We’re excited to say that this Sunday see’s our first event in Brighton! We’ll be hosting an event at The Latest Music Bar in Brighton and for our launch we’ll be joined by award winning journalist Simon Price listening to Patti Smith ‘Horses’.
The second event is already confirmed for December 6th, look at for an announcement on the featured album soon!
A huge influence on post punk acts like The Smiths, Patti Smith’s debut album ‘Horses’ emerged from New York’s music underground in late 1975. A cornerstone of the burgeoning punk rock scene, ‘Horses’ is truly a classic album with poetic beauty. Produced by John Cale of the Velvet Underground, it also includes guest musicians Tom Verlaine of Television and Allen Lanier of Blue Oyster Cult on ‘Elegie’. The latter, written about Jimi Hendrix’s death, is made more poignant by the fact that it was recorded at the famous Electric Lady Studios.
Then we will feature an uninterrupted full vinyl playback of the album on one of the world’s best hi-fi sound systems. Listeners will hear the album in a way few ever get to, experiencing it closer to the artist’s original intention. The evening will conclude with a Q&A during which fans will have the opportunity to ask Simon questions on the album. This event will give the Patti Smith Group fan an experience to remember.
