If I was to construct the perfect opening sentence to a rock record press release, it would probably read something like, "Space, particularly inner headspace, was big news in the early 80s". It is perfect in the sense it sort of means something, it's sort of true, but it's also utter, utter meaningless crap. But to have the balls to follow that up with a sentence about "derelict inner city landscapes" shows true genius. The phrase "physical and mental wastelands" is employed before we've got to the third sentence. This is premium level horseshit. And so it goes on. And on. And on. Respect is due to whoever ground this head-spinning wonder.
