    Tom, thanks for The Use Of Ashes LP, one of my favourites ... RIP

    TOM RAPP R.I.P. 1947 - 2018

    Tom Rapp, founder and frontman of psychedelic folk band Pearls Before Swine, has died, a representative from Drag City has told Pitchfork. He died February 11. He was 70 years old. Rapp died while in hospice care at his home in Melbourne, Fla, his publicist confirmed to NPR Music. Tom Rapp formed Pearls Before Swine in 1965 with high school classmates in Florida. They released their debut record, One Nation Underground, in 1967; it was reissued last year by Drag City. Rapp released six LPs with various iterations of Pearls Before Swine, before embarking on a solo career that included four records. In 1999, the same year that he released his final solo album A Journal of the Plague Year, Rapp covered "After the Gold Rush" for the compilation This Note's for You Too! A Tribute to Neil Young. In addition to his musical career, Rapp was a civil rights lawyer. - Pitchfork

        The last two have upset me a bit. I only got into 'Tom Rapp' a couple of years ago and like RedX I've probably seen 'Sonny Akpan' staring with heavy blood shot eyes from behind a set of Congas.

        The NME has died if only in it's physical form although I've not read it since about 1995. I read such an arrogant article online ('Vice' I think) that was so up it's own back side it made me chuckle. Basically it was about how they 'Created a scene out of nothing' referring to bands like 'The Libertines', 'The Strokes' etc around the time the readership went up a little in the early 2000's. Talk about an inflated sense of their own importance. Only 'Kerrang' left now and going from strength to strength, say what you want about metal fans they are a loyal bunch who like reading a music weekly that doesn't constantly insult what they are listening to and tell them what they should be doing instead.

            Indeed. Sadly the Arena special on Ken isn't up on the Iplayer at the moment - but well worth a watch if you've not seen before.

              I was always a bit scared of Ken Dodd.
              I mean, I'm not happy that he's died or anything, but I feel a bit sorry for all the recently deceased celebrities who are in for a tattifilarious spot of tickling tomfoolery in heaven tonight.

                    Cecil Taylor pegged out a couple of days ago. A legend in this house even if I do wait until Mrs SK is out before playing his records- she doesn't insist on that I simply do it out of courtesy. I bought Tzotzil Mummers Tzotzil just last month. I'd always been put off at the idea of Cecil reading his poetry but it was pretty cheap and it turns out it's a great record.

                      Sad News. Funny there is a cat in the pic as I named our Oriental after him, true story. A giant of leftfield jazz.

                            Bill Maynard was on Pointless Celebrities last Saturday. Before the show started an announcer said "This episode of Pointless Celebrities was recorded before the recent sad passing of Bill Maynard"

                              He was grumpy and cantankerous enough while alive, a zombie Bill Maynard would be a nightmare.
