yea its nuts, definitely will be waiting on the full story to come out..

Either a police cover-up over a struggle or he had lost his marbles on coke is my guess, hard to believe it though..

very sad whatever, glad I saw him last year even if it was a pretty terrible

RIP

Sad. My flatmate is upset and annoyed that no-one seems to know who he is - thought he'd find some kindred spirits here.

I found that album in a charity shop last week and still haven't listened to it. Kinda don't want to now with this tradegy looming over it. But I guess that's the best way to remember him...

I was at the press conference called by Smiley Culture's family today.

It was quite upsetting, but also inspiring:

That's an insane explanation for his death. Absolutely unbelievable (in the literal sense).

Belated impressions of the march, plus the campaign's demands, Asher Senator's tribute tune and more police-sourced bollocks in The Sun:

Thanks for all the updates John. Police and News International still seem to be enjoying a cosy relationship then...
