Beast of Burden
Hey, don't you be slagging off the Straits and the Sprouts. That's classic gear.
Sheffield had ABC, Human League, Heaven 17, Cabaret Voltaire, Warp. I like all that more than anything from Manchester. I love Juice Box but that doesn't seem like 'Manchester' music to me, more like a London outpost, a bit like DJ SS in Leicester and Roni Size in Bristol. They were making music that was being played in raves all around the country, but it was essentially a London style.
