Big big shame to hear of the passing of Albertos Y Lost Trios Paranoias main man CP Lee today, now they really were as punk as punk could be, they were lazy and rude as well, I hope they don’t leave him in a plastic bag on the pavement as some kind of tribute to your modern world… .
I might one day admit to being in a band that might have done some gobbbbbbing on life now and again. oh how I love that piece of seven inch vinyl that has Snuff Rock pressed on it, and those glorious Stiff compilations.. Rotten!

Born in Didsbury in 1950 he was a writer, broadcaster, lecturer and performer who sixties band Greasy Bear. also featured the legendary Bruce Mitchell on drums.
Alberto y Lost Trios Paranoias were a satirical rock review who became embroiled in the Manchester punk scene who split up in 1982 after releasing three albums.
He also wrote several books including When We Were Thin (published October 2007) is a personal memoir in which Lee recounts how he produced one side of the first Factory and also books on Bob Dylan especially Like The Night (Revisited), about the famous ‘Judas’ night at manchester Free trade Hall”.
