Farewell to a Kink

Peter Quaife, original bassist for The Kinks, has passed away, reports Pitchfork. Listen to two of the classic tracks he played on below:


Lost Last Month

May 2010

Some sense of security among New Yorkers, after a car bomb is discovered and disarmed in Times Square. Singer, actress and civil rights activist Lena Horne, 92. Peace in Greece, as thousands gather to protest the government. The fate of the beleaguered Gulf Coast, as oil continues to gush from the busted Deepwater Horizon rig. Faith in the President, as the media compares his time on the golf course with his time working on the spill. The first floor of the Grand Ole Opry, after the rising Cumberland River floods Nashville. Injustice, when a Chinese man is freed from prison after ten years because the man he had been convicted of killing is found alive. A grave oversight, when Poland disinters Copernicus from his unmarked resting place and reburies him with honors. The notion that it's difficult to rob museums, after yet another art heist, this time five paintings worth over $100 million stolen from the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.


Our summer issue (plus ice cream cones)
