I was very sad to hear about the passing of Eddy Pumer. Eddy was a member of 60s band, Kaleidoscope. He was also Kenny Everett’s producer at Capital Radio and worked for Paul McCartney as a producer on various projects. He was also instrumental in promoting Kate Bush in her early career and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody on the radio.
So farewell then, Eddy Pumer.
Nothing stops the hurt, even when it is expected, and I received the sad news of Eddy’s passing last night from Peter Daltrey. We are all headed in the same direction, but Eddy boarded the rock ‘n’ roll express some years ago.
This quiet, kind, modest man was the finest musician I have ever worked with. His talent was consummate. If it had strings on it, Eddy could play it. The breadth of his talent is probably best expressed in Fairfield Parlour’s album ‘White Faced Lady’, which he augmented orchestrally. Eddy (he preferred that spelling, after one of his guitar heroes, Duane Eddy) wrote the score for each instrument and also conducted. He was more thoughtful, more considered in Fairfield Parlour where he filled a space rather than dominated the mix.
His best work, though, is surely with Kaleidoscope. With a total of only three instruments it was Eddy’s guitar which drove that machine. And he was the same at live gigs. I swear I saw him levitate during the ferocity of ‘Music’.
See ya later, Eddy. And life goes on.
Another sad day, woke up to the news that Eddy Pumer had left us, gone to join his band mate Steve Clark. The news left me immensely sad, not just for the passing of a wonderful musician but also because his bands, Kaleidoscope and Fairfield Parlour, should surely have been known to all who love music, sadly it is only in more recent times that they got the recognition they so richly deserved. The bands singer Peter Daltrey and co author, along with Eddy Pumer of the bands songs, wrote this in September 2017 : It was soon apparent that bashing out Stones and Beatles covers was never going to be enough. We had to write our own songs. That task fell to Ed and I. And they did, writing some wonderful songs which sadly, at the time, went largely unnoticed. The fabulous Flight From Ashiya was released ahead of their album, Tangerine Dream but failed to chart, years later they found out that there had been a distribution problem, the album failed to chart also. Rest easy Eddy Pumer.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
