Goodbye to a dear friend and deepest condolences to his family. Mike was truly lit from within. #MikeAtta

Was very sad to hear about the passing of Mike Atta this morning. He was a good friend of some of my good friends, and I was fortunate enough to spend an evening with him, his wife and son about eight years ago.

His blitzkrieg SoCal punk rock band The Middle Class were landmark pioneers in the evolution of UK-influenced punk into a brilliant brand of US steamroller punk, and then again into a haunting, wiry postpunk sound as The Middle Class themselves evolved.

My 2006 interview with Mr. Atta is here. Dynamite Hemorrhage sends its best wishes to Mike Atta’s family and friends.
