:( I feel so sorry for him.
Is it about the Klaxons?
no, it's Andy Kershaw.
just said he'd been told to keep away from his 'partner' and had been jailed - is is the same story?
It is depressing.
is that they're still going...
What about the fat woman?
"Up close and personal"
It will be in that toilet.
he can hold a tune at least which is something you can't say for 89% of indie bands (oooooooh get me)
He was ok. Just rather unimaginitive like EVERY 'vocalist' at the moment. It's cos no one's actually brought up istening only to jazz/vocal stuff. You can't just pick it up when you're thirty.
I really hope he gets himself sorted out.
you have to feel sorry for his missus, and especially the kids. The whole thing's just profoundly sad.
I can't imagine what it must be like to put a restraining order on someone you used to love.
thought he did threaten to murder his ex partner.
I saw himn do a gig and he kept talking about the fact that his daughter had been taken away from him that week and all through his songs he kept saying 'I love you Mersey' (that's her name) and saying 'my daughters gone' and he finished with a version of 'Along Again Naturally' - now THAT was a sad night.
Anyone reading this? KLAXONS
I want to read it!
People get restrained for a reason, or is it the fault of his partner for not doing as she was told?
How utterly pointless.. let people have their own lives in private... god...
but he is a person that a lot of people admire and respect, and he has disappeared from the radio. I guess people want to know.
he must have done something wrong?
so it must have all got horrible. sad for all of them.
when you have to go to court...
What next - will Nik* be done for something?
Yes yes I know they're not related.
Anyone read my Wylie anecdote - thought not you bastards.
put simply I hate you all.
It was cathartic for him no doubt but very distressing for the audience. Good gig. Underrated songwriter with shocking ligging track record.
I did read that. It was harsh.
it was about the time Kylie Minogue married Pete Wylie.
I thought it was interesting
its really annoying when your seniors at work are absolute fuckwits who talk bullshit bullshit bullshit and don't actually know what they're on about. Cunts.
As a recent father of a girl I felt myself getting 'emotional' writing that thing about Pete Wylie as it would destroy me to be away from her. Sorry not very KLAXONS of me but I do have a central nervous system.
and he's really 'yorkshire' bitter about being binned from Radio 1. Still at least he did look genuinely distraught when he was interviewed on the day Peel died which put things into perspective.
i have no respect for anyone who drink drives...
i mean, drink driving and stalking are things i'd condemn but they're not the sort of things that i imagine he'd do for shits and giggles, so he's obviously emotionally wrecked. i quite like him and he did some good compilations and the like. And helped Peelie when Sheila was admitted to hospital during the Man T-T Races. And i still listen to the Half Man Half Biscuit sessions his show did a few years ago.
