    Martin Hannett

    brilliant, brilliant post. seems churlish to take issue with it really, but i will on two points: 'rock' and conservatism, as i don't think this quite gets it. i mean there IS something very sun sessions about hannett, cavernous echo for the sake of the epic, mythic- but then at the same time...
