Adam Franklin Biography
Live shows were known for being loud and hypnotic with soaring, hook-laden tunes about UFOs and driving through the desert in the middle of the night etc blah blah. Since Swervedriver 'went into orbit' in 1999, Adam has taken in a number of different stylings on six releases under the name Toshack Highway and one appearnace on a compilation album as Adam Franklin.
Sometimes a full band sound with acoustic/electric guitars, electric keyboards and bubbly moogs played through guitar effects pedals - somebody described the first album as 'Spacefolk', there's a couple more words to throw in the air - sometimes a much more back to basics affair - just Adam on his own playing simple melodic pop songs accompanied by the warm glow of the compression of the tape machine - sometimes a little electronic and sometimes a little bit psychedelic, a little bit country, a little bit rock'n'roll. You know, whatever.. Just take a listen.
A seventh release, a full-length album called Bolts of Melody, is now available.
