Jay Curley, bassist for Wollongong rockers Tumbleweed has been found dead in his home. He was 42.
It's truly sad to hear this news. From all accounts the party never ended for him, whatever that means....
Tumbleweed were a crushingly loud band, anchored in Jay's rich, sonorous bass. He was the lynch pin on which pivoted a very tight, very heavy band.
In a live setting, the band's high volume riffage was cathartic. The band's two finest records, 1995's "Galactaphonic" and 1997's "Return to Earth" are probably the best examples of the band's work, with Curley's deep pulsating bass runs vibrating through your rib cage - there's nothing finer.
Jay, you will be missed. Vale.
