We were desperately, desperately sad to hear that Brown Bird’s David Lamb finally lost his year long battle with leukaemia this weekend.
There is a lovely and eloquent statement on the band’s website from his partner MorganEve, and we can only add our own condolences for her loss – it is truly a tragic turn of events.
For anyone who has stayed with MM for any length of time you will know how popular Brown Bird were with all those who have written for the blog, notching up almost twenty posts since we migrated to WordPress and many times prior to that too. They featured in many a best of the month round-up as well as end-of-year best of listings, and also featured prominently with the sublime Wrong Black Mare, when we reviewed the favourite songs we had discovered in the first five years of MM.
Like many, many, many others we will miss David Lamb – and may his music live on for a mighty long time.
