Jo O Keefe -
24 August 2010

It is with great sadness and regret that the death of Jo O Keefe has been announced this week. Jo's onscreen contribution to The Smiths South Bank Show documentary (1987) was greatly appreciated by The Smiths, and Jo's years of vocational loyalty towards The Smiths will never be forgotten by Morrissey. Jo went on to write for the British television programs EastEnders and Coronation Street. It is understood that Jo, who was 41, has died from an asthma attack.

Titbit for DigiNerds re. Moz Mixing

"After re-forming in 2009, Irish rock band The Cranberries have embarked on a 2010 European Summer Tour. Their audio arsenal centres round a DiGiCo SD8 digital mixing console, manned by Oliver Waring at the monitor position.

"I've been using DiGiCo consoles for a number of years," says Waring. "I started out teching with a D5 when I was looking after Dave Guerin, monitor engineer for Morrissey. Then I inherited the monitor position and looked after Morrissey for a couple of years on the D5, later upgrading to an SD7..."

"36 - Quite possibly the foremost pioneer of the indie music genre, Morrissey spent most of the ’80s drafting morose and beautiful songs as frontman for The Smiths. After the dynamic between Smiths members grew contentious, the Englishman went solo in 1987. In 2004, he released a comeback album, You are the Quarry, which sold better than any of his previous solo efforts, or any prior Smiths album. He is moody and he is controversial, but Morrissey arouses fierce loyalty amongst his legion of fans. – Ellen Barnes"
