Overthrow Cock Rock and Idolize Your Girlfriend

Sad news to pass along about Lance Hahn, vocalist/guitarist for J Church. He passed away over the weekend. Here's a post on PunkNews.org with more information. Kyle posted the following bulletin on MySpace:

Hey everyone,

Word is rapidly spreading through the grapevine that Lance Hahn, founder and frontman of the beloved J Church, passed away today after a long illness. As a fan and friendly acquaintance of Lance's for 15 years, I'm crushed. J Church is one of my favorite bands, and their music occupies more space on my iPod than anyone else's--it should considering they released 10,549,420 albums.

Snd On Snd was truly honored to release a split 7" with J Church this year. While we're helping plan a memorial/benefit show, we want to help NOW. So, 100% of the proceeds from any order of our split will go to Lance's memorial fund. Send $6 (postage paid) via PayPal to Info@CMYKyle.com. You can also donate $$ directly at vulcanvideo.com. Please help!

We're already missing you, Lance...

Kyle & snd on snd


J Church was one of the most prolific bands of their time. In addition to seven proper albums, they released an astonishing four collections of songs originally appearing on vinyl singles. Hahn was the main songwriter and led the band through various line-ups. Truly a big loss.

UPDATE: Kyle wrote a very nice piece over at the AV Club.
