"The Sound" of Adrian Borland: Post-punk/new wave band The Sound (1979-1988) is a clear example of the ovelooked and underestimated music brilliance of singer, guitarist and songwriter Adrian Borland and his bandmates.
Progressing from the punk movement, in 1980 The Sound gave the world a masterpiece breakthrough album, "Jeopardy" and songs such as the post-punk anthem "I Can`t Escape Myself" and the new-wave-meets-rock-n-roll "Words Fail Me", followed by four more albums. Though critically acclaimed, The Sound never found the commercial success and the music press coverage they deserved, choosing to move away from mainstream norms. They split up in 1988 and later on Adrian Borland, suffering from severe depression, took his own life by throwing himself in front of a train at Wimbledon Tube Station…
