    There’s only ever been one Fritz one of the original Edinburgh punks. You’d be hard pressed to find another soul as enthusiastic and energised about gigs and records of good music and stuff! Was glad to known him for sure.

      Fritz gave my band its second ever gig. Lovely guy – intelligent and passionate. I’ll miss him.

    “There he goes. One of God’s own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”

    Hi Norman,

    A very nice tribute to Fritz, an unconventional gentleman who will be missed. Thanks for putting the words together.

    Great tribute Norman. There are a whole host of local musicians who were given a start and/or a leg up by Fritz and Full Moon.

    Fritz was always supportive of Out of the Bedroom in the early days and I remember him bringing a (small) drumkit to the Waverley to play with Rosie. Fritz was no fan of bongos, congas, djembes or any of that – it had to be a drumkit! 🙂

    There’s not many out there with Fritz’s passion for music and DIY approach / punk ethic. We need that passion now as much as we ever did.

    Fritz died too soon. Very sad. RIP.
