RIP David Berman.

I think they removed it. Decided it wasn’t tasteful? I read it a few hours after the link was posted and there were no details. The NME on the other hand had kept it in.

It doesn’t?

Yeah they have removed the details it since I first posted. Sorry to @zygotic if my reply seemed snarky as a result

I’m putting on a David Berman tribute night where bands are covering his songs (Honkies, Cairan Dwyer and MIchele Stodart, Viewfinder, Agro Swan) and Joe Dunthorne and John Osborne are reading his poetry. It’s on the 17th of Sept and all proceeds go to mind. You can find the event info on the Brixton Windmill website.

Been listening to his stuff a lot more again since his passing. I’d never seen the vid for Random Rules and i love it, one of those nineties vids where not much happens but it just fits the song so perfectly:
