What genuinely shocking news it was to hear that such a unique figure like John Hannon had passed on. As well has producing great music himself under various guises , he also ran No Recording Studio through which so many artists have walked and have been guided by his very thoughtful, intelligent but understated approach. He bent over backwards to help the Doomed Bird do the last EP and if it sounds good it is because of him working his magic. His whole approach really made an impression on me. So it was unexpected and it makes you think that there isn’t a great deal of rhyme or reason to how things happen. Very sad news.
