Larissa Strickland - R.I.P.

So Larissa Strickland died from a drug overdose this past week. Unfortunately, it isn't entirely a surprise. Such a stupid way to die.......

To the uninitiated, she was in L-Seven (not the LA all-girl band) and later in the Laughing Hyenas. An absolute MONSTER of a guitar player and was pretty much untouchable as one of the great late 80's/early 90's players. Hands down.

I was always very intimidated by the entire Brannon/Strickland axis of folks when I'd see them. And back in the Pittsburgh days, there were probably no better bills that I saw than either Northern Bushmen or one of those noise mongers opening up for the Hyenas. In fact, I think Kris Kasperowski was the person who threw their first EP in my mitts back when I was at UPitt. God, it seems like it was almost yesterday.

I'm attaching parts of the Hyenas '86 demo tape because, well, I think there's probably a few people out there who'd really like to hear more of this incredible, and now sadly departed, guitar player.

Our thoughts and sympathies go to Larissa's family and friends.
