Martin Rushent - A Top 9
Picked up on the news a little late that Martin Rushent died last weekend. Best known for the production he did on Dare by the Human League - which still sounds excellent today - as this list shows he was no one trick pony. Some great things on here.
I was aiming for a top ten and then decided to limit myself to one track per artist (and then cheated by including something from the remix album, Love and Dancing. They are all tracks I have owned at some stage (except Love and Dancing which was my sister's but much played). They are also in order. The Buzzcocks would certainly come with me onto my desert island and Sound of the Crowd would make it most weeks too.
Buzzcocks - Ever Fallen in Love With Someone (You shouldn't have fallen in love with)
Human League - Sound of the Crowd
Dr Feelgood - Milk and Alcohol
Altered Images - Happy Birthday
Stranglers - No More Heroes
The League Unlimited Orchestra - Hard Times
Hey Elastica! - Party Games
XTC - Are You Receiving Me?
The Associates - Waiting For The Loveboat
Love and Dancing can be listened to it's entirety here in Friends Eclectic on the top right hand side of this blog.
