RIP Sky Saxon

While everyone is fawning over the passing of Michael (sad - I dug the J5), Sky Saxon also passed today.
More, with a vid of "Can't Seem To Make You Mine".
Hard to tell in this version of Petula Clark on the TAMI Show, but Sky is the one who grabs her hand and won't let go at about the 3 minute mark.

The Seeds' 60's garage/psych minimalism is pretty damn genius. I can't imagine anyone not loving "Pushin' Too Hard" or even the mania of "Evil Hoodoo". Certainly a big influence on me!

And Crooks and Liars has a video for their anthemic hit:
