One of the great anarcho punk bands Zounds lost their recent bass player Protag. A populariser face on the British punk scene Protag’s death has shocked the scene.
Zounds left the following statement on their website.
‘Protag played bass in Zounds from 2003 to 2006.
He died today at 9.15 on 18th Feb 2014.
He was an amazing person who was associated with the band from the earliest days.
He was selflessly devoted to Bradford’s 1 in 12 Club to which he gave much energy, care and love.
I could go on and on about how brilliant, interesting, original and funny Protag was but there will be time for that later.
Protag played and organised Blyth Power for years and also played with ATV.
Words can’t express how much we will miss him. Love to all – Steve’
