The multi-faceted British artist Rob Gallagher a.k.a. Earl Zinger and lately as William Adamson, has been actively involved in the music spheres since the late 80s. Gallagher is best known as the singer of acid jazz band Galliano formed in 1988. Their biggest success was in 1994 with the album The Plot Thickens which peaked at number seven in the UK album charts. The later project - Two Banks of Four was formed around the talents of Gallagher and Dill Harris erstwhile Senior Demus & Earl Zinger. Two Banks of Four gathered together a group of sympathetic musicians including saxophonist Chris Bowden and Scratch Pervert Tony Vegas amongst others, to create an attractive mix of jazz and dance grooves.
The amazing Gallager also worked with artists like Jazzanova, United Future Organization, UFO, Oi Va Voi, Rupert Huber, Jazztronik, Rodney Hunter, Gilles Peterson, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Koop and Kruder & Dorfmeister.
The former talisman of acid jazz pioneers Galliano travelled an impressive journey as an artist which brings him into 2013 under his new name - William Adamson, and brings us the release of his new album Under An East Coast Moon, released by Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings and produced by Two Banks of Four. The songs in the album tell fragments of meaningful stories that have grown out of a small region in Suffolk, known for its ancient burial grounds and its nowadays inadequate World War 2 sea defences.
