It is with huge sadness that we have to report the passing of John Molloy, aged 58, following a long up-and-down battle with cancer. John played with Neil March in the band that played the BBC Introducing Stage at Latitude in 2017. He was however more well-known as one half of 1980s Electronic Pop pioneers Mainframe.
John was a complete one-off; a computer wizard before most of us had ever even seen a computer, a virtuoso keyboardist whose own composing saw him cover a multitude of genres and media.
Tributes have poured in on social media underlining the hundreds of lives he touched both as a musician and a human being. Our thoughts are with his lovely and super talented partner Damon and his amazing family.
