Clytie Jessop, long-term London-resident Australian artist, art gallery owner, occasional actress (most notably as Miss Jessel in The Innocents) and director of the 1988 film Emma's War, made in her home country.

This one seems to have flown under the radar. This Facebook post announcing her death is from 19 April. The obituary above - the only one I've so far found - is from 26 May and is by Philippe Mora, who knew her. She arranged a benefit for the premiere of his debut feature Trouble in Molopolis, shot in London on short ends from the Performance shoot, cowritten by Jessop's husband Peter Smalley, and featuring several Australian expats in the cast. The acting roles seem to have come about by her friendship with Freddie Francis, who photographed The Innocents and directed her in Nightmare and Torture Garden.

Jimmy Guterman, back in July. His writing introduced me to a lot of rock and country music I would have otherwised missed. I once emailed him pre-iTunes about the “All Killer, No Filler” compilation he produced for Rhino, asking him if it was out-of-print for good. He wrote back and said he was shocked to see that it was now going for $100 and sent me a CD-R copy afterwards. I still have it too.

Sean Hughes at 51. His standup success came a little before my time, so my memories of him are mostly as a team captain on panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

Also, John Dunsworth, best known for playing Mr. Lahey in the Trailer Park Boys series and movies.

Its been a long time since they were shown but Sean Hughes passing reminded me that there was that interesting period in the early 90s where stand up comics were getting their own multi-episode TV series run, usually on Channel 4. Sean Hughes had Sean's Show, and Paul Merton during the height of his 'surreal' period had The Paul Merton Show. Jo Brand got a self-titled show too. Jack Dee and Jeremy Hardy did a couple of one-off team ups. And of course there was the anarchic team of Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer transferring their stage show into a series with very few changes.

Lots of these 'edgy' performers (as with Graham Norton in the chat show field) transferred over to the BBC over the course of the 90s to do work in the same vein but a bit 'safer' with the rougher edges sanded off, and one of the safest ways it seemed for comedians to get consistent and reliable work, and perhaps more importantly to keep themselves visible in the public eye, was to be on panel quiz shows either as a team captain (as Sean Hughes was for a while) or a regular semi-permanent guest spot. Of course Vic & Bob exploded the panel show even whilst working at the 'safer' BBC with their absurd Shooting Stars series! (Though they did pave the way for the likes of Keith Lemon currently, so I'm wary of entirely celebrating their legacy!)

There certainly would be an interesting piece to be written on that period of the 'alternative' stand up comedians becoming the new establishment (epitomised perhaps by Eddie Izzard becoming a political and campaigning figure whilst simultaneously going Transatlantic, almost embodying New Labour!), seeing how those they replaced fared (Bob Monkhouse adapted amazingly well, but Jasper Carrott and the more militant 80s figures like Alexei Sayle didn't seem to thrive as much), and how they all adapted to having been in some ways co-opted!

That final (televised) concert they performed was extraordinarily emotional - an amazing farewell.

My Facebook feed is having one of the biggest melt downs today because of this. I never actually bought an album but even I was upset by this because the group was basically the soundtrack to my teen years.

It was a hell of a show. I was thankful they streamed it because I don't believe any station down here was airing it.

I was never really a fan of their music, but the news made me a bit melancholy because they've always just been around, a ubiquitous and somewhat reassuring part of the culture for as long as I can remember. Or something. It's hard to phrase.
