    We were lucky to have him while we did. He made a perfect record in American Water, and no one wrote a one-two couplet like him.

    He was supposed to start a tour this week.

    “People ask people to watch their scotch / people send people up to the moon / and when they return, well there isn’t much / people be careful not to crest too soon”



    And my forever favorite:



    “My father came in from wherever he’d been / kicked my sh*t all over the room”

    Terrible loss, especially coming on the heels of his return to music. A genuine lyrical genius. Lucky to have seen the Silver Jews several times in the early - mid 90s.

    Mark Hollis, Scott Walker, now David Berman. We've lost some truly original and uncompromising artists this year
