Biography

Titanic Love Affair started in the late 80’s by Jay Bennett. The band’s 1991 Major Label debut came out on Charisma Records and got rave reviews across the nation. After leaving Charisma in 1992, the band put out an EP in 1992-1993 appropriately titled “No Charisma”. Featuring 5 scorching tracks of the bands own brand of power-pop, this EP was an unsung classic! The bands sound was always compared to Dinosaur Jr. and The Replacements, always playing a little louder and a little more poppy than both bands, it was more like a rocking Cheap Trick meets The Mats meets Dinosaur Jr. Pop rock veterans Tommy Keene and Adam Schmitt were just a couple of people that took great praise for the band. In 1996, the band released its last record titled “Their Titanic’s Majesties Request” on No Alternative Records. The band broke up shortly after its release with Jay joining Wilco and Lars Gustafsson joining Mother May I.

    R.I.P. Jay Bennett - Alternative musician | 1963 - 2009 Creative multi-instrumentalist with the bands Wilco & Titanic Love Affair. Jay Bennett, who died on 24 May, 2009, aged 45, was guitarist and keyboard player with the American alternative band Wilco. He joined the band shortly after they released their début album in 1994 having previously been a member of Titanic Love Affair. His arrival into Wilco helped them expand their sound, utilising his multi-instrumental skills and a creative, experimental streak that became one of the band's hallmarks. He left in 2001 during the making of the seminal album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002) and went onto a solo career, releasing five albums. He lived in Urbana, Illinois where he worked in a private studio. Friend and musician Edward Burch confirmed his shock death saying: “Early this morning, Jay died in his sleep and an autopsy is being performed. The family is in mourning and is unavailable for comment at this time."
