I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Caught in the struggle tight on the rod / I want you / Bring out the devil to bring out the god

Jay Bennett: 1963 - 2009

Jay Bennett was famously ejected from Wilco shortly after the completion of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. The events of that recording were filmed in I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, which remains one of the finest musical documentaries ever filmed.

Jay was also an immensely talented musician. His last solo album was called whatever happened i apologize was released on Rock Proper as a free download. It was deeply personal, and quite wonderful to listen too. I was hoping for a solo tour.

It seems that won’t happen. Jay passed away in his sleep on the weekend. Aquarium Drunkard a post on the subject, and has offered up the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot demos again.
