Mimi Parker RIP


I was browsing and checking out the blogs yesterday when I clicked on The Swede's place and read the sad news that Mimi Parker the drummer and singer with Low has sadly died.
She was in her mid 50's and had ovarian cancer.

Thoughts go out to her husband and fellow band member Alan Sparhawk, her family and all those who knew her and were close to her.
She leaves such a great legacy. Low are a terrific and innovative band and have given us some great songs and albums over the years. Sadly I never got to see them live.
Here is the piece from the Guardian announcing this sad news

Rest easy Mimi



  1. Not only a great band, but really lovely, genuine people too. Such sad news. Thinking of Alan and their kids today.

  2. A lovely tribute, CC, I'm heartbroken by the news. A sad and untimely loss.

  3. Very sad news, so young too. Her vocals added so much to Low's sound. Big fan of them. Big fan of slow core and yet as they 'speeded up' I liked them more. Caveat here though was that I hated their last album Hey What which I thought was a mess. Unfair to mention that in these circumstances I suppose.
