Sad News

Lil Chief Records has just received the tragic news that Voom founding member, Mac MacCaskill has passed away. He was an integral member of the group for over a decade and contributed to many of their well-known tracks. We are greatly saddened to hear of his passing. Here is his family's obituary from the NZ Herald:

"MACASKILL, Andrew Scott (Mac). Aged 49 yrs, passed away in the company of his darling Leisa on Thursday 13th September 2012 after a short illness. Most treasured son (Scamp) of Trish and Stuart and dearly loved brother of Grant and Helen and Ian and Sandie. Adored Dad of Sophie and Nic and the coolest Uncle Mac to Ella, Callum and Lewis. His loving nature and wonderful free spirit will be greatly missed by us all. A service will be held at 3:00pm Tuesday 18th September at the Purewa All Saints Crematorium Chapel, All Saints Rd, Meadow Bank, Auckland. Our sincere thanks to the Doctors and Nurses at the Mercy Hospice for their compassionate care of Mac and family. Donations please in lieu of flowers to the Mercy Hospice, Ponsonby, Auckland."

Here's a track from Voom's first album, Now I Am Me, with Mac on drums...
