Mark Burgess once introduced ‘Here Today’ with these words.

I just read on The Chameleons message board that Mancunian musician, Bryan Glancy, died at the weekend. I didn’t know Bryan Glancy. I never met Bryan Glancy. I just happened to see him supporting The Chameleons in Camden back in November 2002. Just very sad for his friends and family to think of another young person gone before his time.

Elsewhere, four young people are convicted of manslaughter (not murder) for kicking a man to death in a random attack on London’s South Bank.

A person isn’t safe anywhere these days.
