john lake :: the emotional spies, column88, the extras, et al.

John brought with him an aura of cult celebrity, partly from his band the Extras in Sheffield. But mainly because he moved with a surge of energy. With a persona blended from wheeling and dealing, Shakespearean drama, Hollywood Bogart and literary professor, he enjoyed words and he liked a hard oblique rhythm.

Sadly John died in a drowning accident in 2003.
