One of those grey, stay-indoors days, trying to be purposeful. Girls' belated thank you cards for birthday presents, Liz and I sorting out files, statements and tax returns... All to the soundtrack of some 80s cassettes I compiled in the... well, 80s. Unexciting stuff but vaguely satisfying.  

Sad though to hear that Martin Rushent died today, producer of Humam League's Dare and Love & Dancing - big favourites in the Elliott household and two of the most advanced examples of pop production ever - and that was 30 years ago. But he also engineered T.Rex, Gentle Giant and Curved Air before embracing punk and producing The Stranglers, The Buzzcocks, Generation X and Altered Images. Will be missed.
