RIP Motion (Allergo)

Recommended Posts

Can't believe no-one has posted anything bout this already. For those that don't know already, Motion was drummer in Allergo. He tragically drowned in the River Tay on Sunday. Only met him a few times but he was a fuckin top guy. The Scottish HC scene will miss him.

absolutely devastated when i found out. he was such a motivator for all things music. especially the local scene. he will be missed greatley but never forgotten. i`ll always remember his enthuisiam, singing along with everything.

a floral tribute on moncrief island, near the bridge where he fell, in Perth has begun for anyone wishing to leave something in his memory.

all my wishes go to his family and closest friends.

R.I.P. Motion: great guy, awesome drummer, tragic loss

:down:

This was made by his brother graham.

p.s. his brothers name is stuart

like teabags, not my place to say anything earlier but...

great guy, horrific tragedy. gigs (and i mean every gig EVER as he seemed to always be there) will not be the same without him and his massive cheesy grin, his bopping head or pyramyd building. met him a good lot of times and would always chat away even though we hardly knew eachother. he was a very popular guy in the scene and out of it, and a LOT of people will be affected by this

it must be a horrible time for his family, girlfriend, bandmates, closest friends etc

You can find some of UGS' pics from the gig here. Was a fantastic night and an amazing tribute to one of the communities most loved. Well done to all those involved and i'm sure it'll be a night few will forget.
