Matt, that is just beautiful. Thank you.


Baby on lap, tears on face and baby, aching for her all over, I miss us three...can't she just come back for a visit?

It makes me so sad but that was so beautiful.


Beautifully written. How lucky you were to have worked with her so intimately, and how lucky we all were to have known her and had her in our lives.


Teri was just awesome. After an embarrassing personal crisis she, and many others sent me an email of support. But hers was the one that made me create my "Nice People" email folder. This was a great piece. Thanks.


beautiful, but really not sure why you had to throw in a childish putdown of Janet Weiss, who's both an awesome person and a ripper drummer, especially when it's just guesswork--"I'm not saying Janet stole Teri's shtick, but it's an awfully big coincidence, amirite?"

And besides, Janet was ripping it up with Sam Coomes in Quasi long before Slater-Kinney.

I can't help but feel this mars an otherwise beautiful and moving remembrance.


Thank you all for the kind words. Teri's spirit will certainly live on.

Greg, I'm sorry that you interpreted "I think Weiss got many/most of her ideas from Teri" as a "childish putdown." I was providing context for Teri's work for those that may not have been familiar with it. It was not meant to devalue Weiss' work. Reviews of Tizzy records often claimed we were influenced by Sleater-Kinney, which was ironic for a couple of reasons: 1) Tizzy's lead singer/songwriter Jen had never heard Sleater-Kinney, and 2) Tizzy's emergence predated Sleater-Kinney's. As for Teri's pre-Tizzy work, it was first released on Crystallized Movements records in the late 1980s.
