Joseph Hill (1949-2006)

Jamaica born Joseph Hill, singer and songwriter with Culture has died while on tour with the band in Berlin.

Culture recorded three Peel Sessions: 1982, 1988, 2002, as well as performing at the Royal Festival Hall in 1998 as part of John Peel’s Meltdown festival lineup. The 2002 session forms part of a John Peel show that’s currently available for download – see links below.

If you have knowledge of any tribute programmes from radio being available or any other related media (non-commercial) please leave details in the comments.

We’re losing far too many good people lately.
