Adam Green : London ICA
...as empty and shallow as a friendship that lasts for a day...
That, basically, is the essence of Adam Green. A young Johnny Borrell look-alike from New York who gained recognition with anti-folk, pro-weird fancy dress band Moldy Peaches, he trades on contradiction and controversy. He even has a song called 'Mozzerrella Swastikas'. Take also 'No Legs', which tonight Adam actually insists the venue is darkened for, just so that we will really listen to the words. As if the lines "there's no wrong way to fuck a girl with no legs/Just tell her you love her as she's crawling away"
