Mick Karn, RIP.

Not a good start of the year for UK musicians.  Mick Karn, former bassist with British group Japan, has died of cancer at age 52.  Karn played fretless bass, and had one of the more distinctive styles you're likely to hear.  The song above, "Canton," appeared on their final album, 1981's Tin Drum.
