Ballad of the Band

Was interested to come across a piece on the Guardian music blog by Creation records supremo Alan McGee about Lawrence from Felt and later Denim. He really is one of the greats of the indie scene. Coincidentally I had been along to a talk by Grauniad journo Will Hodgkinson last week where he brought up Lawrence. Unfortunately his drug habit has put an end to his musical output and he now lives in a hostel, which is incredibly sad. It seems that artists like Jarvis and Belle and Sebastian had tried to sort him out and get him support slots, but he tended not to turn up. It's tragic what heroin has done to some of our great artists, you listening Mr Doherty?
