Barry Adamson ‘Know Where To Run’ LP
Barry Adamson takes us ‘Back To The Cat’(alogue) with a series of reissues on CD and coloured vinyl.
Barry’s 2016 album, ‘Know Where To Run’, was produced by Barry himself and recorded in Brighton with Paul Pascoe, whilst WTNSS mixed and provided additional production at the legendary Dean Street Studios. The concept behind the album emerged when Barry started taking photos during a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds North American tour, playing with the idea of traversing different states of the human condition and different states across America. The result was an audio / visual project inspired by these pictures, with the record being presented alongside a curated photobook.
The reissue of ‘Know Where To Run’ is released alongside ‘I Will Set Free’, following the release of ‘Stranger On The Sofa’, ‘Back To The Cat’ and a run on vinyl of Barry’s latest EP, ‘Steal Away’.
“It’s brassy, vivid, edgy, dramatic and propulsive - in short, highly cinematic.” - Northern Soul
“The album spans everything from prog rock to psychedelia to crooning, but if there is a thread throughout [Barry’s] work, it’s an outsiderness - documenting desperate characters” - The Guardian
“‘Know Where To Run’ is probably as good an introduction to this peripatetic musician as you’re ever likely to need. Just make sure to expect the unexpected.” - Clash Magazine
LP on silver vinyl with 36-page large format booklet of Barry’s photos. Digital download included.
