      • To all - I have been asked to post this message from Ruth, Neil's sister.

        To everyone who has posted about Neil on the forum... you are an amazing, intelligent, kind, astonishing bunch of people. You wouldn't believe how much of a help it has been for me and mum and dad to read your eloquent, funny, incredibly moving comments on the site. I've just been reading some more and laughing and crying at the same time. Long may your community continue.

        I have always been so proud of my brother... proud of his originality, his loyalty, his humour, his determination to stick to what he knows is right and fair, his refusal to sell out and his artistic and musical talent. And I loved him so much.

        I will feel honoured to meet some of you next week and share some more stories in person. I also think your ideas for tributes to Neil are lovely.

        Words can't really express how much you've all helped us over the last few days. Thank you.

        Ruth Suddes
        If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

          • What a terrible loss. Too young. Here's to you Towny and your great mixes and taste in eclectic music x

            Maybe its downbeat with depressing themes and technically imperfect vocals but it is an excellent example of a downbeat mix with depressing themes and technically imperfect vocals

              Cheers for putting this up James!

              After listening to it, I think Neil's set alternates with some of the other DJ's on the night. From vague memory Neil basically played 60's/70's tracks, whilst the other DJ's played newer releases such as Rose Rouge (which starts the mix off)
              it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
              take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

              • I once mentioned to Neil how much I loved one of his own tracks that he'd put on one of his mixes... and in true Towny style a cd arrived in the post a few days later entitled Ten from Towny.

                Needless to say I still have this and given the go ahead from the proper source, I'd be happy to post up his songs.

                  • A quick google revealed this post on the Essential Modern Soul forum by Steve 'Jacko' Jackson regarding an LP that Neil turned up a track on that was then championed by Richard Searling and became big on the modern scene:

                    ...also great to hear Clydene Jackson again. I remember when my mate Neil Suddes first discovered that about 10 years ago as a 50p car boot purchase in Cambridge off an old JazzFM DJ (Martin somebody) who was selling up a good few of his vinyl LPs. He passed it to me, I passed it on to Ged up north, he put Searling on to it and Bam!! Instant monster LOL )


                    Typical Neil! I've lost count on the number of records he put me onto over the years.

                        Here are a couple of photos of some good times with Neil. He loved yellow, as evidenced by the yellow jumper

                            Really nice bit of writing that, mate.

                              Yes please. Does it have the Sweet Jams & Jellies track on it? That's a favourite of mine from Towny. He posted it on the board way way when. I should have it on a DVD-R somewhere but can't find it. Typically. Would love to hear any other tracks too.

                                It does have Sweet Jams and Jellies, and also the track Pete Um mentions on his webpage (great tribute BTW).

                                But I'm hesitant to put them up unless indicated that it's okay to do so though.
