"Shmootzi The Clod"
age: 45 yrs 4 mos 3 days
Andrew and three others were shot at the Racer Café by Ian Stawicki. When the police caught up to him, he turned the gun on himself. The three others killed at the cafe were Jose Albanese, Kimberly Layfield and Donald Largen. Gloria Leonidas was killed when Stawicki carjacked her in a parking lot.
Albanese and Schmootzi were members of Seattle-based God's Favorite Beefcake, a folk band who jokingly write "a drinking band with a music problem" in the bio section of their official Facebook page. But Albanese's punk credentials stretch further back: He was a member of the The Brainz, an early component of the Placebo Records scene, and he later was a member of the seminal underground rock band Mighty Sphincter.
