Nice to meet you Miss D. A great tribute to Wiz too.

Mega City Four were one of the most under rated bands of their time. Wiz was one in a million - he always had time for his fans, personally replying to letters and chatting before and after gigs. Their music sounds as good now as ever.

I was fortunate enough to meet him on a few occasions, the last being 24th November 2006 when he played with his latest band, Ipanema. He was back on top form and really exicted with their new material. They were planning to head into the recording studio next month to record their 2nd album.

There are a couple of sites worth checking out if you want to hear more of either band - www.myspace.com/ipanemarock (run by Lawrence, Ipanema's drummer) www.myspace.com/megacityfour (a tribute page run by fan Martyn John) and if you want to leave a message of condolence, or just want to see why he is held in such high regard go to http://www.furtive-mts.com/wiz/ or www.myspace.com/wiztribute

Tomorrow (18th Jan) would have been his 45th birthday. I'm going to raise a glass to his memory.

Very sad news. Couple of MP3s and links here:

I guess Tranzophobia is the album to listen to: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:9tzsa9ygi23f

Is their first and probably their best. If you're not already into any late 80s indie stuff like Neds, Snuff, or Carter etc then you may find it a bit dated. Was some of the first indie music I got into, so it'll always mean a lot to me. See what you think.

This was a month ago now but I only just found out, and I don't remember anyone on here posting about it at the time:

Tranzophobia has always been one of my fav albums, and the guy had such a great voice. Really wish I could have gone to a Mega City Four concert. RIP Wiz.
