Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Martin Hannett Manchester Music 1977-1991

Today's 1st post is "Zero", a compilation of tracks linked by the maverick Manchester record producer, the late Martin Hannett. A diverse collection, kicking off with The Buzzcocks, through Wythenshawe's very own Slaughter & the Dogs, Magazine, Joy Division & New Order, U2, the Psychedelic Furs & loads more. Many of the earlier tracks are Manchester related, with a greater geographical spread as Hannett's reputation and renown grew. http://rapidshare.com/files/351640513/Zero__MartinHannettStory1977-1991.rar
