The Brighton Magazine has spent decades shouting from the social media rooftops about the left-field talents of Chicago-bred, Nashville-based creative, Doug Hoekstra. And now, more than a decade since his last long-form collection of peerless left-of-centre gems, the troubadour is back with, The Day Deserved.

As always, Fun Lovin' Criminals, the multi-platinum New York trio have plenty to celebrate, but the opportunity to escape the lockdown gloom of the past year and party with fans in Brighton, later this year, is what's fueling their current optimism.
