Barry Adamson

Known for his tenure as a bassist with Magazine, and later as a Bad Seed with Nick Cave, Barry Adamson is a veritable genre unto himself. An acclaimed writer, prolific solo artist, filmmaker, video game and movie soundtrack composer (David Lynch, Oliver Stone), producer, vocalist, performance artist, multi-instrumentalist, and photographer – among other endeavors - Barry the bass player plied adventurous grooves and countermelodies with a sharp, resonant tone which helped define the early post-punk era which merged punk, avant-garde, no wave, and industrial.
