Terrible news.

A genius and a man who was all about the music.

Really sad.

Sad loss indeed,good to see it was headline news over here in england,
Probably one of the most important inspirations in the uk music scene.
808 owe him vastly.1st for championing Newbuild/qudrastate etc
In fact when we started the sessions for quadrastate it was for a Peel session
which he let us record in our own studio,(against bbc protocol) .
He was always up in Manchester checking out what was going on at that time
I had the pleasure of hanging out with him a couple of times,his knoledge was incredible when it came to music.. Plus he actually used to make a point of buying stuff from Eastern Bloc and Piccadily Records where he d hang out like a regular punter
