I just read on Jeff Mill’s blog that he’s working on a special 10th anniversary release for “The Bells”. Damn, has it really been 10 years? Not that I heard it when it was first released (it was probably a year or two old when I first caught on, thanks to Jimmy turning me on to the wild & wonderful world of Detroit Techno) but it still seems like just yesterday.
On the other hand, it’s become such a classic that it feels like it’s just always been there. So the “Wow! It’s been ten years!?” is kinda offset by a sense of “Really? It’s only been ten years?”
