Some very sad news from Tycho Central... Max the Studio Cat has passed away at the grand old age of 18. Max disappeared a couple of weeks ago and due to his poor health, the Tychos have had to assume the worst.
Credited in the notes for every release, Max was Ken's constant studio companion... and critic! As Ken once put it: "I know if Max walks out, it's crap..."
Max is the eyes on the front cover and liner notes of Tasty. He's also responsible for the purring and slurping at the end of the CD - if you've ever wondered what that was, it was Max eating some cheese (his favourite food).
Faithful family pet and a part of the Tycho mythos, Max the Studio Cat will be sadly missed. In Ken's words:
Max, wherever you are, you will be missed but will live on in our memories. Thanks for 18 great years my little friend, RIP.
