Perhaps this month's issue of Mojo magazine might regenerate some interest....billed as "Mojo's Motor City Meltdown - DETROIT SPECIAL", it includes two pages on Detroit Techno. A miserly amount, I know, but this is meant to be a primer for those more Rock-orientated readers. It's quite amusing how they word it to be understandable to classic-rock fans. For instance, describing "Strings Of Life" as Techno's "Stairway To Heaven" or like 'Coldplay gone disco'. Or how about describing Richie Hawtin as 'techno's Elvis'? Ha ha. Well, if it helps get Detroit Techno back on the agenda, I'll live with it.
