Electrical Storm is the debut solo album by Australian guitarist and songwriter Ed Kuepper featuring Nick Fisher and Louis Tillett recorded in 1985 and released on the Hot label.[1] The album was Kuepper's first release following the breakup of Laughing Clowns, the band he formed after leaving The Saints.

Kuepper later explained, "I sort of retired. It was at that point Jude and I got married, and went away for a honeymoon on the fabulous Gold Coast. I took a guitar and wrote a lot of songs. And that was Electrical Storm basically. I did it for the princely sum of $1200."[2]
