In attesa che venga ultimata - anche con il suo zampino - la versione in inglese del poderoso libro di Aymeric Leroy L’école de Canterbury (Le mot et le reste, 2016), Phil Howitt di Facelift ospita al suo blog le acute osservazioni di Marc Hadley, musicologo e musicista competente in materia, amico tra gli altri di Phil Miller e al suo fianco nelle sue penultime e ultime vicende musicali con il gruppo The Relatives. Del valore del lavoro di Leroy dice senz'altro: "This oeuvre will be the primary source for historical record and critical evaluations of the music in the decades to come. Perhaps its main achievement is to have provided a reliable set of musical biographies of the bands and artists set within a well-researched chronology. Those who love this music must offer Mr Leroy a vote of thanks - he has been the first to accomplish what would have been a daunting task for any musical author or musicologist".
