On 12 March 2014, Lyam Kirkham, drummer with Stereo Virgins, died from a brain tumour. This was mere days after the release of the band’s superb double-A side, 333/Blood & Fire. Prior to Lyam’s passing, we’d interviewed both himself and his bandmate, bass player Beck Alveston, for our Future Hits column. Out of respect for Lyam, we shelved the interview and asked our readers to donate to the fund set up to commemorate his life. Now, with the band’s blessing, we are going to publish the interview, and once again urge you all to buy some Stereo Virgins merch or donate to The Brain Tumour Charity. Since Lyam’s passing, Stereo Virgins have been donating all merchant sales of their merch to this charity. Please visit this link if you would like to buy their merchandise, or simply just donate an amount you can afford to this page, anything you can give big or small will be greatly appreciated. It’s through JustGiving so it is simple, fast and totally secure.
