Retro News: Singer for Flesh for Lulu Dies

It first appeared on a 1987 album entitled Long Live the New Flesh but the big boost came with its including on the soundtrack to the John Hughes film, Some Kind of Wonderful.  It then became a ubiquitous choice for all those retro CD compilations that were once so popular.

Nick Marsh was the band’s singer. He died Friday (June 5) at the age of 53 after a long bout of cancer.
