We have just received the sad news that another early band collaborator, Martin Rushent, passed away yesterday aged 63. He started as a studio engineer in the early 70s and then moved on to production, mostly working at TW studios in Fulham, London. He worked closely with The Stranglers for a couple of years following their signing to UA in December ’76.
Martin produced the band’s first three albums Rattus Norvegicus, No More Heroes and Black and White as well as the string of singles. They parted ways during the recording of The Raven and he went on to set up his own studio Genetic. He worked with many other bands, notably the Buzzcocks, Generation X and the Human League. RIP
