News just reached us of the death of Craig Lorentson, singer in Falkirk band Lowlife, who passed away on June 4th.
Lorentson, who was a founder member of the band in the late 80s, was originally singer in Grangemouth act Dead Neighbours, once described by Sounds as “Scotland’s answer to The Cramps”. Cocteau Twins bassist Will Heggie joined the lineup which would soon become Lowlife. The band released five albums between then and the mid-nineties, which were made available in remastered form in 2006.
