Sad to say that Pearls Before Swine's mainman Tom Rapp has died folloiwng a battle with pelvic cancer. I've loved his albums since I discovered a dodgy copy of the debut 'One Nation Underground' on Todmorden market 30-odd years ago and basically bought it because it had a Bosch sleeve and looked distinctly 'psychedelic'. And as far as I was concerned it was (companion to many a 'shroom trip in the late eighties) though apparently Rapp had experienced nothing stronger than Lucky Strikes at the time of its recording. A criminally overlooked songwriter in my opinion. Rest in peace Tom.
