“Hi Neil,
John 'Simmi' Simpson (bass guitar) passed away back in early 2017. I heard, just a few weeks ago, Phil Lee (who was in another one of Simmi's bands, but not The Brigade) had passed away. However, I'm not aware of any other members of The Brigade dying. ...last time I looked, I was still alive and kicking!”

Thanks for the comment. The girl singer was Sue. She now lives with her family in Florida, USA.
I was the drummer, but it wasn't me you bumped into in the 90s – That would have been Gary Crane (the lead guitarist), he owned his own security windows and shutter business,, based in Manchester.
Visit my soundcloud page to listen to a few Brigade tracks here... they might bring back a few memories:
