Xero was most definately an Urban Hero of the Music World, remember well that at a time when Street Performing was unlawful in Leeds City Centre, He braved it all to bring the Music to the masses, was truly inspirational to myself, wish he were around today so I could thank Him.

I am glad to find such a lot of information on Matthew and the band. I enjoyed the music so much, they gave me a start into joy and jazz.

It is good to find info after so long time. It is kind of consolation

Cheers, Connie

My friend Monika & I saw the band first in 1986 at the Café Egal in Rheinbach, Germany. After the gig he was drunk and one of his sentences I remember most was "every politician is a legitimate target".... We were that much impressed by his personality and the band, that we decided to go to Great Britain for our summer holidays. Matthew told us there would be a concert in his hometown Leeds. He seemed to be ancious about it, like it was their first concert there. We hitchhiked from London to Leeds - and there we stood, not knowing where the concert would take place or anything like how to find the band. After spending some time in the city with our small walkman & loudspeaker, playing 'shove it' and asking passers by if they knew the band - we thought of taking a look into the phone book. We actually found his name, but he didn't have this number any more. Anyway, we got his number, phoned Matthew and he was so kind to tell us to come to his house in thornton terrace. He put us on the guest list for the next evening in the club with no name. Their concert was great, I will never forget this experience! I still love their music and listen to it. And I am still sad this had to end.

I saw Xero Slingsby & the Works at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam, that must have been in the late 80's. Made an incredible impression on me. Will definately be spinning some of his tunes on Dutch Radio6 this season. His portrait is still on the wall in Dambert the jazzclub in Gent, Brussels by the way. Cheers, Benjamin Herman

Just wanted to make sure that everyone knows about the Xero Slingsby Appreciation Society on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/group.php?gid=16941510318
Videos aplenty from the Cafe Click and lots of newly discovered photographs from the Luxor in Koln.
21 years...hardly seems possible really, the memory of the old bugger still so finely etched.
