X- RAY AUDIO at THE BRITISH LIBRARY

Join us at THE BRITISH LIBRARY on February 9th to hear the incredible story of the cold war Russian bootleggers who risked imprisonment to make extraordinary records of the forbidden music they secretly loved. 

And we are very pleased to announce we will be joined for a one-off and very rare musical performance by underground maverick genius BARRY ADAMSON which will be cut directly to one of his own x-rays on our 1950s recording lathe and played straight back.

BARRY ADAMSON is a multi-disciplinary artist who rose to prominence as the bass player in Magazine and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. 

His critically acclaimed solo work has seen him 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’, he has composed music for TV series, adverts, computer games and an Olivier Award winning ballet performance. .
