The band would like to express its condolences at the passing of Sir Tom Cowie, who died on 19th January, aged 89.
Sir Tom was highly instrumental in shaping the modern city of Sunderland, particularly its football club and its university.
Fans of the band will know the 1980 song 'Tommy Kowey's Car', a work based on this much-loved local celebrity.
Our thoughts are with Sir Tom's family and friends.

Before I sign off this month, I have to say that there were a few other things that we were going to bring you in this round of updates, but due to a number of tech problems and computer meltdowns over Christmas we've not been able to make this happen. Rest assured though, normal service will resume as soon as possible :0)
