Yeah. I rememberr spilling beer on his shirt right before he went on stage, no time to change or anything. All he said was "what a waste, but at least I smell better."

"I loved hearing Jason Molina sing. He was a genius at turning a phrase and making it into something more than the words in it. Jason was almost supernaturally prolific, and several times I watched him write an album's worth of songs in a weekend, recording them on the spot. Much of his recorded output with Magnolia Electric Co is the evidence of him and the band playing his songs for the very first time. It's amazing, really, that it was any good at all, much less so touching and fully realized. Jason was a unique talent and I will miss him. My heart goes out to all his friends and family, all of you I've met have been good people who did well by Jason."

-- Steve Albini, who worked on Molina's Songs: Ohia record Magnolia Electric Co. and several albums under the Magnolia Electric Co. moniker, has posted a tribute to the late singer-songwriter, who passed away Saturday, March 16 at 39, on the Electrical Audio message board.

"It was Triumph We Once Proposed" - Glen Hansard's charity EP with cover versions of Jason Molina songs


... with Jeff Panall, Jennie Benford and Dan and Rob Sullivan, who had recorded and toured with Jason for years in Songs: Ohia and were the core musicians on the Magnolia Electric Co. album

1. Being In Love
2. Hold On Magnolia
3. Farewell Transmission
4. Vanquisher
5. White Sulfur no "groundbreaking" rearrangements or anything, but the covers do the songs justice. sounds lovely.

His musical output is just crushing. I was so depressed when this happened.
