hugh hopper flag England - Full Moon 157 - 07/07/09

Hugh Colin Hopper
April 29 1945 - June 7 2009

The day of the last full moon turned out to be a sad one. Bassplayer, prominent fuzzbassplayer, loopist, experimentalist, impovisor, wilde flower, soft machinist, pop-, rock- and jazzgroundbreaker etc. etc. Hugh Hopper passed away that day, much too soon. He will be sadly missed!

Memories can hang you up and haunt you
all your life, you know
Get so you cannot stay
and yet cannot go

Off Memories (Hugh Hopper 1964-65, with some lyrical support by his old friend, class- and bandmate Robert Wyatt).
