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, band member (The Birthday Party, Visage) vocalist, engineer (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion), performance artist, multi-instrumentalist, and photographer – among other endeavors – Barry the bass player plied adventurous grooves and countermelodies with a sharp, resonant tone that helped define the early post-punk era which merged avant-garde, no wave, and industrial.
