BARRY ADAMSON + A CERTAIN RATIO
LISTEN TO A CERTAIN RATIO’S REWORKING OF I GOT CLOTHES
FROM THE FORTHCOMING REMIX EP
OUT 24 NOVEMBER 2017
BARRY ADAMSON has announced details of a brand new EP, ‘Love Sick Dick Remixed’, out on vinyl and download on 24 November 2017 and shares the first track, a reworking of ‘I Got Clothes’ by Manchester’s A Certain Ratio.
A Certain Ratio went into the studio and recorded the song live, explaining “We’ve always liked Barry’s music and were honoured when we were asked to work with him. We didn’t want to do it like a typical remix but more of a collaboration. We approached it as if we were writing an ACR track from scratch and built on a groove playing everything live then chopped Barry’s vocal for the verses and the female scatting vocals for the choruses. We added drums, bass, guitar, trumpet, keyboards, vocals, percussion, Roland 303 and vocoder and are really pleased with the outcome. The end section is typical ACR where it takes off and goes somewhere else. We haven’t worked out where that somewhere else is yet but we have been trying to get there for ages and love searching for it.”
The new EP will featuring remixes and reworkings from Gazelle Twin, Ben de Vries (Lunacre), ADULT., Jimi Tenor and Wheel who have all tackled tracks from Adamson’s recent EP, ‘Love Sick Dick’.
Barry Adamson will be talking at two events in London next month. In the first, he’ll take part in a talk following the Royal Albert Hall’s 20th anniversary screening of Lynch’s classic noir, Lost Highway, which Adamson contributed music to. And on the 9 October he will be at Wilton’s Music Hall for a live storytelling event, which will see Adamson talk about a track that has changed his life, alongside the poet Murray Lachlan Young, music manager Simon Napier-Bell and more.
1 Oct, Lost Highway screening and talk, Royal Albert Hall
9 Oct, One Track Minds at Wiltons Music Hall
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. He is constantly sought across all art forms for commentary and contribution. His music being both the platform and background for documentaries, TV series, adverts, computer games and even an Olivier Award winning ballet performance by Sylvie Guillem and the Ballet Boyz.
It was always a logical progression for Adamson to move behind the camera and once again his brooding film noir style and dark comedy has seen him write, direct and score a number of short films, including ‘The Swing The Hole and The Lie’’ (2014).
Rising phoenix like from the flames of his previous work, Adamson continues to push himself and blur the lines of film, music and art.
Musician, composer, writer, photographer, filmmaker. Barry Adamson is not a man to take it easy.
