Steven Wells R.I.P.

June 25, 2009

I’ll leave it to his contemporaries to write the perceptive, insightful, emotional stuff.

ET has collected a list of tributes here.

There’s also the ever brilliant WSC forum too.

In James Brown’s piece he says “Anything loud or unhip became his domain” which seems particularly astute in the context of the few measly scraps I can offer.

Carter USM, Jesus Jones and finally, perhaps fittingly, Snuff.

Snuff said.

Indeed.

    Nice one for these mate, glad someone has gone to the effort.

    Mentioned (I think) in me own shitty tribute ( http://oldrope.wordpress.com/2009/06/25/in-memory-of-steven-wells/ ) that it would be good to see some stuff archived, but then realised that I think most of my old copies of the NME must have long since gone. There were piles and piles at me mum’s I reckon but that was many years ago and, knowing her, will have been lashed out the day I turned 18 and left home!

    He’d probably have emailed me a bollocking if I had done it anyway, but I reckon secretly he’d have been chuffed

    Nice one anyway
