Goodbye Mark Hollis.

It was issue #146 of MOJO magazine in January 2006. David Gray named Spirit of Eden as his "Last Night a Record Changed My Life." And to David, I am eternally grateful.

I had never heard it before, and it went
on to become my favorite album of all-time and is perhaps one of the most beautiful recordings ever made. It was Talk Talk's fourth album, just six songs, released in September 1988.

Rest easy (1955-2019).
