Genuinely shocked to hear of the passing of Mark Hollis, of Talk Talk, at the age of 64.

Saw them in '84 at Birmingham Odeon having won a pair of tickets in a local newspaper competition. Had seen then support Duran Duran in '82 at the start of their career.

Like a fine wine they matured over time with the Colour of Spring, then the sparse and textured final two albums which seem to have garnered a better critical reception over the passing years than they did at the time.

Hollis did a solo album in '98 then withdrew from music.

A great talent has been lost. RIP Mark.

Laughing Stock and his solo self titled album are two of my real favorites. Laughing stock in particular is genius, complete and total.

Saw them in 81 0r 82 on the David Essex Showcase in Harrogate, free tickets for all audience.
Also got the album Spirit Of Eden which is pretty unique.
Sad loss, news like this always is.
