Just reading on Facebook that Steve Lightle has passed away. An absolutely fantastic artist with one heck of a distinctive inking style.

Good Grud, no.

As a fan of 80's LSH he is a massive part of my early reading.

COVID has claimed actor John Richardson, star of Black Sunday and Hammer’s She and One Million Years BC
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

Mark Keds from out of Senseless Things has died at the age of fifty. The band are probably most notable around here for having most of their early record covers done by Jamie Hewlett but they were a lot of fun.

Oh wow I was into the Senseless Things - one of the first bands I was drawn to when I started to raid my brothers record collection because of the Jamie Hewlett covers. Fun band and Mark Keds has passed far too young.

Aw, I'm sorry to hear that. Funny, that grebo scene, of which Deadline was a champion, barely gets a mention these days compared to things like Britpop and obviously grunge. But the Senseless Things, Neds Atomic Dustbin and PWEI were a massive influence on youth culture at the time. R, indeed, IP.

On a tangent, but to me PWEI were the biggest of the quoted bands (they certainly had enough T-shirts in the town I lived in) but Clint Mansell's post-Poppies career certainly takes the limelight.

Definitely far more a thing for me than Bitpop or grunge ever were. Sad news.

One of those things that fell between the fashionable cracks of Madchester and grunge I guess. Mega City Four were probably my favourite from that sort of scene. It must be more than ten years since their singer died too.

I’m still bitter about having my Neds T-shirt stolen at the Reading festival.

Thats mad, I was a huge fan of PWEI at the time, but completely forgot Clint Mansell was one and the same. His Moon soundtrack is on my go to playlist for work.
