Smudge letterWe are sad to report that Robert "Smudge" Smith passed away on June 2nd. Smudge was rhythm guitarist in the 1963-65 Cambridge band Those Without, which of course included a young Syd Barrett on guitar and vocals.

A letter in a recent edition of Cambridge News (left) included a tribute to Smudge from friends such as Stephen Pyle, Jenny Spires, Charlie Weedon, and Warren Dosanjh, alongside a picture of Syd, Smudge and Stephen playing live at a wedding reception in 1965.
