What is Documentary Evidence?
Documentary Evidence is a blog containing reviews of Mute Records and related releases, along with interviews and other comment. It is based on the personal views, opinions and recollections of the author. It does not propose to be complete. It is not a discography site. I do not cover promos, the minutiae of release and catalogue information, releases from different countries, variations in artwork blah blah blah. This is about music and the people who made it. If you want the other stuff, you’ll find other sites that do that.
Documentary Evidence was established in 2003.
