A sad day for Skankin Pickle fans and a great loss to the ska community in general.
From the Asian Man Records newsletter:
This weeks newsletter comes with great sadness. It was just learned that my former bandmate Lynette Knackstedt passed away on Friday, December 7th, 2008. We went to middle school, high school, and spent 7 of our adult years together in Skankin’ Pickle. She was only 37 years old. I’ll write more on my personal blog for those who are interested.
That was a difficult way to start a newsletter. I’ll keep things short. Basically, we’ve started the pre-sales for the ALKALINE TRIO REDUX for GODDAMNIT. We will not be shipping the release until mid to late FEBRUARY of 2008. But because of the limited edition vinyl, people have been obsessed about pre-order, so here is all the information below.
