To celebrate the March 28th release of ‘My Antique Son’…

Nick Hudson and The Academy of Sun
Me With Others
Restlesslist DJs

Wednesday, March 23, 8pm
The Hope, Brighton

Presenting tracks from ‘My Antique Son’ and the complete ‘Dead Souls’ piece in one of Brighton’s most-renowned live venues.

‘My Antique Son’ addresses Nick’s uncommon passions for vision-incensed dead poets, oblique sonic landscapes and ghosts-as-memories, via a progressive song-writing aesthetic that traces a lineage through William Blake, Rupert Brooke, Heliogabalus, Aleister Crowley, chanson, doom, and prog to create a bewitching psychedelic eruption of words and music.

The Academy of Sun has performed in churches, galleries, boats and dungeons, and are rapidly becoming one of the most versatile, spirit-charged ensembles in the UK.

Advance praise for ‘My Antique Son’ has seen London-based poet Jeremy Reed describe the record as ‘totally brilliant’, while David Tibet of Current 93 who contributes a foreword to the record’s liner notes has hailed it as ‘exquisite’.
