Extradition Order are launching their next album on 26 January at the Lexington in Islington.
Playing the album in full, American Prometheus tells the story of the life of theoretical physicist J Robert Oppenheimer through the medium of Northern Soul music. Covering the rise of the right, sexual affairs, academic breakthroughs and nuclear holocausts, this is the second of Extradition Order's American Century trilogy.
It is dedicated to the life, energy and love of Nicholas Boardman whose voice and bass playing makes this record work and who is missed. This will serve as both a memorial show for the life of Nick Boardman and the launch of his final album with all profits from the show and record going to the hospice that looked after him at the end.
Also on the bill are David Cronenberg's Wife, The Awkward Silences and Ed Seed (Stats).
