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.
Join us to hear ‘Horses’ in a manner you never have before, switch your phone off and immerse yourself into the music!
