Just heard Phil May of The Pretty Things has passed away. Another character we met on our travels way back in 2011 when we shared a bill at the Rhythm Festival.

Rest easy Phil, and thank you.' R I P Phil May of the Pretty Things, a smashing bloke & a musician who ever got the recognition he deserved.

Gavin: I think it's an interesting observation, because he's talking about the need for moderation and moderation is a good thing. Right now, you have a situation where there's a lot of noise out there. We need to make sure that we're moderating it well and are developing a nuanced understanding of who is part of our community, what our values are and what our values are not
