RIP: Lance Hahn of J Church (1967-2007)

Posted October 23rd, 2007 by eric

Cringer and J Church frontman Lance Hahn has died from kidney complications. In addition to his punk bands and zine contributions, Hahn also owned and operated Honey Bear records, which released Unwound’s self-titled “first” album.

“as far as the doctors can tell, this collapse was due to a sudden, drastic drop in blood pressure, which in turn was probably caused by a recurrence of the infection he had had in september combined with the stress of dialysis. he received immediate cpr from medical professionals at the dialysis center, but as it took fifteen or twenty minutes to resuscitate him, he suffered neurological damage from lack of oxygen to the brain, leaving him in a coma from which he never returned.”
