We’re all still reeling at Omnibus from the news that Jordan died earlier this week. She was always so full of life and enthusiasm, that it hardly seems possible.

She had been wonderful to work with on her book, Defying Gravity. Collaborative, creative, hard working and, just as importantly, great fun. And we had a blast when it came to publicising the book. The evening we took over the 100 Club will always remain a highlight of my time at Omnibus.
And following the book’s publication, we would still see Jordan from time to time, which was always a pleasure. She was a regular guest at Louder Than Words, I know she was very much enjoying our BowieOdyssey series and we’d occasionally bump into each other at gigs.
I fear I might have indulged in far too many cliches here, which doesn’t seem right for such an original. But Jordan was also such a generous spirit that I know she would have forgiven me. We feel lucky to have known her…

She was a wonderful person, strong and great company to be with. Both her and Cathi were a delight and Defying Gravity one of the best cultural biographies over the last few years.
Such lovely words for such a precious person. Her book was a breath of fresh air from her two wildly opposing sides of life. Rest In Peace, Jordan, for without you that kinetic period would have been so much less vibey. Punk rock love to you forever. xo
