Autonomy: The Productions of Martin Rushent

Gary Crowley curated compilation

Autonomy is part of Ace Records’ ongoing Producer Series and celebrates the work of Martin Rushent.

Curated by broadcaster Gary Crowley, the 19-track compilation works it way through his productions in the post-punk era for bands such as The Stranglers, XTC, The Buzzcocks and Generation X before moving into the synth-pop era with the likes of The Human League, Altered Images and Hazel O’Connor.

This is a CD release and the booklet offers Crowley’s sleeve notes, quotes from many musicians and producers who worked with Rushent along with poignant memories penned by his children, along with some candid photos that show Rushent inside and outside his beloved studio habitat.

Autonomy: The Productions of Martin Rushent will be released on 28 July 2023 via Ace.
