More Adventures For Geoff Barrow

A new project and fresh releases by Invada

More Adventures For Geoff Barrow | Music News

A couple of days after the news about his work in Quakers, Geoff Barrow is back on our pages once again. His working rhythm is truly enviable. Not satisfied with being the brains of Portishead and Beak>, producing other people's work and directing his label Invada, the man from B.R.I.S.T.O.L. keeps inventing new things to do.

His latest project answers to the name of DROKK and is inspired by the fictional city-state of Mega-City One and Judge Dredd, the comic character created in the late seventies by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra. Next to Barrow stands Ben Salisbury, soundtrack composer for the BBC. The results of their work together, very cinematic (it's music for an imaginary soundtrack revolving around Judge Dredd) and made almost exclusively with sounds taken from an Oberhiem 2 Voice synthesiser, will be released as an album on 7th May, via Invada.

In related news, it's been revealed that Barrow has obtained the rights to release the score of “Drive” on vinyl. Due out on 21st May, also, of course, on Invada Records.
