Others have written fine obituaries for Peter Gutteridge. I knew Peter quite well when I lived in Dunedin, but had not seen him for the 15 years since I moved to Auckland (sadly, that is too easy to do). This is my response to his death, a gift of sorts to him, and I hope the wider community of musicians and friends, for his gifts to us.

Perhaps best in someone else's words:
"Flickers of Cabaret Voltaire..…jabs early 80s Gaelo-celtic geetar melody generously wrapped in an Eno-esque crust with undertones of post-industrial industrialness"
