A Socialism Hero Passes Away...

Sad to report that George Melly has passed away. The jazz man, fisher and raconteur was as much a fixture of Soho as The French House, Ronnie Scotts and the mad old bird who comes in the pubs blagging pound coins. Having worked and drunk in W1 since 1994, having started the mag off here in 2004 (Christ how come we've only managed 4 fucking issues????), we've spent many an time sat in pubs where Melly can be heard regaling the bar with bawdy stories of how Soho used to be. What a bloke, will be missed.

  • George Melly, Rest In Peace
