Had never seen this one before - Annabel Lamb's cover of 'Heartland' with Adrian playing some typically incendiary guitar:

A bargain at twice the price!

two years pass...

It'll be 20 years gone this April, I still miss his musical presence.

Listened to "Last Days Of The Rain Machine" for the first time since, probably, it came out, which was the year following his death. It was too hard to listen to this and the other posthumous work at the time. Now it just sounds glorious with its stripped down voice and guitar demos.

Gerald, the only post-Sound stuff of Adrian's I have is Alexandria and Cinematic — what else would you recommend?

"Beautiful Ammunition" and "5:00 AM" are fantastic, the former is devastating at times as Adrian can be, but the latter is quite hopeful and uplifting.

You also need the first two White Rose Transmission albums he did with Carlo Van Putten of The Convent ("White Rose Transmission" and "700 Miles Of Desert"). Adrian wrote most of the music and added backing vocals while Carlo handled the main vocals but it's all in the same vein as the rest of his work.

Brilliant. Thank you.👍🏽

I'll plug the three Honolulu Mountain Daffodils albums - some of Adrian's best feedlback/blasting guitar.
