Dead Celebrity

And also this second article from today’s paper.

A real loss of a great guy and fantastic guitarist. Dr Feelgood were just unbeatable in the Wilko/Lee Brilleaux days.

I’ve always loved this particular live clip of the Feelgoods playing in a small town square in France to a bemused audience of locals. The band do not care - they just do their thing

This is also a great TV piece (the on screen text was added many years later)

And this is even better.

I’ll stop now - there’s too many clips. Search on Youtube and indulge yourselves.

Oh - and try to find Oil City Confidential, if you can.

Never seen it but it keeps coming up in my Watchlists. Is it the good kind of trashy?

Absolutely! It is trash of the highest order and has a scene where the party argues about whose fault it is they are in prison that could have come out of my RPG campaign.

There is another scenethe scene…which I will not spoil

It was terrible.

But in a fun, stupid 80s way, so that’s OK, and I also learned over a dozen synonyms for Wench; I’m not so sure about that… :wink:

My friend and I saw Cyborg in the theater. By the time the final battle was occurring onscreen, we were just having a great old time impersonating Fender and roaring at each other in an otherwise empty theater.

I can see the appeal, all you need to re-enact Akira is two people to alternatively shout “Tetsuo!” and “Kaneda!” at each other.

His death was announced on Monday in a statement from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), where he had been working as an associate professor at the College of Fine Arts.

What a good guy, passing his extraordinary talent along like that.
