Artist


HOUSE

Garry Cobain is one half of the British electronic act Future Sound Of London. He and fellow FSOL member, Brian Dougans, met in Manchester in the mid 80s, where they bonded over a shared love of electronic music. After a few small projects together, Cobain built his own studio and the duo started to release tracks under various aliases, before settling on Future Sound Of London, and thus embarking on a musical career involving electronica, acid house, psychedelia, trip hop, breakbeat and more.

FSOL’s 1991 debut single, the rave and club classic “Papua New Guinea”, reached number 22 in the UK singles chart, and was a major crossover success, spawning various remixes throughout the years since. It appeared on the duo’s dance-friendly debut album “Accelorator”; subsequent albums went down a more complex road.

In 2006, after nigh-on a decade out of the scene, the best of album “Teachings From The Electronic Brain” saw them explode back in to the public’s consciousness, including material from all their albums plus the significant singles that provided markers along the way.

Garry, normally the more vocal of the two, has often spoken about providing the feminine, lighter side to Brian’s more technological, masculine, programming side. The duo have also recorded and released material under the moniker Amorphous Androgynous, and it is this project which is currently proving to be the focus of their work, their psychedelic sound attracting the attention of Oasis' Noel Gallagher amongst others.
