Our friends over at K Records just sent us a message about how they’re auctioning off tons of rare K Records test pressings [Beat Happening, YACHT, Make Up, Old Time Relijun, etc.] along with a ton of other great things. The auction is to raise money for Rachel Jensen of Parenthetical Girls who just experienced a terrible tragedy when 4 members of her family were involved in a fatal car accident. We’re real bummed and are hoping the best for our northwest friends. Here is the message from K:
On the evening of Sunday, August 2, Rachael Jensen (keyboardist and violinist
for the Portland-based pop group Parenthetical Girls) suffered a major
tragedy: four members of her immediate family were involved in a fatal car
accident while traveling home from an annual family reunion. Her father and
two brothers were rushed to an intensive care facility, and are now in the
early stages of their recovery. Tragically, Rachael’s mother Kris, 51,
passed away at the scene. Rachel and her brother Jeremy, who runs the Idaho
record label Coming in Second, have always been close to us here at K.
We have donated a stack of assorted K test pressings to the Kris Jensen
Memorial Fund. They are included in an auction that runs through next
Tuesday. To make a donation to the fund or find out more about the many
auction items, visit www.
