Song of the Day #945

Song of the Day: Inventions (full version at that link) is a composition by the band Maserati. A stand-out from the band's album, Inventions for the New Season, the track has also been creatively remixed. Take a look at two YouTube moments: this clip of a live version from the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia, and this clip from San Antonio, Texas, recorded on 18 October 2009. The latter clip is all the more poignant to watch because it was recorded by the ensemble just weeks before the tragic untimely passing on 8 November 2009 of Brooklyn-based drummer extraordinaire Jerry Fuchs. Fuchs had worked prolifically with such bands as LCD Soundsystem, !!! (pronounced "chk, chk, chk"), and The Juan Maclean. I never met him, but I had heard wonderful things about him from those who knew him. His passionate devotion to his craft is evident in the remarkable musical legacy he has left behind.

One of 'The Good Guys." An artist whose passion was a halo when he was on stage. He'll be missed like crazy.

Thanks for sharing him with all of us.

"The Kid."

I can't thank you enough for posting this. It brought tears to my eyes. I didn't know Jerry, but saw him in various settings and what you say describes him exactly. Thank you so much for this. Thank you.

Wow, an absolute classic and such a delight to listen to. Where o where have such masters of music gone nowadays?

Intimately, the post is really the greatest on this noteworthy topic.
