R.I.P. Brendan Mullen
Definitely one of the good guys involved in this corrupt showcase we call "the music biz" has just left this mortal coil, age 60. In starting the legendary Masque venue in 1977, he was chief instigator, host and patron to some of the greatest goddamn noise this planet has ever heard. He's also co-responsible for two of the great books documenting classic LA punk: We Got The Neutron Bomb and Lexicon Devil (the Darby Crash oral history which should be required reading for anyone who claims an interest in punk rock or LA social history). Life, music and the universe as we know it would be a whole lot less interesting if it wasn't for Mullen and the great contributions he made.

Here's hoping there's some decent rockin' on the other side...
