Subject: Death of Alan Sealey of Cosmotheka
From: Steve Parkes

I'm sorry to have to tell you of the death of Alan Sealey, of Cosmotheka. I only found out last Tuesday that Alan died suddenly of pneumonia on Wednesday 15th December, and this is the first chance I've had to pass on the news.

I've known Al and his brother Dave for twenty-five years now, and it's a great shock to me. Dave and Al had been rehearsing for a panto, Sleeping Beauty, at Solihull Art Complex. Alan was taken ill with flu: he went to work on Tuesday but was sent home straight away because he was so poorly, and died on Wednesday night.

Steve

So sorry to hear the news. I thought they were phenomenal the only time I saw them many years ago, and I'd hoped I would get the chance to see them again. A great loss to music. My condolences to his family and to you too, Steve.

A great loss. I've been a fan for twenty years and have been lucky enough to see them quite a few times. He will be sorely missed and sincere condolenses to all.

Now that is really a shame. It's hard to think we'll never see them up on stage again. Cosmotheka is one of the few acts that has put me in physical pain laughing at them - great stretches of being unable to draw breath with the laughing. Any festival I went to where they were onmthe bill, I'd know for sure that they'd be a highlight.

They could make you see the tragedy in a song like Burlington Berties, and the daft fuin in a song like "I'm one of the Ku-Klux-Klan".

I hope there is some kind of adequate tribute event. And I hoe that Dave manages to carry on.

Oh what bad news. Cosmo the car have been great freinds to us in Guernsey. Both Festival and Club they even played for nothing when we hit hard times. Alan is going to be sorely missed over here.My heart goes out to Dave and all the family.

I found many messages on this forum appreciating the work of Dave & Al Sealey. This is just a quick note to alert anyone who happens to tune in to the fact that Dave is doing performances of his one-man shows about Max Miller and Stanley Holloway, and that with his son Dan he is recreating some of the work of Cosmotheka, in several venues across the summer. You'll find them not only in their native Worcestershire, but in Devon, Cambridgeshire, Warwickshire & Shropshire.

I'm proud to be creating a website for them (Dave is not much of a computer buff!) and while there is only a holding page at present, I've published dates for upcoming gigs; the full site should be available very soon.

The site is at www.cosmotheka.co.uk, and if you use twitter they can be found at @cosmothekamusic.

Best wishes

Cassie Tillett
