RIP Mark Hollis (1955 – 2019)

Mark Hollis was an English musician and singer-songwriter, the co-founder, lead singer and principal songwriter of the band Talk Talk.

I never knew their song “Such a Shame” was inspired by Luke Rhinehart’s The Dice Man (1971).

In fact, I never really knew Talk Talk at all, outside of the hits.

Tonight, I played some of their music and put “The Rainbow” from the 1998 album Spirit of Eden on repeat.
