Tag Archive: “Comedy Minus One”

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┬áin Pittsburgh.” Karl was best known for his Karl Hendricks Trio releases throughout the years, over 25 years of work, culminating ┬áinto 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.


Comedy Minus One announces a long-overdue deluxe reissue of Silkworm’s out-of-print 1994 album Libertine (cmo019), the third and final full-length record by the band as a quartet. This is a double 12-inch pressing with a supplementary CD including “The Marco Collins Sessions” as well as two additional recordings from the band’s time at Pachyderm Studio.

Includes all-new artwork throughout (the revised cover is pictured at the top of this email) plus a full color insert with liner notes by Silkworm’s Tim Midyett.

Mastered from the original 1/2-inch tapes by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service, it hits stores May 6.
