I'm sad to report thedeath of Chris Counsell from Naked. Chris was the guitarist and driving force behind the band who released the excellent One Step Forward 7" on Bluurg and had their catalogue reissued on CD on Overground.

Chris died following an 18 month battle with a brain tumor and leaves a wife and two children.

Hugh Cornwell is touring the UK this month. The show consists of two sets, the first is his new album Hooverdam and the second a complete performance of Rattus in its entirety. Smart move! That'll pack the punters in.

I hope he brings a keyboard player in, otherwise it won't work nearly as well.

I saw Hugh at Rebellion 2008 and he was surprisingly good, but then rather smartly he played a punk set, unlike The Stranglers who headlined an earlier one and didn't and consequently bombed.

The dates are:

13th NOV - NEWCASTLE, O2 Academy

14th NOV - GLASGOW, ABC

20th NOV - LONDON, O2 Academy Islington

21st NOV - OXFORD, O2 Academy

27th NOV - MANCHESTER,  Academy 1

28th NOV - BIRMINGHAM, O2 Academy
