Richard Shirman

RIP vocalist with The Attack

Re: Richard Shirman

Didn't know about that. What a great band they were. Their About Time compilation is a must have.

Can't find any info about it?

R.I.P. Richard Shirman

The Wikipedia page is up-to-date but doesn't give the date he died.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Attack_(band).
Yep, otherwise, his passing on seems to be unreported.

It's great, but It's not definitive as it claims.

Here's an excellent in depth review of that album and the band:

Thanks for letting me know, Justin. Apologies. I've been trying to refind the article but no luck. Shame, as it was really long and detailed.

Best I can offer now is

NB
Eureka! Result! I'd saved a copy of the review so i'll put it up under a new thread asap as i still don't have the URL where i found it.
