Erika "Crumbly" Hynes RIP

Erika was a long-time friend who ran Little Type Mailorder, & worked with Maiko & I @ Lookout! Records in the late 1990s. She passed away on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 1, 2009, and is survived by her beloved husband, Patrick Hynes, and dog, Lucy.

We hit it off when she first moved to the East Bay back in 1994 or 1995, & our friendship continued over the years, ebbing & flowing as we worked together @ Lookout! and then later as she & Pat started up Little Type. She & Pat made a great team, and all of my heart goes out to Pat & her family.
