I'm shocked at reading this very sad news. I can't quite grasp it really.
Blueboy were one of my very favourite bands and their album "unisex" ranks among my all time favourite albums. I can never listen to a song like "Marble Arch" without it sending shivers down my spine.
Keith really had the voice of an angel.

He will be greatly missed.

I was fortunate to have spent time with Keith for a relatively short period of time and to have enjoyed both his and the Feverfew/Blueboy bands company.My brother, Lloyd, was the drummer for both bands and I had the good fortune of participating in both live recordings & gigs in the Feverfew days.
Furthermore, I had the greater honour of being able to listen to Keith/Paul/Lloyd/Phil/Gemma etc from the floor as they all grew from a group of like minded friends enjoying the feeling of learning,enjoying & playing to what became a seminal band .
Even though they were perhaps not overly appreciated at the time Keiths greatest epitaph would be that anyone who was in his company for a short period of time could not fail to be affected by his earnestness, joie de virve, or his inherent humour.

1994. The first time i have heard about blueboy. "some gorgeous accident" was the NME Single of the week. when i listened the ep, i could not believe... how someone could make so perfect pop music... superb. I wrote a letter to blueboy... "i feel like a night flyer over the earth..." wiht a little paint... some days after, i receveid a letter from Keith... just a few words with some paints... a guitar, a flower, the sun... "The boy from Brazil"/Arabesque could be inspired in my letter... If so, it was the best gift I´ve receveid in my life...
There is no one like Keith Girdler... his voice, the music, the style... Love.
