Time Out  -  April 10, 1979
 
The tragic death at 27 of Zenon De Fleur, rhythm guitarist and founder of The Bishops, has deprived the British R&B scene of one of its most versatile, energetic, talented and good hearted faces. His composition "Train Train" (Chiswick Records) is one of the masterpieces of recent years, deserving far wider success than it achieved at the time of release. A tribute to Zenon by The Cannibals and The Inmates is being staged at the 101 Club on Saturday. Zen will be greatly missed.

BISHOPS' REQUIEM

THE BISHOPS, who appear at Chester Smarties on Monday and at the Manchester Factory next Tuesday, have been trying to make the big breakthrough for several years now, and it finally seems like success is just around the corner.
But one of the men who worked so hard to achieve recognition, Zenon De Fleur, is no longer around to enjoy it.
He crashed his Aston Martin DB6 into a tree some weeks ago and he died in hospital after a week.

 

 

What's On  -  May 19, 1979
 

HAVING JAM ON IT

Saturday and The Late Show at Barbs. Largely a poor version of The Fabulous Poodles debut album "Snap" (Decca) has a couple of interesting reworks on old favourites such as "Chains", and a great version of the old Shangri-Las' song "She Cried". Rest of it's trivial and disposable.
New Cryer line-up at Barbs the following night.
Sky are at the Odeon on Monday 21 (see feature elsewhere) while R&B rockers The Bishops are at Digbeth Civic Hall on Tuesday. A rough, no punches pulled outfit with plenty of attack and little finesse. A new single "Mr Jones" indicates the distance between studio and stage.
Star turn for the night are Jam at the Odeon. Times have to change for the Jam and their "Butterfly Collector" is a good indication that they have the ability to survive in another maturer vein.
