I forgot to mention he was 63. I actually just picked up "singles going steady" today for 5 bucks on cd today at a local record store(along with the Beatles "let it be"(6 dollars)and Def Deppard's "high and dry"(also 5 dollars).  Anyway, I only have a few other punk(or punkish)cds in my collection(the others being one by Husker Du and two by Pere Ubu). So far I like the Buzzcocks' cd. Anyway, again RIP. 

I've heard of the Damned of course but not the Skids so I guess I'll have to look into them.

Hardy Fox also known as Charles Bobuck, co-founder, composer and long time associate of The Residents and The Cryptic Corporation.

"It is with great sorrow and regrets that The Cryptic Corporation announces the passing of longtime friend and associate, Hardy Fox. As president of the corporation from 1982-2016, the company benefitted from Hardy’s instinct for leadership and direction, but his true value came from his longtime association with The Residents. As the group’s producer, engineer, as well as a co-creator and collaborator on much of their material, Fox’s influence on The Residents was indelible; despite any formal training, his musicality was nevertheless unique, highly refined and prolific. Blessed with a vital sense of aesthetics, a keen ear, and an exquisite love of the absurd, Hardy’s smiling face was a constant source of joy to those around him. He was loved immeasurably and will be missed dearly.

After a series of recent health problems, Hardy succumbed to a brief illness, He is survived by his husband, Steven Kloman. An announcement regarding memorial services will be forthcoming."

A few weeks back but gotta mention Chas Hodges 28 December 1943 – 22 September 2018 of Chas & Dave..
A real character, a really good piano player and his book 'Chas & his Rock n roll allotment' is a great read- he and Lemmy should have got together! Maybe they can now!

RIP Chas!

ClapEmbarrassedThumbs Up That pretty much sums it up for me!

The other tv programme my daughter loved was Bodger and Badger.. we saw them 'live' (she really wanted to be a puppeteer when she was about 7) on a number of occasions including at Glastonbury festival and Cropredy! Apparently Badger loved mashed potato(!!?!)ConfusedWacko

RIP John Cunliffe, creator of Postman Pat and Rosie & Jim; at very least for the great joy his programmes brought my daughter growing up :)

^Sorry to hear of this. In prog circles, Geoff Emerick had mixed the tapes for Triumvirat's Spartacus album in the spring of 1975. RIP.

Beatles recording engineer Geoff Emerick dies age 72. Emerick engineered the albums Revolver, Stg. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour and Abbey Road.
 
 Geoff Emerick, the audio engineer best known for his work with the Beatles, has died aged 72 following a heart attack.

Emerick began working as an assistant engineer for EMI Records in the early 1960s when he was 15 years old. In 1963, he first encountered the Beatles when he was a tape operator on an overdub session for Misery and Baby It’s You. Three years later, aged 20, Emerick was promoted to engineer on the first session for the band’s album Revolver. On the song Tomorrow Never Knows, John Lennon asked Emerick to make his voice sound like “the Dalai Lama singing on a mountain”, as Emerick told Variety last year.

Of the invitation to work with the group, Emerick told The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions author Mark Lewisohn: “That took me a little bit by surprise! In fact, it terrified me … The responsibility was enormous but I said yes, thinking that I’d accept the blows as they came.”

Giles Martin, son of the late Beatles producer George Martin, described Emerick as “one of finest and most innovative engineers to have graced a recording studio … We have all been touched by the sounds he helped create on the greatest music ever recorded.”

Midge Ure, whose band Ultravox worked with Emerick on their 1982 album Quartet, called him “a lovely, quiet, unassuming man who helped change the way music was produced”.

Emerick also worked on Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beatles (AKA The White Album). He briefly quit working with the group during the White Album sessions due to his unhappiness with the tense studio atmosphere. “The expletives were really flying,” he told Lewisohn. However, Emerick would mix songs on the Yellow Submarine album and returned full-time – at Paul McCartney’s request – to work on Abbey Road.

Emerick later worked on various McCartney solo albums, including Band on the Run, for which he won a Grammy. Emerick also worked with Kate Bush, Elvis Costello, Art Garfunkel, Split Enz and Judy Garland.

 

In 2006, Emerick published a memoir titled Here, There and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles. “What might have been a dry accounting for gear heads pulses with ‘Damn, I didn’t know that!’ narrative glee,” wrote Rolling Stone. However, fans criticised Emerick for dismissing George Harrison and Ringo Starr’s contributions to the band, calling Rubber Soul “not especially noteworthy” and the White album “virtually unlistenable”.

Abbey Road Studios MD Isabel Garvey described Emerick as “a true pioneer of the recording industry”. “His contribution to some of the world’s greatest musical recordings and his impact on popular music and audio technology is immeasurable.”

The British duo Field Music paid tribute to Emerick’s development of the studio as an instrument. “As much as anyone, Geoff Emerick ushered in a new era of recording, where the studio was a tool to be used and abused, as long as it led to making something new. If all he’d ever done was record Revolver, Sgt Pepper’s and Abbey Road, he’d still be one of the very greatest recording engineers there has ever been.”
