HR (of Bad Brains) & Human Rights: The New Gospel

HR & Human Rights

Paul “HR” Hudson is best known as the front man of the iconic punk band Bad Brains, formed in 1979. With unprecedented speed and precision, Bad Brains took the Washington, DC music scene by storm and quickly became the most influential band in American punk history, breaking down cultural barriers and creating emotionally charged music centered on the message of maintaining a positive mental attitude (PMA). This concept of PMA continues to inspire HR’s fans.

Early in his career, HR became interested in reggae and the Rastafarian movement. These pursuits transformed him, and he began to focus more on the spiritual nature of reggae rather than the fast lifestyle of the punk scene. In 1984, HR formed his reggae band Human Rights, which has performed and recorded in various incarnations for more than three decades. Now, HR has joined with Philadelphia reggae group Kingsound Vibration (Ezekiel Zagar, guitar, and Josh Freshy, bass) plus Wesley Rast, drums, and Adam Flicker, keys, to form HR & Human Rights: The New Gospel. Each member brings experience in multiple genres, and HR and the band perform classic Human Rights songs and new compositions.
