get you revved up for next January…
By Blurt Staff
Barry Adamson, of Magazine and
Bad Seeds and a prolific film scorer, releases his next album in January, title
tba. He is giving us the first taste with “Destination”, a roaring garage
anthem for the road with jet-fuel energy.

About the record: Thirty-four years
on from the first album he played on, the seminal Magazine’s post-punk classic
“Real Life,” Barry has made an album that touches on the sonic
stepping stones he’s used year by year to pave his way to the present. The
memories and experience from performing and taking his work across the world
with Magazine, the Bad Seeds, Iggy Pop, The Gun Club, writing for David Lynch,
Danny Boyle, being nominated for the Mercury Prize, scoring an Olivier
award-winning ballet, scooping the Best Short Story gong at Italy’s Piemonte
Noir festival for his debut work of fiction and writing, directing and editing
a movie whilst simultaneously heading back to grace the stage with a reformed
Magazine during their triumphant 2009 tour have directly informed this album,
coloring it with a steady, sure-handed experience that emanates from the
swagger and fingertip fire of rock numbers to emotive, yearning noir
ballads and new wave inflicted power pop.
