On March 18th, Keith Richards will celebrate the 30th anniversary of his second album backed by the X-Pensive Winos with the deluxe release of 1992’s Main OffenderNME reported the new collection — featuring a bonus live disc, Winos Live In London ’92, will see release for the first time.

The set will be available on CD and vinyl in limited red, black, and smoke-colored LP’s. The new collection features “an 88-page leather-bound book featuring notes and exclusive photos.”

The X-Pensive Winos featured drummer Steve Jordan, guitarist Waddy Wachtel, bassist Charley Drayton, keyboardist Ivan Neville, singer Sarah Dash, and backing vocalists Bernard Fowler and Babi Floyd.

Keith Richards looked back at ‘Main Offender’ in a statement, which reads:

This is the second time around & the Winos are kind of developing — and if I can keep those guys together for as long as I can, it’s one of the best bands in the world. It’s a very intriguing band and the potential is only just starting to show itself. If I hadn’t have taken the Winos on the road, this record would probably have been totally different than it is.

I tried to avoid making too much sense on this record because to me that ambiguity and mystery, and a little provocation to make you think, is something far more powerful and more important than just wagging your finger and saying, ‘I know what he’s saying don’t do this, do that.’

If you’re a musician, silence is your canvas and you never want to fill-in the whole thing because then you’ve just covered it all. . . One of the most interesting parts about music is where you don’t play.
