Oedipus Schmoedipus features collaborations with Pulp's Jarvis Cocker ('Set the Controls for the Heart of the Pelvis'), Nick Cave ('The Sweetest Embrace') and Billy Mackenzie ('Achieved In the Valley of Dolls'). This record explores the 'Oedipus Complex', with Barry describing it as 'a sexual psychoanalytical journey examining mother and son relationships in a somewhat humorous, yet dark way'. Since lending his talents to Magazine and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Barry Adamson has released a series of solo albums ranging in different musical genres. Viewed as the finale of an 'unconscious trilogy' following 'Moss Side Story' and Mercury Prize nominated 'Soul Murder', 'Oedipus Schmoedipus' showcases its composer's embrace of various styles, moving between ambient electronics, cool jazz and elements of hip-hop.
