Adamski

Adamski (born Adam Paul Tinley, 4 December 1967) is an English record producer. Prominent at the time of acid house for his tracks "N-R-G" and "Killer", a collaboration with Seal which reached number 1 in the UK Singles Chart. As a youngster, he formed his first band The Stupid Babies when he was 11 and living in New Forest in England. Persuaded by his 5 year-old brother Dominic, they sent a demo tape to the indie label Fast Product Records, run by The Human League's manager Bob Last. The kiddie-punk tracks were released on a sampler. He performed with his other brother Mark Tinley, and Johnny Slut of the band Specimen, as Diskord Datkord. The band was signed to SOHO GIRL Records and released one 12" E.P. The Tinley brothers continued to work together even after the demise of Diskord Datkord. In the late 1980s, Adam Tinley adopted his stage name after the UFO enthusiast, George Adamski.

As a youngster, influenced by punk rock and John Peel, he formed his first band The Stupid Babies when he was 11 and living in New Forest in England. Persuaded by his 5 year-old brother Dominic, they sent a demo tape to the indie label Fast Product Records, run by The Human League's manager Bob Last. "Everyone thought that was a really precocious and strange thing for an 11 year-old to do," Adamski recalls "but I just thought that's what everybody did". The kiddie-punk tracks were released on a sampler. When alternative BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel started playing their song "Babysitters" the band caused quite a stir, receiving positive write-ups in music mags like "Smash Hits" and "Melody Maker". Nearly a decade later, Peel got hold of Adamski's debut album and played tracks from it on his show. It is not known whether Peel knew at that time of Adamski's debut album that he was in the Stupid Babies.
