website is dedicated to the life and times of Stu P. Didiot.
A multi-phrenic (Stu's word) life full of music and adventure.
Stuart Lunn was born in 1957 in the Midlands of England
to Eric and Maureen. He left home at the age of 15 and came
to London to become a punk hero. He had more musical and
writing ability than most of his peers and continued making
music throughout his life. He was an amazing individual
who could learn anything and teach just as much. Those whose
lives were touched by him know that his influence on their
life was invaluable. It was mine.
12th July, 2003 Stu lost his battle against cancer while
living in San Francisco with his second wife Johna. ...Not
quite the rock'n'roll ending Stu may have envisaged but
at least it was in the country he fought to become a citizen
of (and had always wanted to live in) and surrounded by
people who loved and cared about him.
on any of the links to the left to read what others wrote
& what Stu wrote and to see images of Stu throughout
would seem, just as Stu predicted, that there is a bit of
a Charge following out there. Consequently Cherry
Red are releasing Perfection, the Album, with the added
Kings Cross and Destroy the Youth singles (these two, in
my opinion, sounding as fresh and relevant today as they
did then) under the title Perfection Plus. Both Dave Griffiths,
Charge's bass player, and I contributed memories and images
to the sleevenotes. Alex
Ogg having pulled the whole thing together.
You can also get copies of Caged & Staged, Charge's
live album from Trikont's
