The hope of states was yet to come
I mentioned last year about how talented musicans always seem to die young when Elliott Smith died last year. Well today I heard that James Lawrence out of the band Hope Of The States has died in a recording studio in Bath. I brought their first two singles and whilst the music was excellent, I thought the packaging was brilliant and mailed the guy who did them. It doesn't seem clear as to why he died. Anyway a sad loss. Was looking forward to the album.

James Lawrence obituary

Seems like I start the new year on a sad note, that's Chinese New Year by the way which was yesterday. No doubt there will be loud celebrations on Sunday like in London China Town. Wrap up with the cold snap coming.
