song writing produced and arranged in a tighter pop form. Thanks to digital to tape and tape to digital conversions, the recordings have a 60s analogue quality, reminiscent of The Kinks and The Byrds.

Known for his solo work and as the front man in the loose and raucous The Feast of Snakes (featuring Peter Bibby's bass player Strawbs), O'Donnell sings in Cuss, writes the lyrics, played bass on the recordings, and plucks the guitar parts on a 60s Fyrbyrd guitar. Shakespeare, who has previously worked on Stella Donnelly's "Thrush Metal" album and an array of d.i.y W.A rock and roll, is the production man, developing and recording O'Donnell's songs and playing drums.
