NEW YORK -- Musician Nikki Sudden, a British cult favorite since the late '70s as both a solo act and part of influential bands like Swell Maps and the Jacobites, died one day after playing a show at Manhattan's Knitting Factory, his record label said yesterday.

Mr. Sudden, 49, was touring after finishing up his new album, ''The Truth Doesn't Matter," and was working on his autobiography when he died Sunday, according to a statement on the Secretly Canadian label website.
