Why See Patti Smith?
Godmother of punk patti smith live
Patti Smith is one of punk's founding figures. She emerged, wiry and tousle-haired, in 1975, with her Tom Verlaine assisted and John Cale produced debut record Horses. A wildly ambitious and forceful album of free form poetry set against a backdrop of new wave guitars, it immediately established Smith as a truly singular artist.
Throughout the rest of the 70s, her music shifted towards a more mainstream rock sound, with her 1978 single 'Because the Night', co-written by Bruce Springsteen, marking her commercial peak. In the years since, she's continued producing acclaimed albums (her most recent effort was 2012's Banga), assembled art exhibitions and written her memoirs.
