Hamish Kilgour (The Clean) RIP

This is worrying. I know that there are fans of the Clean and Bailter Space on here - he was also in an early incarnation of Luna.

Tragic news

Awful

Fuck sake

Gonna be another shit situation when I fully get into a band only after some tragic news like this

Fuck it all - sad news

RIP legend

Just tragic, RIP. Andrew Brough, Peter Gutteridge and now Hamish - all Flying Nun legends lost in similar circumstances.

RIP very sad. Greatest NZ band ever IMO.

‘The aim’ is a song that has been running on a loop somewhere in my head since the first time I heard it. Absolutely incredible.

If you like their sound I’d highly recommend the chills who are still touring (and are lovely fellas from my own experience of chatting to em)

Was that Avalanche in Edinburgh?

Indeed!

in my interactions the guy has always been personable enough that this comparison feels mean, but I also always got a Bernard Black vibe off him …

Bought Shotgun Blossom (on tape, for my walkman) in Edinburgh while hiking round Scotland on my own aged 19!
