A Black day indeed...

Many will know that today's the second anniversary of the death of David Bowie but it's also the date on which Colin Vearncombe (aka Black) suffered the devastating brain injury (in a car crash) that ended his life a couple of weeks later. I'm reasonably convinced that, had he lived, Colin was ripe for rediscovery. Of course Wonderful Life's a pretty great song to be remembered for but his entire back catalogue's littered with low key but mournfully beautiful tracks, like this little gem:

"Life should never feel small"...wise words. RIP.
