Kim Shattuck passed away after a long battle with ALS. Besides fronting The Muffs, she's played in several bands as well as a brief stint as bassist for The Pixies (those morose motherfuckers thought she was enjoying herself too much).
This one sucks for me. I saw The Muffs open for Veruca Salt way back in the day and instantly fell in love with them. I know I've said this several times, but I got to hang out with these guys once when I was a very young and stupid kid. They couldn't have been cooler and nicer. Thanks, Kim.
Please ignore this very strange and NSFW opening "skit" as well as all the weird camera wipes.

Marianne Ihlen, noted "muse" of Leonard Cohen, passed away recently. This song is probably Top 25 "Time And Place" songs for me, which is likely why I haven't listened to it for a long time. Let's give it a spin, yes?

walt mink is one of my favorites that also suffers from a lack of decent live videos. i considered playing them back on my guest DJ week, but the lack of quality material prevented me. el producto was ubiquitous during the greatest summer of my life, and should have been their breakthrough album (it even got a 10.0/10.0 from pitchfork, back when pitchfork was this little website that you'd probably never heard of). unfortunately, success stayed just around the corner, and they disbanded in 1997. in all its phasey glory, walt mink:
i also encourage you to go out and find their studio werks. best band named after a macalester professor in the business.
