It is with profound sadness and disbelief that we have to share the news of the passing of our beloved friend and brother, James Skuse. For those who have met him, you will know the kind of guy he was. Selfless, kind, uncomplicated and with a sense of humour like no other. James was simply, ‘one of the good guys’. Our thoughts are with the Family that he loved so much. To his Wife, Amy and the boy’s, Dylan and Bradley and to the rest of the Family. It was James and Amy’s wish for us to continue with our final gig in August, and we will honour that wish, with all proceeds going to James’s family. We will do our very best to raise the roof in his memory. You will be missed Brother. Love you always.
Iain. Mark. Matt. Peter
