Dave Kusworth, a Birmingham-born English rock singer and songwriter, died this past week. He was 60. Dave co-founded The Jacobites in the mid-80s with the late Nikki Sudden (d. March 2006). He played in or with a number of other bands (including T.V. Eye, The Bounty Hunters, The Tenderhooks, The Rag Dolls). He has an impressive discography, but, predominantly, it's on the CD format. You have to love that he retained his Exile-era Keith Richards' "look" throughout his four decades-plus as a rock romantic, lyrically and musically. If any of these tracks intrigue you, do the homework to discover more...

Thanks for the Dave Kusworth set & it's very sad losing a talent like him at such an early age of 60

Cheers Wally. Almost textbook, in some ways, his bowing out at such an early age for these times, given his back story. He leaves a lot of music worth discovering and revisiting.

I neglected to mention the tune by The Dentists in my rap, apologies for that...

And while on the subject of being neglectful, the track I announced by Marissa Nadler did not make it into the mix...

Thanks for the Idles. I love their Model Village trx, which sort of reminds me of the Fixer Upper by Yard Act.
