Zero: A Martin Hannett Story 1977-1991 CD

One of the most prestigious compilations ever, a tribute to the late great Martin Hannett, the man who more than any other producer established the sound of the immediate post-punk era. The Man Who Was Manchester produced every important post-punk band that emerged from the city's depths (apart from the Smiths) - the Buzzcocks, Magazine, John Cooper Clarke, Jilted John (aka John Shuttleworth) Joy Division, New Order, Durutti Column, Stone Roses and Happy Mondays, almost all of whom are included here. He also did OK with some right Southern nancies as well- the Psychedelic Furs, Kitchens Of Distinction and the Only Ones all felt his golden touch, not to mention giants such as like Nico and U2 (well, OK, not too sure about the second one). Everything from punk to New Romantic to dance music is here, and it's a mark of the man that his name is associated with the records as much as those of the bands themselves. Ace's first 80s compilation, given the full treatment with liner notes from James Nice and large quantities of memorabilia. Cover art by Andrew Prinz of MAHOGANY. Track list: 1. Boredom 2.
