Mick Woods Obit: Sky Saxon of The Seeds (June 25 2009) (7) RE: Obit: Sky Saxon of The Seeds (June 25 2009) 28 Jun 09

Sad news htrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtris early song "Can't Seem To Make You Mine" was recently used on a TV ad ( don't know what it was advertising) but he will always be associated with that brilliant anthem "Pushin' To Hard" I first came across Sky's music during the early seventies on Lenny Kaye's compilation NUGGETS. I then managed to get hold of some of the early Seeds albums including an original copy of WEB OF SOUND album on a stall in Portobello Market for 30P! Their early stuff was solid proto-punk but they later developed a more pastoral psychedelic sound.
He later changed his name from Saxon to Sunlight. During the Punk/New wave boom of the late seventies I remember buying a record by Sky Sunlight and The New Seeds - but for me he never recaptured that raw innocent sound of the early Seeds records. RIP
