Jez Strode Official Departure Letter 1985

March 1, 2011

On 30th July 1985, the KajaFax club sent out the official letter confirming that Jez Strode had left the band.

The letter also confirms the release lates of ‘Shouldn’t Do That’ and ‘Crazy People’s Right to Speak’.

This marks the official date that the band first became a three piece, a position that was not to change until briefly in 2003 but not fully till 2009.


Many thanks once again to Florian Hohring for this one, it’s a major piece of Goo history.

    Makes me sad – even now, 26 years later!

    Thanks again to Florian!

    We were gutted when Jez left to be honest. He was always friendly and down to earth but I dont think we were surprised, he wasn’t really a ‘popstar’ if you see what I mean. I am back in touch with Michelle (author of the letter) though now though as well as Jez which is nice.

      Yeah Jez is cool, these ‘left the band’ type letters are easier to swallow these days knowing the guys got it sorted in the end!
