Sad news....




Former Chron Gen and Chelsea bass player Pete Dimmock died earlier this month. I’ve fond memories of watching both those bands live, and also his first band Optional Xtras and the last band he played in, King Rizla. Pete, always almost motionless on stage apart from his fingers moving up and down the fret board. Sympathies and condolences go out to his family and friends.

So sorry to hear that, I too have great memories of watching him in O X and Chron Gen, Used to love going down to Bowes to watch them practice in the bar.
Again my sympathy goes out to family and friends.

Never HEARD of him. Just another faggot in some queer band, probably. Weird-assed punk crap, more than likely. Who cares except other weirdos...

Arizona Jones is having a meltdown over there. He says he's arguing with an invisible poster, but I only see his words. Weird.

Pete died of cancer. You're all heart anon. I care cos he was a friend of mine, and other friends of mine care because he was a friend of theirs, and I don't care for your cheap insults designed to provoke some response from me or anyone else. Life's too short.
