Two classic Barry Adamson albums repressed and available on vinyl for the first time in many years.

Brought up in Manchester’s Moss Side, Barry Adamson began his career in 1977, learning to play the bass literally overnight for Magazine, Manchester’s most influential band of that era. When they disbanded five albums later in 1981 his definitive touch was spotted by The Birthday Party, with whom he played several times.

After that band’s final implosion in 1983, Barry became a founder member of The Bad Seeds, along with Nick Cave, Mick Harvey and Blixa Bargeld.

Originally released in 1996 ‘Oedipus Schmoedipus’ garnered him his most widespread acclaim to date as a composer of vision, insight and innovation.

The album journey opens and closes with ‘Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Pelvis’, a propulsive fusion of rock, gospel and funk featuring guest artist Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker on lead vocal.

An interval in the journey is provided by former Associate, the late great Billy McKenzie on ‘Achieved In The Valley Of Dolls’, while Nick Cave provides a considered acceptance of a relationship’s demise as guest vocalist on ‘The Sweetest Embrace’.
