By 8 September 2008 24

In the Canberra Centre this morning the car park was enhanced by a truly objectionable hammond organ recording. Shopping centres for a few years now have played music in their hinterlands intended to drive away scruffy teenagers without being too objectionable to grown-ups with money. So what ...
