The case for the defence:
- their cover of Bunny Wailer's "Love Fire", and its remix by Lee Perry;
- Chris Joyce and Tony Bowers being the original Durutti Column, before leaving Vini Reilly to form The Mothmen, and subsequently hooking up with Mick and co.
- Simply Red's Tim Kellett later playing with The self-same Durutti Column
- Adrian Sherwood saying that Mick Hucknall was the best voice he'd ever worked with;
- Blood and Fire Records (of which Hucknall is co-owner).
Provided below are a couple of tasters: King Tubby's In Fine Style from Dub Gone 2 Crazy, and Jah Hucknall himself in a Blood and Fire remix of the execrable Ghetto Girl.
