************************************************
Jacky Yip (30 Mar 1985 - 1 Dec 2016) was born in Hong Kong. He was the lead vocalist and guitarist of the independent band Tacit Closet. His enduring passion for music took root from a young age and developed an enthusiasm for Suede, Blur, Placebo, Muse, The Smiths, Nirvana, Pulp etc. In 2008 he formed the rock trio Tacit Closet with two other friends, citing British Rock, Punk and Alternatives as their musical influences. As the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, Jacky remained active in the independent music scene in Hong Kong from then on, performing at different shows and creating over 10 original songs. The band gradually became known for its distinct style, with “Story Ends Abruptly”, “You Know”, “Future’s in Our Head”, “Stella” being cited as fans’ favourites. In early 2011 he was diagnosed with the rare disease thymoma, which had already spread to the lungs. In the past five years he had actively sought treatments. Although he was admitted into the hospital for his condition many times, he had displayed a remarkably strong will in overcoming one obstacle after another, while trying to live as normal a life as possible. During the time that he was ill, he ceaselessly worked and made music, and even performed publicly both as a member of Tacit Closet and as an individual musician. “Tomorrow Won’t Blow Us Apart” is one of his works during this time. On 30 November 2016, he was again hospitalised due to lung infections. His condition quickly deteriorated, and on the night of 1 December he passed away with his loved ones on his side. He was 31 at the time.
