Ou Est Le Swimming Pool celebrate the life of Chazz Haddon

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool are celebrating the life of Chazz Haddon who passed away on 20th August 2010. 

Today marks 5 years since Chazz took his own life after performing to 50,000 at Pukkelpop festival in Belgium. The remaining members of the band want to share OELSP tracks online in celebration of the life of a great friend and a brilliant musician.

In the words of his bandmates:
“Charlie’s greatest passion was for music, as a fan, a songwriter or performer. Primarily though it is his qualities as a human, not only his talents as a musician, that meant that those with whom he worked and met during his bright career were touched by his affable nature, boundless enthusiasm and thirst for fun. Chazz was regarded by all those who knew and loved him as a warm conversationalist, possessing genuine charm and a man with whom countless happy memories, musical or otherwise were shared.”

A beautiful eulogy in memory of a much missed friend, bandmate and musician.

Suicide, though rarely talked about, is the single  biggest killer of men aged 20-45 years old in the UK. Remaining band member Joe Hutchinson, along with DJ Eddy Temple Morris, work endlessly to support CALM and raise awareness of the issue of male suicide.Thank you.
