Sublime record, featuring the maddest B side ever, famously covers by a The Rezillos
Someone Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight
is apparently The Rezillos best known song outside the UK.

as i seem to remember reading -
when MAC would play the song (written by Jeremy Spencer) which was
an Elvis parody, their tour manager would come out in a gold lame suit to
sing it, totally perplexing the hippies.

for whatever reason i thought Peter had died a few years ago.

the last single Peter did with Mac - The Green Manalishi has been often covered
and is totally timeless. it could have been from any point in the last 50 years.

Just heard about Denise. very briefly met her when she was singing with A Certain Ratio.
she was with ACR since the 90's. they must be heart broken...
lovely friendly person - the list of people she worked with says everything.

Jean Brankart (12 July 1930 - 23 July 2020)

Belgian cyclist Brankart was a Grand Tour contender in the 1950's.
a pro from 1952-60 Brankart was second to Louison Bobet in the 1955 Tour
de France (Charly Gaul was 3rd) winning two stages.
in 1958 Giro Brankart was second to Ercole Baldini and took the mountains jersey.

the '58 Giro had a stellar top ten : 3) Gaul, 4) L. Bobet, 5) Nencini, 6) Poblet,
7) Lorono, 8) Geminiani, 9) P Fornana, 10) Aldo Moser
(wow ! 4 Tour winners in top 5 )

Jean Brankart -French wiki.

Jean Brankart - procyclingstats.com (detailed career results)

it's disappointing that a cyclist like Jean Brankart passing gets so little notice
in English language cycling media.

Stephen Tawtaw (1963- 31 July 2020)

Captain and right back of the Cameroon football team that got to quarter finals
of Italia 90 World Cup.
Tawtaw played every minute as the Indomitable Lions beat Argentina,
Romania and Colombia before a thrilling 3-2 extra time defeat to England
(where they had led 2-1).
Despite also playing in USA 94 Tawtaw struggled to find a club abroad and earned
VERY little. he died aged 57 after being ill for sometime.

please read this Nigerian tribute which reveals how little cash came Stephen's way.

Cameroon’s Famous World Cup Captain, Tawtaw, Die...

Tawtaw isn't the first Cameroon player from Italia 90 to die, Benjamin Massing - who
was famously sent off in injury time against Argentina for clattering Claudio Caniggia -
died a few years ago.



also -
Dominique Aulanier (1973 - 31 July 2020)
A French football midfielder, Aulanier played mostly for St Etienne and Nice.
he died of a heart attack aged 46.
