William Adamson – Under An East Coast Moon LP.
Reviewed by Kevin Pearce here.
Live at the Caught by the River Social Club, London, on 4 June.

Wire at The Lexington, Parquet Courts at The Garage, William Tyler, Pye Corner Audio and Jon Brooks on the stereo.
French zombies. Mogwai soundtrack. Channel 4 next month.

Underworld’s Karl Hyde has been extremely busy over the last few months – rehearsing a phenomenal live band (gutted they couldn’t do No 6 with us, next time maybe); making a film with longtime Caught by the River collaborator/friend Kieran Evans (the trailer is linked above) and putting together “>a gorgeous and transcendent mix for 6 Music which we can’t stop playing. Oh, there’s an LP due at the end of this month too – that’s ace too.
