First of all, that name. Françoise Cactus. It just made me want to find out who she was.

Turns out she was a pretty cool musician I knew nothing about until a few days ago. And, back when there were two Germanys and two Berlins, she was one of the few “westerners” to play in East Berlin.




I wish I had known about these interesting people before they had died. Let’s share in the life of those lesser-known heroes I randomly discover have recently passed away.
