More Press for the "Save Hanover Studios" Petition!!

WOW!! yet another mention of the online fan petition to save Hanover Studios (see article below). great work, everyone! i think it's a pretty safe bet that the band has heard about the petition.... please go and sign if you haven't done so already!

here's the article:
Dotmusic: Hall U2 Can't Leave Behind
http://www.dotmusic.com
January 17, 2002
From Dotmusic:

HALL U2 CAN'T LEAVE BEHIND

A petition has been launched by U2 fans demanding the local council
do not demolish the band's legendary but seemingly doomed Dublin
studio, dotmusic can report.

The Irish rock heavyweights have been involved in a prolonged dispute
with the Dublin Docklands Development Authority, over plans to
demolish the Hanover Quay complex.

It follows the DDDA's move to issue compulsory purchase orders on
properties in the area, including the band's recording HQ.

Now fans are claiming the studio, which U2 own and used to record three
albums, including last year's 'All That You Can't Leave Behind', is a site
of cultural import. The petition has been launched at
petitiononline.com/savehs/

Their move is backed-up by comments from U2 and their manager Paul
McGuinness, who has reacted angrily to the DDDA describing the group
of buildings as "old sheds".

He commented: "We moved into this area before it was fashionable or
profitable and U2 being there has affected the perception of the area. It's
also a great place to work and we have no wish to move.

"I think it's outrageous that the DDDA should sweep in with a compulsory
purchase order at this stage without taking account of our long-running
presence in the area".

On the subject of the 'sheds', McGuinness continued: "This is a fully
equipped state-of-the-art recording studio and also a rather interesting
modern building. It does not look much from the outside but the interior
was designed by the architect Felim Dunne."

However, U2 now appear to have reconsidered their position, suggesting
that if an viable alternative was offered to the band, they might be prepared
to move.

Their latest statement reads: "U2 have a great place to work at the moment
that we're completely happy with. We don't want to move but if the DDDA
can come up with something for us close by as part of their plan for this
unique area we'd certainly be interested.

"We're currently in discussions with them."

Yeah we'll show them what we're made of.

Question what's the link again? I wonder how many sigs we got now?

BTW good job Ally, last time I forgot to say it, I had heard it from Riddler and gave him the credit. But you wrote it so you deserve the the props. So *bows* all hail Ally.
