Biography and career[edit]

The early years (1977–1980)[edit]

Gary Barnacle was born in Dover, England in 1959.[1]

He started playing in bands in and around the Dover area, with his father Bill Barnacle, his brothers Steve Barnacle and Pete Barnacle and their friend (Nick) Topper Headon. Then he moved, with his two brothers, to London in 1976 and began a career as a session musician. Barnacle performed the saxophone part in many songs and albums by The Clash. Early examples are "1-2 Crush On You", the B-side of "Tommy Gun" released as a single on 24 November 1978, and their version of Booker T. & the M.G.'s' classic "Time Is Tight", released on the 1980 extended play Black Market Clash. Both songs can also be heard on the 1993 compilation album, Super Black Market Clash.[2] He also played on their later albums Sandinista! released on 12 December 1980 as a triple album, the single This Is Radio Clash released on 20 November 1981 and Combat Rock released on 14 May 1982 through Epic Records. He was introduced to The Clash through their drummer, and school friend of Barnacle's, Topper Headon, and reportedly became involved in The Clash's infamous 1978 "pigeon shooting" incident.[3]

Barnacle formed a horn section in 1978 with trumpeter Luke Tunney, called the Hit And Run Horns (named after the band that they were members of at the time). In 1979 they added Annie Whitehead on trombone. These three played on many sessions together for the next 3 years or so (until Pete Thoms came in on trombone in 1982). Barnacle collaborated with The Ruts on their first two albums, both on Virgin label, The Crack, released in September 1979, and Grin & Bear It, released on October 1980. After the death of their frontman, Malcolm Owen, found dead from a heroin overdose on 14 July 1980 at the age of 26,[4] the band continued as Ruts D.C. (where "D.C." standing for the Latin term "Da Capo", meaning "back to the beginning") in a different musical vein.[5] Barnacle became a stable member of the band and they released two other albums, Animal Now in May 1981 on Virgin, and Rhythm Collision released in July 1982 on Bohemian Records. Ruts D.C. split in 1983.[6][7][8] During 1979–1980 he also contributed to M's debut album, New York • London • Paris • Munich, released in 1979, and to Sanity Stomp, released by Kevin Coyne in 1980.[9]

The 1980s (1981–1989)[edit]

In 1981, contributed to the debut albums by Positive Noise - Heart of Darkness, Stray Cats and In Trance as Mission by Simple Minds plus "Power and the Passion" by Midnight Oil and also performed saxophone on Rick Wakeman's 1984, a solo concept album based on the classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell.[9] But, one of Barnacle's longest associations has been with Level 42, with whom he has played on several albums, including the band's 1981 debut, the 1984 True Colours, the 1985 World Machine, and the 1987 Running in the Family. From 1990 to 1994 Barnacle toured with Level 42 and recorded two of the band's albums, Guaranteed and Forever Now.[9] The horn section he formed with British trumpet and fluegelhorn player, John Thirkell, for Level 42 is known as The Hen Pecked Horns.[10] Since then, Barnacle and Thirkell provided the horn section to many recordings, and, along with trombonist Peter Thoms, they formed The Phantom Horns, one of the UK's most respected horn sections that appears on a number of recordings from 1987 on.[11] They also recorded a widely acclaimed brass-sample CD Phantom Horns, which was re-issued by Zero-G as a double CD-rom in 2011. Equally impressive, and more comprehensive, was Brit Horns brass-sample CD featuring Gary Barnacle, Peter Thoms and Stuart Brooks, which was re-issued as a double audio/WAV CD by AMG in 2010. Both of these sample CDs have, and continue to be, widely used on commercial recordings worldwide.

In 1982, he and ex-Positive Noise singer, Ross Middleton, formed an electropop duo called Leisure Process. The Band released four singles on Epic label, two in 1982, "Love Cascade" and "A Way You'll Never Be", which featured Mark King and Phil Gould of Level 42, and two in 1983, "Cashflow" and "Anxiety". All four singles were produced by Martin Rushent.[9] In 1982, Barnacle also collaborated on Julien Clerc's Femmes, Indiscrétion, Blasphème, Mike Rutherford's Acting Very Strange, Marius Müller-Westernhagen's Das Herz eines Boxers, and with Visage on their second album. Two years later, in 1984, with his brother Steve already in the band, when Billy Currie and Dave Formula departed the band, Gary and Andy Barnett replaced them for what would become Visage's third and final album to date. Beat Boy, released in September 1984, produced two singles, "Love Glove" and "Beat Boy". A decision to make Visage a live band instead of a strictly studio-based project failed and the band subsequently split in 1985.[9]

In 1983, he contributed to Catch as Catch Can by pop singer, Kim Wilde (whom he dated in the mid 1980s),[12] and also to In Strict Tempo by Dave Ball, Private Dancer by Tina Turner. Barnacle later toured in Europe with "The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll" and participated in the recording sessions of her 1989 album Foreign Affair. He also appears in the 1983 edition of Drama of Exile by Nico, where he also played the drums, Right Now by The Creatures, Dalek I Love You by Dalek I Love You, Jerky Versions of the Dream the only solo album recorded by Howard Devoto, Secret by Classix Nouveaux, Vocabulary by The Europeans, C'est C Bon, the last pop album by Carlene Carter, Working with Fire and Steel by China Crisis, a collaboration that was repeated later in 1986 with the release of What Price Paradise. The year ended with the publication of the soundtrack for Educating Rita, a multi-award winning and nominated film based on Willy Russell's play of the same title, directed by Lewis Gilbert, and with music composed by David Hentschel.[9]

Elastica, and Influences, a solo album by Mark King of Level 42. But, another Barnacle's longtime association started that same year with Elvis Costello for whom he provided saxophone for Goodbye Cruel World,[14][15] and then, for Imperial Bedroom, released in 1987. He also appears on many of Costello's compilation albums.[9]

He also contributed to the releases of Red by The Communards, the debut solo album by former Soft Boys frontman Robyn Hitchcock, Banzai Baby by Sandii & the Sunsetz, Rick Astley's debut album.
