Adrian Borland was one of the most intriguing figures of London's punk era of the late '70s. Literary, musically gifted, and intense, he created excellent punk and post punk music that never attained the commercial success it deserved. His bands included The Outsiders and the Sound, and he released solo projects with various collaborators. The excellent little Canadian label The Beautiful Music soon will be releasing There Must Be A Hole In Your Memory, a tribute to the music of the Sound and Adrian Borland. All tracks on the album are taken from releases by the Sound or Adrian Borland, except for two tracks that are found on releases by other bands that included Borland.
I may have more on this project in the near future, but I'd like to share one of the tracks with you because if the rest of the album is as good as this, it will be worth including in your collection. The track is "Party of the Mind", and it is performed by the inimitable Robert Scott, frontman of The Bats, bass player for The Clean, and a solo artist as well.
