Stereolab Guitarist Dies

By liz

Mary Hansen, a member of STEREOLAB for the last 10 years, died on Monday in London in a bicycle accident. Mary, 36, had been a guitarist and vocalist with the band for the past 10 years. Oddly enough, Hansen, along with fellow bandmates Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier, all guest on "Electric Circus," the new album by Chicago rapper Common that hit stores just this week (a photo of Hansen even appears on the record cover collage.) Stereolab remains one of the most influential bands of our time, and we extend our deepest sympathies to Tim, Laetitia, and all of Mary's friends and family.
