In Darkness

Martin Rushent RIP

And so we bid a sad farewell today to Martin Rushent, the genius producer behind some of the greatest musical moments of the 1970s and 1980s.

The list of works for which he was responsible is staggering - T Rex Electric Warrior, The Human League Dare, Stranglers Rattus Norvegicus, No More Heroes and Black and White, Pete Shelley Homosapien - and productions for the Buzzcocks, Generation X, Altered Images, Hazel O'Connor and even Shirley Bassey!

RIP a musical legend.
