The Dream Academy


Biography


The Dream Academy were a 1980s British folk rock band, comprising singer/guitarist Nick Laird-Clowes, multi-instrumentalist (chiefly oboeist) Kate St John and keyboardist Gilbert Gabriel. They are most noted for their hit single, Life in a Northern Town.

All three members of the band remain active recording musicians, each with their own careers. They are said to have reunited on a forthcoming album, “Angels and Fools”, by Gilbert’s new band, The Excellent Staircase (formally The Believers); on the track “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want”, a cover of the song by The Smiths.
