The Sound (Adrian Borland)

It will be 20 years next week since Adrian took his own life at Wimbledon tube station.
One of the most underrated and criminally ignored bands this country has ever produced. I saw them many, many times, got to support them on a Dutch tour in 1981, and had the pleasure of getting to know the man a little in the late 80's.

Still one of the best live bands I've ever seen. Enjoy.

They were a cult sort of band. I remember their first records and they were as “likely to” as the Bunnymen or U2, it seemed. Not sure they wanted that, though - but I lost track of them after that. The Comsat Angels had that about them, as well. They weren’t really prolific, were they?

I think they wiped the floor with the Comsats. Prolific? Several albums. They were on Korova. I've always maintained that they might have been huge with a pretty boy frontman like McCulloch or Cope. And I'm not sure Adrian was easy to deal with, suffering from serious mental health issues, which preceded his very tragic end. Very talented man, though.
