Devastated to report that Bryan St. Pere of HUM has died. I had to hibernate after I heard the news today. The band are a huge influence on my life and have been for years, always better than anything that came after them and many of their “peers” from the formative years. I’m honestly too sad to write about it at the moment in depth. Just vibing quietly alone to “Waves” off Inlet and thinking of all the years they have been important to me and the memories attached, etc. I didn’t know him or any of the band but they are legends in my pantheon. Bryan was the perfect combination of supportive percussive bedrock, stylish but controlled flourish and hard hitting chops. My heart goes out to all those who loved Bryan. Eternal Hails, to quote Darkthrone.
