Passings

Although there has been wide coverage of yesterday's deaths of Michael Jackson and Farah Fawcett, another somewhat lesser known pop-culture figure passed away yesterday as well: The Seeds' Sky Saxon (h/t BLCKDGRD). For those unfamiliar, The Seeds' music from the 1960s was one source of inspiration for late 1970s punk and post-punk.

The following video is of a cover of "No Escape" by Cabaret Voltaire. Apparently the video was shot in 1981, although the tune itself was from the Cabs' 1979 debut LP, Mix-Up. To see a You-Tube video featuring the original Seeds version, check out BLCKDGRD, who'll hook you up.
