Pip Pyle RIP

Just heard the news that Pip Pyle, formerly of Hatfield and The North, Gong, National Health etc etc, passed away on Monday at the age of 56. Pip was a true exponent of the Canterbury sound in more ways than one. Not only was he a great jazz rock drummer, but he was also a great songwriter. "Fitter Stoke Has A Bath" from the mighty Hatfield's Rotter's Club is still one of the loveliest things I've ever heard.
A huge talent.
