Postcards From Paradise // Nick Marsh

Nick Marsh, lead singer of the legendary British gothic rock band, Flesh For Lulu, died aged 53 after battling cancer.

Flesh For Lulu became popular to a wider audience with I Go Crazy, after having the song featured in the 1987 John Hughes film, Some Kind Of Wonderful. The band that started as a John Peel stunner released four albums in total from 1984 to 1989 and achieved commercial success and critical acclaim before disbanding in the late eighties due to "musical differences".

Marsh with his Flesh For Lulu bandmate (and ex-Wasted Youth member), Rocco, formed Gigantic in 1996 with whom they released a self titled record that was later re-released under the Flesh For Lulu moniker. He also released a solo record in 2006 and was a member of The Urban Voodoo Machine and From The Deep, a band he formed with his wife, Katharine Blake (of Miranda Sex Garden).

The playlist that follows features the official Flesh For Lulu videos, as well as some live cuts from the band in the 80s, clips off Nick's solo album and two From The Deep videos off their debut self titled record, which will be released this summer.
