Mimi Parker Dies Aged 55 theguardian.com

Safi Bugel, the Guardian:

Mimi Parker, drummer, vocalist and songwriter for the Minnesota indie band Low, has died, her husband and bandmate Alan Sparhawk has said. Parker was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in December 2020. She was 55 years old, the band’s management confirmed.

Absolutely gutted. Low explored so many musical styles in the past thirty years, and found itself reinvigorated with its last three releases. Parker and Sparhawk are — were — an inestimable duo. I feel extremely lucky to have seen them play live this summer in an intimate performance at a local Legion branch.

Fuck cancer.
