Ou Est Le Swimming Pool singer Trajedy- by Kanaan Minks
I never heard of the synthpop British group Ou Est Le Swimming Pool before, but after reading the unfortunate news that their front man Charles Alexander died, I search on YouTube.
After Haddon finished from performing at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium with his band, he climbed the telecommunications mast at the main stage and plunged into the car park in view of his shocked fans. A statement on the band’s MySpace page reads
‘We are all so deeply saddened to confirm that our friend Charlie Haddon passed away yesterday, Friday 20th August. The singer had just performed with his band, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium. He was 22 years old. The London three piece were in Europe playing a number of festivals before embarking on a tour of Australia as part of the Parklife festival next month.
Charles Alexander Haddon R.I.P.
Thanks for all your messages of support. x’
And for those who haven’t heard of this had to be a very promising band, here’s a video below of their latest hit single, Dance the way I feel.
