Their lead singer Gladys Horton has died. Story on the Rolling Stone site:

I think it warrants mentioning on a Pompey site because  they recorded the original of “Please Mr Postman”, covered by the Beatles but also “I’ll Keep Holding On” – covered wonderfully by Birdcage favourites the Action and “Too Many Fish in the Sea” – often played by DJ Pete Brady at the club. Beautiful music. R.I.P.
