To celebrate the release of his upcoming brand new album later this year, Barry Adamson will headline two intimate shows at Manchester’s RNCM and London’s Union Chapel.
October 2018 marks the release of a brand new Barry Adamson anthology which brings together tracks from post punk legends Magazine, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds alongside classic Adamson tracks from throughout his solo career including I Got Clothes – A Certain Ratio Rework which was playlisted by 6Music for five weeks, Jazz Devil, The Big Bamboozle and The Man With The Golden Arm.
Barry Adamson has been creating all of his life. Perhaps his greatest creation is himself as a multi-disciplined artist. The self-taught musician rose to prominence as the bass player in Magazine and toured extensively. His establishment as a solo artist came after a three year stint with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and heralded the release of his seminal first solo album, Moss Side Story. Critically-acclaimed, it raised Adamson’s name as a composer of diverse complexity; able to tell a story with music, where the images were those supplanted in the minds of the listeners.
Offers quickly followed and saw Adamson work with some of the film industry’s most intriguing mavericks including Derek Jarman, David Lynch, Oliver Stone and Danny Boyle.
Having released nine studio albums, including the 1992 Mercury Music Prize nominated Soul Murder, Adamson has continued to tour globally with his talents being in as much demand by new generations of artists, as he was after his first solo release.
