Darondo RIP

Just in from the Ubiquity Records Facebook page, Darondo has passed away at the age of 67. Darondo was an incredible lost talent of 70's funk and R&B who had been rediscovered by Ubiquity with great success several years ago. With a murky past (stories of pimping etc), not to mention some fantastic long out-of-print reissued music (not much different than a raw, lower budget version of a funky Al Green), he even made some rare live appearances in the past few years. This included SxSW in 2008 where I was lucky enough to catch him. Rest in peace, indeed, my funky, funky man.
