Ah shit. Game changer. No age to go. Tragic.


Literally nobody before or since makes albums like this.

That’s very sad.

Unwound are one of my all-time favourites. Amazing on record, amazing live. Glad I got to see them, at the Dublin Castle of all places.

Fuck. I just heard. This is going to hit me hard.

Very sad. Unwound are criminally underrated.

This bass line rips:

Really sad news this. ‘We Invent You’ is one of my favourite ever album openers and, as mentioned above, his playing on ‘December’ is just amazing.

RIP Vern. Unwound were one of the best bands of all time and Vern was a staggeringly good bass player.

He also sings on this bit of mad brilliance.

He’s one of my most important influences as a bassist (pretty much only Carlos D ahead of him) as much as the band are on my music taste. Gutted I never got to see them (very jealous @aboynamedgoo)
