    Absolutely gutted. CC is one of my ultimate heroes & had the pleasure in seeing him many times. in recent interviews promoting his recent work he’s alluded to ‘changes’ in the last couple of years but was still talking about new releases included a 2nd Telefis album & possible tours. A major talent gone far, far too young. Viva Dead Ponies.

    His form with Villa got him to Mexico 86, but his head was turned & as soon as he got back he was trying to engineer a move as he didn't want to endure another relegation battle. As our numbers we short & squad relatively young, Turner had to pick him. Generally showed disinterest & limited effort culminating in a game where he under-hit a back pass resulting in a goal, with no remorse at all. He eventually got his move to Spurs, promptly turned into the midfield engine we thought we bought, scored twice against us & we went down by Easter. Not bitter.

    Political Frailty

    First hit of the year - sadly my local MP for eons. Always looked at deaths door. True blue who pandered to the Aldridge middle classes, & had no idea where Brownhills was. His replacement Wendy Morton isn’t an improvement.

    Reports on Twitter Henry Woolf has died. Star of many films, stage & TV but to me he’ll always be the creepy bookshop owner on Words & Pictures.

    Apparently a plugger went into a record shop near me saying ‘have you heard the new one from Bob State?’. Could be an urban myth that happening in every town, but funny all the same.

    Heaven 17's Martyn Ware revealed for the first time on his Electronically Yours podcast that Ian Craig Marsh had issues with mental health over time, then literally disappeared from the band never to be heard of again in the late 90s. The comment centered around the failed 1988 album Teddy Bear, Duke & Psycho, & the nicknames given to the band by Terence Trent D'Arby when the produced his Introducing the Hardline According To... album a couple of years before. Psycho was Marsh. Ware made an apology for the misguided nickname. Rumours were Marsh went into teaching on the south coast, but have never been substantiated. Heaven 17 recently played the first 2 Human League pre-Dare albums Reproduction & Travelogue in full recently during 1 off shows in Sheffield & London, with Marsh, Oakey & Wright being thanked heavily for what they produced. Hope was Marsh might re-surface, but it wasn't to be,
