Math is Hard
Algebra Suicide was a terrific Chicago band by the married couple Don Hedeker and Lydia Tomkiw. They used a drum machine, Don played excellent guitar and Lydia delivered her poetry over the top dead pan style. Their live shows always included a cool light show of slides projected over them as they played. Don and Lydia divorced several years ago but there music lives on. They created a very unique sound that has endured. Last week I found out the tragic news that Lydia has died. She was way too young that is for sure. And yes that is a picture of my Algebra Suicide pocket protector that I have worn many times. Click below to hear one of their greatest masterpieces.
