The Martin Hannett Story

Hannett If you've never heard of Martin Hannett, you've certainly heard some of his music. Hannett's productions graced many of the leading lights of what's now known as "post punk", in particular, those from the emerging Manchester scene.

Hannett produced virtually every name Manchester band from the late 70s - the Buzzcocks, Magazine, Joy Division, New Order, the Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays, plus many who never quite made it. Throw in acts like the Psychedelic Furs and U2 and you've got quite a selection of music to choose from for this collection.

The Martin Hannett Story: 1979-1991 mixes the big names with more interesting, hard-to-find tracks to give a really well-balanced appraisal of the man's work. Add to that some in-depth sleevenotes and some nice examples of memorabilia and you've an album very worthy of your consideration.

The Martin Hannett Story is available now.
