Just on Spec Playlist 13-4-10

April 13, 2010

Hello everyone,

A couple of Sad notes to start this week off. A couple of deaths that I would like to note.

Mark Linkous, the man behind Sparkelhorse died recently. For me his album “Good Morning Spider” was seminal album. I was given a copy of it on tape before I started driving around Australia on a journey that almost took 2 years. That tape was played again and again in times of joy and of great loss. I was the first CD I bought when I returned home and still play it today. I saw him live in Brighton UK in 2000 and it was an amazing gig. Here are some more informed people talking about him and his work. Mark committed suicide in Knoxville, Tennessee on March 6, 2010. This is a great loss and will be missed.

Also I would like to note the passing of Malcom Mclaren who I would have to say, greatest talent was to see greatness in others. He has a very accurate gauge on what is cool and probably best put as what will be cool. Malcom brought Punk to the UK and spawned the Sex Pistols outta his partners fashion shop called SEX. Here is some info on him and his life. He died of mesothelioma (is a rare form of cancer that develops from the protective lining that covers many of the body’s internal organs) on 8 April 2010 in a clinic in Switzerland.
