Without a doubt Adamson’s name will always be associated with Magazine and Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds. What should not be forgotten, though, is the fact that Barry Adamson is an equally productive and valued solo artist since the 80’s, when he released his first EP “The Man With The Golden Arm” via the legendary label Mute Records.
Over the years, he produced an astonishing wide and diverse range of music, which he complemented this year with his new album “Know Where To Run”. Listening to his newest release, one can hear the different influences he has been exposed to throughout his career: Every now and then one feels the cool aggressions of post-punk, gets comforted by jazzy vibes and is yet reminded of darkish Bad Seeds-ballads.
In spring 2017 Barry Adamson is touring in Germany.
