I just discovered his music through a particularly great old Solid Steel show. RIP.

Ow. A sad end for a talented musician with a long, varied career.

Here's another discography for Hugh, including links to his other projects, but I think it's incomplete (as compared to the solo album list from Wikipedia).

And here's a link to "Vintage Solid Steel: ‘Now, Listen’ Tour Retrospective" tracklist, with Bonobo's mix that includes Hugh Hopper - The Lonley Sea and the Sky (on Compendium records).

Methinks we need an ObitFilter.

R.I.P. Hugh. Canterbury music can be a blast, especially when it didn't take itself too seriously. I preferred Caravan and National Health over Soft Machine but I'll definitely be spinning "Third" this afternoon.

He married his partner Christine on 5 June 2009 and died of leukaemia on 7 June.

R.I.P. Hugh. His signature fuzzed bass flew its highest on Soft Machine 1, 2 and Third. Brilliant musician
