    Default It's Raining Incredible Songwriters

    "Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse has died, according to a report from Rolling Stone, of an apparent suicide.

    Linkous made his debut under the Sparklehorse name with the 1995 album vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot, which yielded the minor hit "Someday I Will Treat You Good". He went on to release three more acclaimed records of fractured, experimental alt-blues: 1999's Good Morning Spider, 2001's It's a Wonderful Life, and 2006's Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain, as well as the Danger Mouse/David Lynch all-star project Dark Night of the Soul and the Fennesz collaboration In the Fishtank. A voracious collaborator, Linkous also worked with PJ Harvey, Daniel Johnston, Tom Waits, and many others.

    Last year, Dark Night of the Soul was released as a book and a blank CD and leaked to the internet due to a legal battle between Danger Mouse and EMI. Earlier this week, it was announced that Dark Night of the Soul would finally receive physical release this summer.

    Linkous had long struggled with depression and substance abuse. In 1996, an overdose left him in a wheelchair for months."

    I guess it was pretty inevitable. Time to dust off Good Morning Spider. RIP

    R.I.P. May you be happier now.

    In 1996, while supporting Radiohead on the first Sparklehorse tour, Linkous overdosed on alcohol, Valium and antidepressants and possibly other substances in his London hotel room [1]. Unconscious and with his legs pinned beneath him for almost fourteen hours, the resulting potassium buildup caused his heart to stop for several minutes after his body was lifted up. He was treated at St Mary's Hospital, London. The following surgeries nearly caused him to lose both legs and left him wheelchair-bound for six months.

    Listening to Sparklehorse now, and maybe for the rest of the day. I met him once, and he was just absolutely lovely.
