Time out for a tribute. I just read that Steven Wells died this week. He was probably more of an influence on me than I realise, and although I didn't always dig everything he wrote I had his last ever Banging On column from the NME pinned to my notice board for years. It's still in a file at home I think.
I didn't even realise he'd been suffering from cancer, I read it on Warren Ellis's site, and his final column for Philidelphia Weekly is here. You should read it really.
