We’re saddened today by news of the death of the writer Barry Hines. I know I’m not alone when I say that I owe him big time. As a tribute we thought we’d repost a recent mix from Dubwood Allstars featuring an inspired blend of Barry’s words from Ken Loach’s film adaptation of a Kestrel For A Knave and White Eagle by Tangerine Dream. As you do.
Barry’s younger brother, Richard Hines, the falcon mad inspiration for A Kestrel For A Knave, has recently published a memoir, No Way But Gentelenesse, which comes highly reccomended by us lot.
Barry Hines, 30 June 1939 – 20 March 2016
