Barry Adamson Moss Side Story on LP
Barry Adamson’s work as a bassist for Magazine and Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds gave little indication of the complex, cinematic works he has composed as a solo artist. After leaving the Bad Seeds in 1987, Adamson decided to follow the path of film composers like John Barry, Ennio Morricone, and Bernard Herrmann, whose work had intrigued him since childhood.
His first full-length album, 1989’s Moss Side Story, is a tour de force, blending post-punk, industrial, spy guitar, and various classic movie composer quotes into a seamless 54-minute soundtrack to an ominous film noir that didn’t exist." This recording led to Adamson’s work on soundtracks for actual films in the early ‘90s, including Delusion, Gas Food Lodging, and Shuttle Cock.
Now, Barry Adamson's evocative debut solo album, Moss Side Story is being reissued back on vinyl for the first time since it’s original release in 1989 courtesy of Mute Records.
