    A1: Music on the Great North Road #2
     


    This is from the opening chapter of The 17, Bill Drummond's hefty tome, just published, which describes his two-year project to jettison all that has gone before in recorded music and invent something entirely new - to be captured in the moment and then deleted. Notice that this wildly ambitious (and thoroughly ambiguous) work began in a modest hotel on the A1. That road... and music... there's something about it.
