Whenever I feel burned out and never want to hear ANY music, I binge on The Fall.

Instant rejuvenation, never fails. Always restores my passion.

I know what I'll be listening to for the next few days (weeks...months....?)

But probably won't feel the quite the same this time.

RIP MES.

When I moved to Germany and first met my then girlfriend's dad, a buttoned-down civil servant (engineer/planner for the railroad) with a goofy streak, he took me upstairs to his den pretty much first thing and played a home recording of Rowche Rumble for me on his reel-to-reel (he had dubbed it off of John Peel, with tons of other things) and asked me over and over what it meant. "What does it mean, rowche rumble?" wide-eyed, grinning like a madman and nodding intently. I told him I didn't know. It was the first time that I'd ever heard The Fall in fact. RIP MES, you sparked the imaginations of countless people who were happier for it.

Chilean poet Nicanor Parra also died. I have never liked poetry, but I could always read Nicanor Parra's anti-poetry and smile. RIP.

burn this book

I was defeated by my own shadow:

My words took vengeance on me.

Forgive me, reader, good reader

If I cannot leave you

With a warm embrace, I leave you

With a forced and sad smile.

Maybe that’s all I am

But listen to my last word:

I take back everything I’ve said.

With the greatest bitterness in the world

I take back everything I’ve said.

Sad news indeed, but at least the dude was certainly able to live a full and prolific life. I listened to Hex Enduction Hour today in his memory. RIP.

I was saddened, albeit not surprised, to read about M.E.S. I've been on the Fall's unofficial fan page on Facebook for some time now, and whilst gossip and speculation are as rife there as on any fan forum, it's been common knowledge among the outer sanctum that he's been gravely ill for some time now.

I know the Fall cancelled a seven-night residency they were due to play in New York last year, and that the dates were re-scheduled for February 2018 - but when the rescheduled dates were also cancelled I thought to myself "it's over".

I'm not going to leave a teary-eyed elegy as I suspect he'd have scorned that, but I will raise a glass and dig deep into the back catalogue again as I have so many formative memories associated with it. Godspeed, you old contrarian genius you.

"Off Season" and its sequel made for very nauseating reading. The only books that made me want to be sick at times. He was good at suspense and intensity. RIP.

Experimental filmmaker Paul Clipson. Excerpts of his beautiful work can be viewed here: Paul Clipson's Vimeo

Also, there is a GoFundMe page for funeral and memorial costs.

Here's a pretty great interview with Clipson talking to Geeta Dayal about his work. He says that he's not a musician, but in my opinion, his approach was completely musical.

You might (like me) recognize him from '80s movies, but he got more famous later on a TV show.

Years later I found out he filled in for Levon Helm when LH didn't want to go to Europe with Dylan.
He's the drummer on the famous Dylan 'Royal Albert Hall' bootlegs! And he kicks some ass. He released a DVD of his 8mm home movies from the tour which is super cool. He also played with Johnny Rivers and Kenny Rogers (The First Edition).

RIP Mickey

RIP. He was a solid guy all around. He also had a weird speech impediment.
