Acclaimed indie rocker Karl Hendricks passed away Saturday morning, and as his friend Jon of the Comedy Minus One label stated, “wearing a Funkadelic t-shirt, at home with his terrific wife and children in Pittsburgh.” Karl was best known for his Karl Hendricks Trio releases throughout the years, over 25 years of work, culminating into a total of 9 albums. His recorded works would appear on Grass Records, Merge, and the aforementioned Comedy Minus One. In 2011 Hendricks took a leap of faith purchasing a record store he was working at and rechristened it Sound Cat.
Hendricks was diagnosed with cancer in 2014. We’ll remember Karl Hendricks through his timeless music.
