    Could be kidney damage after an overdose. Suicide attempt, perhaps?

    Could Sauro Toma even be considered a survivor? He was out injured at the time and therefore didn't travel with the squad on the date of their fateful flight.

    There's two bands with variations on that name: Firstly, Spirogyra, a UK acid-folk act associated with the Canterbury Scene. They put out three albums in the early 1970s to little success, and reformed a few year ago. Barbara Gaskin was the most notable member. Secondly Spiro Gyra, the US jazz fusion act. Former around the time the other act folded for the first time, still going. Had a big hit in the late 1970s with Morning Dance.

    Those two unique hits are mine. Unfortunately I’ve only a couple of other uniques, and one of those is a gamble.

    Crashing Companies

    There's one like that here too - it's been several French restaurants over the past few years with different names, with one relaunch keeping the same name as the previous one. It's now turned into a Chinese restaurant, which will probably keep going as there's no other Chinese restaurant in town. There's three Chinese takeaways, though, all on the same street! We've a Prezzo here, too. I've not heard through the local grapevine yet as to whether it's closing or staying open, but it's never busy when I pass. I believe it only opened in the first place after a branch in the next town closed due to a serious in the floors above.

    Crashing Companies

    One opened here a year or two ago in the building that had previously been a branch of Burton. I've never seen anyone in it when walking past. I suspect it'll be amongst the 94 closing.

    It was shown over here, originally by short-lived satellite broadcaster BSB, who didn't have that many viewers. It was later shown by satellite channel Sky One after Sky's merger with BSB, who again didn't have many viewers. I can't recall it being shown free-to-air, but it's possible that an ITV region may have picked it up to show locally.

    The Next Piper At The Gates Of Heaven

    Jazzwise magazine has recently tweeted that Tom Rapp of Pearls Before Swine has died. Can't find any other confirmation yet.
