Sad news. I got to hang about with some members of Taxi Girl when they supported the Stranglers ( I went to a few dates on I think it was the La Folie tour). Nice guys, very friendly and a good band to boot.

RIP.

Said it many times , but Taxi Girl probably the best Stranglers support I've ever seen . Saw a Youtube clip of Daniel from early 2008 ( - he looked a wreck then , totally spaced out by looks of it , so not really a surprise - bloody shame though .

Did not see this at the time but am gutted. Frankly as others have said the greatest support act and a real talent. Evidently always struggled and I had just downloaded his latest album when I thought, let's catch up on his comings and goings. Really nasty shock to find Daniel passed away last month. Vous nous manquerez M. Darc.

Devant le Miroir @ Décibels

Anyone got this song? John Ellis’s Guitar melody at the beginning sounds familiar.
Sounds like a riff he later re-used in a Stranglers song? Can’t think which.

Remember Taxi Girl supporting the Stranglers. Rare, as they weren’t showered in spit. The audience listened. RIP.
how did I get down here, well it's a long story
