So sad and shocked at the passing of Lindsay Kemp. Shocked because Lindsay was one of those exceptional spirits that you feel would go on forever. He was a huge inspiration ever since I was a teen, introduced to me through listening to and reading about David Bowie and The Ballet Rambert with The Parades Gone By. He was there in spirit through my art college 'Performance Art' and experimental theatre days, he was the God of Mime and Movement, a Dancer and Choreographer creating dreamy spectacles with his wonderful troupe that included David Haughton, Francois Testory and the great Orlando amongst others. His piece Cruel Garden based on the poetry of Lorca with Rambert and the dancer choreographer Christopher Bruce directly influenced Torment and Toreros

Thank you to Nendie Pinto-Duschinsky who bought him further into my life. I had the privilege of a few memorable and magical moments with Lindsay.

We are losing so many 'one offs', originals and innovators who have been inspirational and influential to artists, musicians and many others of my generation. The World has lost more colour and today is more dull. Goodbye Lindsay and thank you.

Some years ago Marc lost a bag of Super 8 films. A lady called Sue got in touch to say she had found the bag and to contact her to secure its return. Unfortunately her phone number was lost so it was not possible to contact her. Obviously Marc would dearly love to get these films back so if you are Sue or know where she is, please get in touch by emailing kate@marcalmond.co.uk so that we can arrange collection. Thank you for your help.

Keychains & Snowstorms, which will contain 9 CDs and 1 DVD (and more than 50% of the music included will be previously unreleased material) packed into a 10" square box and accompanied by a comprehensive book of words and photos, is a genuine treasure trove of art-school experimentation, huge pop hits, ground-breaking remixes, reinventions and moments of piercing introspection.

Soft Cell will join Graham Norton on BBC Radio 2 this Saturday. In their first joint interview for over fifteen years Marc Almond and Dave Ball will be guests on BBC Radio 2's Graham Norton Show this Saturday (21 April).

This coming Saturday (21 April) is Record Store Day and as part of the celebrations Soft Cell will be releasing a special limited-edition 12" single featuring new extended versions of Say Hello Wave Goodbye and Youth.
