What a talent - delighted to have discovered his music, annoyed with myself for not having done so earlier especially as I live in his home town of Derby and have long loved the music of Will Oldham who is a big fan of KC.

Had he not sadly dies of lung fibrosis in 2002, the highly talented Kevin Coyne would have turned 65 this month, and been eligible for his free bus pass. His 'Marjorie Razorblade' album of 1972 was extraordinary for his unaccompanied singing in a bluesy, raw and unrefined style, with some of the tracks being a volley of invective against the maltreatment of mental health patients. I return to the album every now and then, and whilst it is not easy listening, I find something else to admire in it every time I give it an airing. My favourite track is 'Marlene'. Coyne moved to Germany where, as well as musician, he was also successful as an artist and as a published writer.
