RIP.

I was listening to Spirit of Eden again for first time in ages just yesterday.
A superb album.

I listened to Colour of Spring three times over the weekend- having just bought it on vinyl in Freebird last week. Terrible news

RIP. Love Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock. Two albums unlike anything else I've ever heard.

There was always the vague hope of something new - sadly not to be. The pop stuff was great and the later work was pure genius. RIP.

He was only 64. Particularly sad as he'd retired from music to live a quiet life with his family.

Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock are rightly lauded as groundbreaking albums, but I also think The Colour of Spring is as good an alt-rock album as any released in the 80s. If you haven't seen it, check out their performance at the Montreux festival from 1986 on YouTube, they were a cracking live band and Hollis is a great vocalist/frontman.

the "Natural History" compilation is a good chronological summary of their career.

of their actual albums, probably "The Colour of Spring" which is the midpoint between their poppy early material and the more experimental direction they went in afterwards.

Damn I was sure when his family were raised we would here from him again.
A great loss, RIP.

Brilliant band. Condolences to his family and hopefully this opens his work up to more people.
