If you look at some of the most exciting and innovative music that has been coming out of Sheffield in recent years – from the psychedelic electronic rock of The Moonlandingz, to the electro party pop that is International Teachers Of Pop, to the folkloric radiophonic avant garde Of Eccentronic Research Council – at the forefront of all these projects is a man called Adrian Flanagan. ADULT ENTERTAINMENT is his latest project where he has teamed up with Salford’s very own Queen of the Underground, and ‘ace face’ of Salford’s very own church of outsider rave, The White Hotel, singer and lyricist Charlotte Cannon.
Together, Flanagan and Cannon specialise in cerebral, erotic and electronic beat music. Adult Entertainment an intoxicating brew of early acid house, tape echo dub, 1920s Berlin cabaret and twilight zone club bangers with lyrics that are somewhere between William S Burroughs and Cosey Fanni Tutti. All performed by Cannon who looks like a genuine Warhol superstar in the making.
