Barry Adamson: “On the Wrong Side of Relaxation” (Moss Side Story, Mute 1988)

Barry Adamson’s Mute debut in the late 80s remains odd and interesting 25 years later. It’s by far less jazz-tinged and non-vocal compared to his later work, and this opening track from the album includes some signature wailing courtesy of labelmate Diamanda Gal├ís.

(Trivia: I actually sampled the last little bit of spoken audio in the track “Anathema” on my 2nd 12" release, Secrets II.)
