I have to say I'm amazed at the amount of coverage Fritz has been getting. Here's another obituary, this one from the Glasgow Herald, showing him as a child of the punk era, with its 'zines, noisy bands, gigs in scruffy venues and opportunities for the creative:-
Flushed with the sense of reinvention the punk era inspired, [Fritz] took his diabolic nom de plume from Dracula's vampire-slaying nemesis usually played by Peter Cushing in Hammer's increasingly camp restyling of Bram Stoker's original Gothic novel. Van Helsing took on the very of-its-time pen-name of Lou Kemia for his excitable scrawls in Wrong Time, but kept the eventually legally acquired Van Helsing name to the end, his former pre-teen identity a closely guarded secret.
Where others of his generation moved on to more respectable outlets, Van Helsing kept the faith throughout the next two decades, be it through his zines Asylum and Full Moon, or playing drums in equally wilful bands including FRAK and Nicotine Fingers. In 2000, with two friends Van Helsing began the Full Moon Club in the suitably labyrinthine confines of Bannerman's, the former folk pub in Edinburgh's Cowgate. For seven years on the last Thursday of each month, the Full Moon operated an anything-goes speakeasy policy that could see solo troubadours on the same bill as stand-up poets and punk guitar duos in an off-radar cabaret that attracted a loyal fan-base without ever attempting to curry favour with the rest of the city's music scene.
[I don't know if we started the Full Moon Club in Bannermans, though we were there for part of the time We held it in The Maltings, the Canonsgait and a huge, rather grand place down in Leith, where our FRAK video was recorded. My memory is of lugging amplifiers up steep stairs from pub basements. There were some great gigs - and some terrible ones.]
