Wow. I can't believe this. 64, is way too young. And, Pete's right....He was a brilliant musician and, he brightened my life, on quite a few 45's, or tracks I have, on CD.

RIP. Sad Sad


Some of my favourites by Wire:

Off the "Gay Jamaican Independence Time" LP

A brilliant compilation, of Duke Reid productions!

Inyaki over on Pama said he'd been working with him just recently and that he lived in my old stamping ground of Streatham.

I thought, he'd been highly active, as of late....I feel like this is akin, to Ronnie Davis' passing on. Sad
