The One and Only

Today, a tune by a man with true music pedigree.

Barry Adamson not only played bass with Magazine, he also was a temporary member of Buzzcocks, as well as working on both Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley’s solo projects, appearing on the first two albums by Visage, playing with both The Birthday Party and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, and remixing Grinderman, Depeche Mode and The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. He’s also contributed to the soundtracks of David Lynch’s “Lost Highway” and Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers”.

But it’s to 1996 we go for today’s tune, and to his “Oedipus Schmoedipus” album, which featured in the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die” book, and specifically to this groovy little number, which features, and was co-written by, your actual Jarvis Cocker:
