This Interview with two thirds of the ZTT record label from 1985 is an interesting look back at the label that fostered Frankie goes to Hollywood , The Art Of Noise and Propaganda onto the mid 1980’s. Producer Trevor Horn and wife Jill Sinclair probably reveal more about the workings of the then fledgling label without the hyperbole of Paul Morley. It’s interesting to hear the role that Dave Robinson of Stiff records played in plugging the physical product of The Art Of Noise.
Other artists on their rosta at the time achieved less of a high profile impact including the French torch singing of Anne Pigalle and systems music of Andrew Poppy.Nevertheless they illustrated the high standards that were often set by the record label directors.
The interview is quite poignant as Jill Sinclair has been in an induced coma since 2006 following a tragic accident.
This interview is placed here with the greatest respect to her friends and family and honours the place of ZTT in music history. We all wish for her eventual recovery.
